After bare feet and the gleeful shouts of local kids are no longer a daily presence at Spokane’s five public pools, the sight of wet paws and sound of happy barks will be, at least for a few days. This annual “last splash” event invites local dogs and their owners to enjoy, for a small donation, a quick dip in the pools before they close for the season. Dogs must be healthy, well-mannered and attended by their owners while present, and be able to show proof of an updated rabies vaccine. Proceeds from the event support the upkeep of the High Bridge Dog Park. This year’s events takes place from 5:30-7 pm, unless otherwise stated, as follows: Aug. 25 at Comstock (3-4:30 pm), Aug. 26 at Shadle, Aug. 27 at Hillyard, Aug. 28 at A.M. Cannon, and Aug. 29 at Liberty.
Sun, Aug. 25-Thu, Aug. 29; times and locations vary • $10/event • Spokane Parks Aquatic Centers • bit.ly/DoggieDip2019
