Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall’s Zembiec Pool was full of pups of all breeds Saturday, paddling through the water during Pups in the Pool — a final goodbye to the outside pool before it closes for the winter.

The outside pool is open May to September.

Matthew Jongema, an aquatics program manager with Marine Corps Community Services, said it was the fifth annual Pups in the Pool event with the Marines Aquatics Program.

“It’s a send off to the summer,” Jongema said. “(During the event) our regular swimmers can include their four-legged friend in the activities.”

The pool was open to all the dogs and they swam, caught pool toys and interacted with each other.
