Your Fur Baby Deserves A Nice Cool Dip In The Pool Too!

Summer is about to come to a close and so is this year's pool season as the kids head back to school and the rest of us settle in for the return of our "daily motions" but did you think about your doggy this summer?

Of course you've fed them and took for walks but did you do something FUN with them while also giving them a chance to cool off from the brutal East Texas heat? Well pack a "doggie bag" and bring your doggie out to Pawchella!

"Pawchella" Is The Annual Event Hosted By Tyler Parks And Recreation.


This event is an opportunity for dogs of all sizes to cool off from the summer heat. Admission is free, and there will be a best dressed competition for the dog’s summer swimwear where participants will be able to compete for prizes. Of course there's some things you need to know before you go!
