This Local Pool Does Something AWESOME On The Last Day Of Business! I Wish All Pools Did This!
In Calgary, this one public pool does something that no one else does, and it’s all for charity!
The summer season is over, schools are starting up again, and the weather might even be cooling down for some people. It’s the end of the swimming season, so public swimming pools are draining their pools, cleaning up, and closing down for the chilly winter season. A few years ago, the security officer had an idea…what if they opened the pool to the local dogs for a fee? The proceeds could go towards charity and the pool was about to be cleaned anyway. It would be a really fun way to bring the community together and let the dogs have the best day of their lives!
Some people took their dogs to this pool instead of to the lake, some people brought their dogs so that they could teach them how to swim, and some just brought them so that they could meet and play with other dogs! The only thing I could think about though…was all of that dog hair! Thankfully, my own dogs only shed if I brush them, but I can’t imagine the furry mess that gets left behind after a day like this! It’s a good thing they’re planning to clean up afterwards, or all of the drains would be clogged indefinitely!
