Let’s pawty: Annual pool event for dogs returns Sept. 25

It’s time for local dogs and their owners to “pawty.”

The city’s annual Soggy Doggy Pool Pawty returns to the municipal pool Sept. 25 for it’s end-of-the-season event that invites canines to enjoy some water play and doggone fun.

Three sessions are planned: from 8:45-9:45 a.m., from 9:50-10:50 a.m. and from 10:55-11:55 a.m. There is a $5 fee per dog to participate.

Those interested must register by Sept. 23. No sign-ups will be accepted the day of the event.

Also note, at least one person 16 or older must be present for every two dogs, and all dogs attending must have a current city license and proof of rabies vaccination upon registration.

Pool staff and Boulder City Animal Control personnel will be on location to help monitor pets’ safety, but owners must be responsible for the actions of their animals.

Since the event is outdoors, no face coverings are required, but those attending are asked to be aware of their physical distance from others.

After the event, the aquatics staff will begin preparing the pool for winter swim sessions and activities. It will be closed through Oct. 10 to install the bubble and perform maintenance. It is expected to reopen Oct. 11.

Additionally, the pool will be closed to the public Sept. 24.

The pool is at 861 Avenue B.

Reinvention helps businesses adapt to challenges

Looking back to Aug. 9, 2018, I remember the trepidation I felt of the unknown outcome resulting from the traffic diversion off the interior roads of Boulder City and on the freshly built Interstate 11. Would businesses close immediately? Would residents now be able to utilize the retail, dining and services on the (Boulder City) Parkway? Would the novelty of the adventure of a new freeway wear off soon? Would Boulder City have done enough preparation for what lay ahead?
