Wag-N-Romp goes to the dogs

Annual pooch swim closes swimming season for the year

Posted

The annual Lone Tree Wag-N-Romp marked the end of the swim season with a dogs-only swim at the Cook Creek Pool Sept. 7. The event drew hundreds of dogs of all shapes and sizes who scoured the pool for one last swim.

Before South Suburban Parks and Recreation drains the pool for the year, the dogs are invited to fetch tennis balls and frisbees in the pool (though some tried to drink the water).

Sammy the Samoyed had mixed feelings about the whole thing. He preferred the shallower end and didn’t care to swim too much.

“We’ve been coming for years. And it’s Colorado, so there’s not much access to water,” said Steve Tempelman, Sammy’s owner. “(Sammy) just loves it. He’s a very heavy dog when he’s wet — a lot of fur. He just swims once a year.”
