The pool at the Lee District recreation center near Alexandria needs a good scrubbing anyway, so Fairfax County is letting the dogs take a swim Tuesday.
The pool at the center will be open to dogs from noon to 2 p.m. Tuesday. The cost is $5 per dog. All dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved.
People will not be allowed to swim with the dogs.
The pool is being opened to dogs in advance of a scheduled three-week cleaning.
