IMAGES: A Dog Paddle Afternoon at Fassnight Pool
With Labor Day comes the end of the pool season for the Springfield-Greene County Park Board. For humans that is. The following day is reserved for the dogs.
Aside from the occasional ball theft, dogs of various breeds and sizes played in harmony at Fassnight Pool. This was the eleventh installment of the annual canine aquatics event, where dogs are free to roam the pool grounds or waters, many diving in and fetching balls.
Owners paid $8 for the service, with proceeds benefiting Cruse Dog Park, Springfield’s first off-leash park.
