The Kennedy Aquatic Center will let the dogs in from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday for the 10th annual Dog Days of Summer Swim. Sponsored by Trenton Parks and Recreation, the pool welcomes four-legged swimmers for a dip in the pool, treats, games and contests to include best swimsuit. Pet-friendly information and merchandise will be available from local businesses, with gifts courtesy of one of the events sponsors, Gibraltar Veterinary Hospital. The Trenton Fire Department and Dr. Gregory Raspbury will offer basic first-aid training for dogs. Entry fee is $5 per dog, and each animal must have its own handler.
