11: Warning, Splash Zone!
Luna splashing in a dog pool / Photo by author

We have another heat wave hitting the UK, and when it gets hot out there, it's vital that we keep our dogs cool and well hydrated.

That's why I got Luna a doggy pool, so now she can get wet and cool down whenever she's feeling toasty. Dog pools are just like paddling pools, but they're made from tough material so to withstand accidental clawing and chewing. Wouldn't be any fun if our dogs burst a blow up pool now, would it?

Luna loves the pool, she occasionally gets out to rest under some shade, but other than that she's been in there splashing about like noones watching. I feel great knowing she's keeping cool and having fun at the same time.

If you get a dog pool, make sure to supervise your dog at all times. Treat your dog as if they were a baby because just like humans dogs can drown too. Oh and beware the splash zone, you're going to need one!

That's all for this week, folks.

See you next week!
