Today’s third annual Maples at the Sonatas Pooch Plunge made a big splash. Warm, sunny weather welcomed us as we gathered around noon.
Nearly 50 people and about a dozen dogs mingled poolside with nary a growl or yip, though there was a fair amount of butt sniffing going on.
The big dogs, like Darby, swam in our pool…
… while the little dogs had their own wading pool.
Cookie came dressed for swimming, thanks to a creative “mom,” Cathie.
Josie stands still long enough to have her picture taken.
Bauer takes a break from the activity and rests in the shade.
Some of our neighborhood shih tzus get reacquainted.
The humans had a good time too. Linn, Edna, and Lorraine found a shady spot.
Joe may have found the best spot of all.
And Kelly wants to know when we will have the next Pooch Plunge.
