ANN ARBOR – Sorry pups--the dog swim at Buhr Park Pool is canceled this year.

In an email update, the City of Ann Arbor said that the annual canine fun event won’t happen this season.

“Buhr Park Pool will be closing Sunday, Aug. 28, for the season. As a result, we are sorry to report the annual dog swim is cancelled,” officials wrote.

The event encourages Tree Town dog owners to bring their four-legged friends to splash in the pool before it’s closed for the season.
