You could tell that the brand new Dog Days of Summer event at the Maplewood Pool was a hit even before the pool opened at 11 a.m. this morning as the cars filed into the parking lot — many of them with tell-tale bumper stickers such as “I [heart] my Border Collie.” (The event runs two hours, through to 1 p.m.)
The first-ever invitation for locals to bring their pooches to the pool for a dogs-only dip was a hit, as the photos attest.
Look for this event, the brainchild of Maplewood Department of Recreation Director Missi Mancuso, to return again next year.
