Since I first heard of the Dog Swim, I've wanted to take Riley. The last day our public pools are open is Labor Day. The day after Labor Day every year, one of the pools hosts a Dog Swim for the four-legged variety. Riley is an excellent swimmer, but I'm always worried that he won't stop when he gets tired. So with a gift card from Grammy, we got Riley a stylish orange life jacket. I was pleasantly surprised to see that he wasn't the only one wearing one!
