Dog days of summer: Colorado hearts pooches

21-month-old Elizabeth Risley climbs aboard a bronze sculpture in Acacia Park Tuesday morning, May 31, 2011. The sculpture was a substitute activity because her grandmother, Diane Shearer, said she brought Elizabeth downtown to see the Uncle Wilber Fountain. the fountain operates from noon to 6pm daily. An "Uncle Wilber Celebration" is planned for Acacia Park June 11 from 10am to 2pm. Mark Reis, The Gazette
