It was a hot day, but a beautiful evening, so we went to Lake Calhoun for an evening walk and to enjoy the lake and sunset. Also a perfect opportunity to test out their new cooling vests! :)

And then a special stop on the way home!

Petey licks his lips in anticipation while Belle wastes no time trying to jump out. :)

We walked about three miles and the vests stayed nice and cool the entire time. Belle was still panting, but their bellies remained cool, so they did help! It was in the low eighties when we were walking. What a beautiful evening!

Both of them are very cute too:flirt:

Glad they had such a great time and the cooling vests kept them cool.

Puppy cups!!!!!!


Now my guys just saw this and are giving me dirty looks , they said these look much better than the small ice cream cones they had for Chloe's b-day. :sad:

At first I thought they had life-vests on. But they're for keeping them cool? I haven't seen those before. Sweet puppies!:lovestruck:

Belle & Petey seemed to enjoy their vests, good to hear they work :highfive:

I guess judging by Petey's reaction they know what "puppy cups" mean :laughing:

Thanks guys!!!

Rainbow, I love using a coupler with them for "group" outings. :) They walk well on it and it's easier for me to just have to hang onto one leash. The one annoyance is that they do get tangled from time to time though. but overall, I really like using one! :thumbs up

These (http://www.coolvest4dog.com/) are the cooling vests I got for them. But yes, they are meant to help keep dogs cooler and to help prevent overheating. It covers their vital organs and helps to keep them cooler. This was our first time using them, but I was happy with how they worked! Belle's was a little too big, but even in the heat and humidity, after three hours, the vests were still COLD to the touch and the dog's bellies stayed cool too. Awesome! :)

Oh GOOD! I tried not to post as many this time so you could see them, LOL! :)

So far so good with the vests! I got some stares and some chuckles by people around us though. I'm sure they had no idea what they were for. :) Ah well! :) Belle does NOT handle heat well so this is a GREAT thing for her to have especially! If it's over 80 degrees, she can't go more than 5-10 minutes without collapsing on her belly. With the vest, we went for over an hour no problem! :thumbs up
