2012 Pooch Paddle

Nancy Green of Sioux City coaxes her dog, Sadie, to jump into the pool during a pooch paddle event held Monday, Aug. 6, 2012, at Sioux City's Leeds swimming pool. The pooch paddle allows dogs and their owners to use the pool after it has been closed to the public for the season. Money raised from the event will be go to the Lewis and Clark Dog Park in Sioux City's Bacon Creek Park. Pooch paddles will be held at the Leeds pool today (Aug. 7) and at the Riverside pool on Sept. 4 and 5.Sioux City Journal photo by Tim Hynds
