Making a splash: Furry friends paddle their way through Doggie Dip Day

As the gates of the Ken-Caryl Ranch pool opened Saturday, dogs of all shapes and sizes poured in.

The parade of pups signaled the start of the final session of Doggie Dip Day. The canine event — now in its 12th year — includes a free swim session, and diving, swimming and retrieving competitions. It’s held at the pool after it closes for the summer, and there are three 60-minute sessions for Ken-Caryl residents and their dogs to choose from.
