Members of Wiltondale swim club in Towson say they were the first ever to hold a dog swim at the end of the swim season. Regardless, the annual anticipated event draws many canines panting for their one chance to do the doggie paddle in the community pool and crowds of humans to cheer them on. It's ready set - run! And off they go, diving off boards, leaping in from the sides and soon the pool is a swirling, choppy, wet playground to the pups. "It's chaotic," said Janine Ptak, executive director of the Wiltondale Pool.

When Pat and Dan Collins were moving from London to Baltimore two years ago, they weren't looking to buy another house. In fact, they already owned a townhouse in Timonium that was formerly used as a rental property, where they and their two children, Peter and Grace, had planned to relocate. Despite their intentions, however, the couple decided to look around, out of curiosity, at other houses on the market. Three house-tours later, they found something they hadn't planned on - their ideal home, in a neighborhood called Wiltondale.

If you want to know what it's like to live in Wiltondale -- a neighborhood nestled within the greater Towson community -- just listen to Richard Peyton, who moved there 11 years ago. "My wife knew about the neighborhood because her aunt and uncle raised eight children here. She always said that someday we would live in Wiltondale," Peyton said. "We had friends that lived here, and they invited us down one day to the neighborhood pool for a crab feast. And that is really what sold us. What we saw that day was this incredible neighborhood feeling that was just so much a part of the party."
