Pooches play in the pool

The annual Barker Days event brought cavorting canines and their owners to H2O'Brien Pool in Parker on Sept. 9. “It's a great time,” said Mark Adams who joined the fun in the shallow end of the neutralized water with his golden retriever Zuzu. “We look forward to it every year.” Roughly 1,200 dogs showed up to splash in the pool, and the sunny weather allowed many of the four-legged swimmers to dry off as they played fetch or ran through agility courses on the baseball fields at O'Brien Park. Parker resident and Barker Days first-timer Matt Realsen brought his labradors, Roxy and Dutch, to O'Brien for more than an hour of catching and fetching in the pool. “It's a little hectic, but it's fun,” Realsen said. “Lots of dogs but they're having a blast.”
