Annual dog swimming event cut short when canine uses pool as toilet


Giggle, this pooch obviously hasn’t listened to Lochte’s message

A planned four-hour dog swim at the Longview Swim Center was cut short Saturday after one canine had a bit of an accident.
The Dog Days of Summer Dog Swim began at 10 a.m. at the swim center. About an hour and fifteen minutes later, someone spotted dog feces in the pool, officials said.
Longview’s Parks and Recreation Manager Seth Pyle said the event, which has occurred annually for more than 6 years, has never dealt with the situation before.
