Someone, most likely a dog person, came up with a marvelously fun idea – before closing the pool for the season, let in the dogs! It seems to have caught on and every year I see more communities taking part. I had the opportunity to photograph my community “pooch plunge” this year. What a total blast! Some dogs were a bit timid at the start, some jumped right in, but by the end of the night, everyone seemed to be smiling, wet, and completely worn out. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
