More than 1,100 dogs splashed down Sept. 7 at Barker Days, the Town of Parker’s annual event at H2O’Brien Pool. A handful of pups were too distracted by the mayhem to get in the pool, and a few of the more hesitant dogs were tossed in by their owners. But the retrievers showed little hesitancy, launching themselves into the deep end over and over to chase after balls and discs. It was an ideal way for the canines to cool off on what turned out to be a 95-degree day. Photos by Chris Michlewicz
