Stay Cool With a Dog Pool: Cosmo Havanese Beats the Heat

Giant water bowl or doggie pool?
Today's installment of Monday Mischief is all about staying cool! If you haven't heard, this past weekend was a scorcher in Atlanta.  But with a little help from Cosmo's Twitter pal @WillowWiggles, we found a new way to beat the heat. Lucky for us, Willow lives close by, so we popped right over and Cosmo got this lesson in pool fun!



Since it wasn't going to get any cooler...

We set off to get our very own backyard pool.


And Cosmo jumped right in, along with his toy and all the leaves that already are falling. We found our pool at Toys "R" Us, but we've heard you also can find them at hardware stores, Walmart and some pet stores.  Ours was $7... that's a lot of cool fun for a few bucks! We chose the plastic variety, more durable for frisky paw nails.


Cosmo's toy, the Hartz Dura Play Boomerang works great in the pool because it floats and squeaks!


All cooled off and ready to run, Cosmo zoomed around the backyard. Only since it's been so hot, bunches of dead leaves are already falling off the trees...

Whaaaat?!!
And they stick to a wet dog!


 Cosmo invited a few of his pals over too.


They were not as impressed with his pool...


Although they did pose for a few pics! 

That's ok, more room for me! 
Ahhh!

Now head on over the Monday Mischief Blog Hop and see what everyone else has been up to!

  1. Ha ha! That video is so cute! I have been looking for a pool just like yours, but they are all sold out in my town :( The only one I have been able to find was a tiny one (smaller than yours) for $25! If the heat continues I might have to cave and just buy the last pool in town...

    1. I went to four stores before I found one! I heard the Ace Hardware here had a pile of them yesterday too. I saw much larger ones for about $25... those would fit both Cosmo and me! Good luck!

  7. Hey Cosmo,

    You had a pool party with your buddies - I wish I'd known, I'd have come over, I'm sure I'd have hopped in with you and we could have caused some Mischief!! Tee Hee

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  8. Cosmo is looking quite at home in his new swimming pool. I love that last picture. Maybe we should get a nice swimming pool for our boys so they can wade around on my patio :)

    Take care,
    Colby

  9. Glad you like your pool, Cosmo! We tried that for our dog, and she really didn't want anything to do with it. Here's a video of our dog with the backyard pool: http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2010/09/cant-let-that-pool-go-to-waste.html

  10. Hey, you gotta have some retractable pool covers for those kinds of pools! You can't be too sure these days.

  11. Come to think of it, I should also get my dog a backyard pool. The only thing she's been dipping into lately is an old wash basin we picked up somewhere. She definitely deserves something better.

  12. That's an adorable pool! I should get one of those for my own dog; spring break's coming in, and she'd definitely want to take a dip every day. I wonder if the local stores have some?

  17. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better? xackyroach.sitew.org
