CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - The Chambersburg Municipal Pool gave dogs a chance to go for a swim Saturday during its first Puppy Paddle.
"We have three generations of people here," said Nadine Deardorff of Chambersburg, who brought her miniature poodle, Petie, to go swimming.
Deardorff's mother, Carole Taylor, brought Winn-Dixie, a Picaron shepherd, and Deardorff's daughter, Kathryn, brought Molly, a Pomeranian.
"(Petie) loves it - poodles like the water, they have webbed feet," Deardorff said. "It's good therapy for his hip dysplasia."
"I think it's wonderful," said Taylor, of Shippensburg, Pa. "It's a good physical activity."
Deardorff said Molly was a little scared of the water, but still went in.
"She's afraid, but she's having fun," Deardorff said
John Ruseche said the Puppy Paddle was the one day when dogs were allowed in Chambersburg Memorial Park.
"They should open it all up," said Ruseche, who brought Wolfgang, a Siberian husky.
"It's different for (Wolfgang) - coming from the country, he swam in creeks," Ruseche said. "He knows how to swim and does it well."
