Drool for joy!
April 22, 2009
SILVERTHORNE ” Summit County’s dogs will bark for joy ” Silverthorne Recreation Center’s ninth annual Doggie Day in the pool is set for Sunday. Three sessions are scheduled: 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., with up to 75 dogs per session.
“The dogs are so excited,” said Paul Kulik, Silverthorne’s aquatics coordinator. “It’s unbelievable. A lot of times it’s more exciting for owners. I have a dog and I love having him at doggie day.”
According to Kulik, some people even put their dogs in life jackets. And there’s a lot of chasing Frisbees and tennis balls.
Right after Doggie Day, Silverthorne’s pools are drained and cleaned. They will remain closed from April 27 through May 10.
“All of our pass holders are eligible to go to the Breckenridge pool during that time frame,” Kulik said.
Dog participants must have proof of vaccines for rabies, distemper and bordatella.
