Connie Matlock plays with her dog Rudy during the annual Doggy Dip at Deer Creek Pool Sunday, August 14.

When the summer sun is scorching and the pool is open for one more day, everyone and their dog come out for a swim. Literally.

Deer Creek Pool hosted its annual Doggy Dip on a recent Sunday evening, and more pools in the South Jeffco area were scheduled to host similar events before closing for the season.

Pet owners of all ages brought canines of varying sizes to enjoy the water, the fun and the community.
