What better way is there to top off a walk or jog with your four-legged friend than the two of you cooling off with a refreshing dip in the pool.
That is exactly what is planned Sunday (Sept. 9) with the Dog 5K-9 Walk and Swim at Franklin Park in Purcellville. The first walk and swim starts at 9 a.m. (check-in begins at 8:30) and the second one starts at noon (check-in at 11:30 a.m.).
The fee is $5 and you can register in advance on webtrac using code 162933. For more information, call 540-338-7603.
The Dog 5K-9 Walk and Swim is part of a full day activities with the fourth annual Loudoun Pet Expo. That event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Franklin Park and features a variety of activities for pets and their special people.
