As summer comes to a close, Lovettsville held a Dog Swim event at the Lovettsville Community Pool Sept. 10 for dogs of all ages and breeds. The Community Center has hosted the event for at least 10 years, Beth Metzger of the Lovettsville Community Center said.
About 50 dogs enjoyed the cool water on the hot Saturday morning. Dogs had the run of the regular pool and kiddie pool, with the shallow ramp being the most popular spot.
