Some playful pooches had a little fun in the sun Saturday afternoon at Ottawa Metro Park.

The annual Dog Day at the Beach welcomed in dogs and owners alike to enjoy the Ottawa Metro Park Beach after the season has ended.  Toys and fresh water were available for the pups, who could swim and play in and around the water as their owners looked on.  The event has been put on for the last 14 years, and is a special exception to the rules normally held for the beach.

"Normally we don't let dogs in the beach, and a lot of times people want to come in with their dogs, so we created this day so people can come with their dogs and let them have fun," said Dave Zimmerly, a park ranger with the Johnny Appleseed Metro Park District.  "It's a great way for people to meet each other and also for the dogs to have fun."

Over 40 dogs participated in the event.
