This Sunday, September 12th, all licensed and vaccinated dogs are invited to bask in the dog days of summer by getting wet at Dog Paddle 2010. The annual fun and frolicking fund-raiser benefits the MPD's K9 Unit. The event will be held at the Goodman Pool from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Admission is $10 per dog, and the price includes two humans. Humans coming without a dog must pony-up $5 to see the furry celebration, which will include contests like "longest jump" and "biggest splash." There will be prizes for the winners.

MPD K9 officers will also be on hand to help keep the pool peaceful for the 4th annual Dog Paddle event.

"Dog Paddle 2010" is sponsored by Capital K9s, a non-profit organization that supports the expansion and maintenance of the MPD's K9 Unit.

The event is rain or shine.
