The hot summer temps are likely getting to most of us by now, but a little Terrier by the name of Christy can’t wait to beat the heat by jumping straight into the pool.
There’s no skirting around it — it’s hot out there, and people from coast to coast are looking for ways to beat the heat in a number of ways.
One little West Highland Terrier named Christy has a particularly preferred method, which involves the fun of simply bolting out the back door and jumping headfirst right into the pool.
Take a look as the practically flies off the patio and into that cool, blue water, where she swims in circles to her heart’s content.
While responsible pet ownership is a job that requires work 365 days a year, it’s especially important to keep our pets cool in the summer months, paying special attention if they’re older, overweight, or have shorter snouts, which makes the intake of air a bit harder than it would be for their long-nosed counterparts.
Easy solutions to keep in mind include shortening walks when you notice your pup is out of breath (or taking a break in the shade if you’ve wandered far,) keeping water on hand at all times, tying a wet bandana around their neck when going for a long hike, and above all else, keeping them out of hot cars.
If you’re going to allow your four-legged friend a dip, be sure to supervise them at all times, and keep these additional pool safety tips in mind to make for a cool summer!
