Cooling off

Gunner, a Dalmatian pup, pulls his owner Collin Stone, of Sugarcreek, to the bank under the railroad bridge off Sugarcreek Drive Thursday. Gunner likes to swim but doesn’t like his paws sinking in the soft dirt under the water’s surface says Stone. Stone and Gunner were waiting for friends to join them for a cooling swim in the creek.
