The Cook Creek Pool is closed for the summer, but before the facility was drained, it went to the dogs.
The 2018 Wag N' Romp dogs-only swim opened Cook Creek's gates for a canines of all shapes and sizes, dozens of them, with no shortage of things to fetch and chase in the water.
“I'm pretty sure this is what heaven is like,” said Jamie Coleman of Lone Tree. She moved to Lone Tree in March and this was her first time at the Wag N' Romp.
The retrievers and collies fetched tennis balls and Frisbees in the deep pool while the rest of the dogs splashed around in the kiddie pool nearby. Many of the smaller dogs, some donning custom life jackets, stayed at the water's edge, barely dipping a paw before retreating to dry land.
“Watching the dogs with their sensory overloads is interesting,” said Sean Graves. His chocolate Labrador, Rambo, came in second in the swimming competition. He and his family brought all five of the family dogs for the swim. “It's really cool the community actually does this for everybody. It's one thing everyone has in common — we love dogs.”
