Lori emailed this to me:
I "rescued" a small brown stuffed dog (plush) out of the Applause Fountain last night. Mrs. Koch called me; she tried to get it out with a mop, but it was not long enough (because the dog was next to the hands in the center of the fountain) so I had to bring a long telescoping pole from the water park.
The young boy (about 12 years old) who'd lost the dog thought it was the coolest dog now since it had been swimming. It was the first rescue of the season!
Lori added a side note: I thought Mrs. Koch said there was "poop" in the fountain; my 2-way radio cut out when she said "plush" so I misinterpreted it as "poop." I had the hardest time figuring out why the boy was still there and wanted it back!
