    That’s our Eddie! He hates swimming, but loves tennis balls. We bring him along with his bro-fur Jeff so he doesn’t feel left out of the action. Super fun event! Highly recommend for any water loving pups!

    I hope that the clean the pools out really well since I, my nephew, and about seven other people I know are incredibly allergic to dogs. Anaphylactic shock allergic. I’m completely frustrated already with the amount of freedom dogs now have in restaurants, buses, and places like QFC – places I could go without usually needing to carry an epi-pen for the most part. The increased amount of constant contact with dogs has made it really hard on me and my nephew. And, the owners are usually asses if I say “Sorry, I’m/He is super allergic to dogs – please don’t let yours too close to me/us.”. Over and over I am rebuffed, told it’s my problem, not theirs, or they proceed to let the dog continue to come over, now unleashed. I’ve been nipped by a dog on the bus (afternoon crowded bus, too)  and stuck in the ER for several days before. Come the hell on! Passive-aggressive dog owners need to learn that they are not the center of the universe. If I have to bend to every gluten-free, keto-proud, food hostage at work (compared to peanut allergies and such that can kill someone – they deserve to be high maintenance for sure), then the least I can ask for is not to have dogs touch me because I might f—ing die. Epipens are not the answer. Respect for other people outside of themselves is.We won’t be returning to the pool anytime soon thanks to this. We also couldn’t go to Wild Waves thanks to the Dog Days event.  It sucks. Mostly for my nephew who is just a kid.

Sorry, comment time is over.
