Doing The Doggy Paddle: Dogs Swim in Morgantown Pool For Good Cause

MORGANTOWN -

Sunday was the final open day at Marilla Park Pool in Morgantown, and it went out with a bark.

For the 12th year, Animal Friends of North Central West Virginia finished out the summer with canine pool party.

‘Dog Splash 2012' expected more than 350 wagging tails in the pool Sunday raising money for the no kill shelter.

The no kill shelter hoped to raise between $2,500 and $3,000, but said if nothing else the event is fun to just sit back and watch.

"Just seeing all the dogs having a good time, especially the children, they come out with their dogs and you see them bonding and they're happy. It's just so cute," said Ronda Smith of Animal Friends.
