Kady also loves to paddle around a swimming pool. Does pool chlorine bother dogs' eyes, nose, or ears? According to the AKC, it can— just like some humans are extra sensitive to chlorine. But, the AKC says, it's generally safe. Just be on the lookout for red eyes or other signs of discomfort.

Is this pup in a river or the ocean? Who knows? Who cares? This happy doggo certainly doesn't!
