BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) –– With warmer temperatures, you may be tempted to take a dip in the pool, but BREC says today is for the dogs.

Pups and their owners splashed around Liberty Lagoon for their annual End of Summer Dog Pool Pawty. Liberty Lagoon Aquatics Manager Daniel Burg said, “BREC strives to be social equity and social equality. So why can’t animals be a part of that mission?”

The pools undergo the same level of maintenance, so Burg suggests you “wash your dog off, give them a shower because you don’t want them to be Itching is scratchy from the dry chlorine.”

If you missed out on this year’s event, it will be back next year.
