Dog day swim Saturday

Calling all friendly dogs: bring your favourite human to join the Courtenay Memorial Outdoor Pool for a fifth annual dog day swim.

THE ANNUAL POOCH-A-POOLOOZA happens at the Courtenay Memorial Outdoor Pool for a fifth time.

Calling all friendly dogs, bring your favourite human to join the Courtenay Memorial Outdoor Pool for a fifth annual dog day swim.

Pooch-a-Poolooza will happen this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is a cash donation to the Comox Valley SPCA. Courtenay Recreation hopes to surpass last year’s donation of $500.

Woofy’s will be on site with treats and if you’re a good dog maybe even a new toy. If you’re nervous around deep water, the shallow kiddie pool will be open, as well as the main pool.

Make sure you come well rested and ready to play with other dogs. This is a family-friendly event and everyone is more than welcome to come and watch.

For more information, call the Lewis Centre at 250-338-5371.
