July 2012 Pets.ca photo challenge - Pets keeping cool

Anyone have any ideas for this month's photo challenge?

Have we done "Pets keeping cool", yet? Seems appropriate today.

That sounds like a good one for summer (despite it being cloudy and drizzly in Vancouver today).

I like it - Pets keeping cool it is - merging suggestion posts now. Thx!

Not sure how cool Huntley felt, but that sure is a great pic!! Did Buddy save him in the end, I hope?

Dusty has discovered that water isn't the only way to stay cool...

Then again, if there's no mud handy at the park, one can always just lay down in the water bowl...

Those are great pics! Like Marko said, no problem here in Vancouver staying cool, just get out of bed! We're still raining and very cool, no swimmin yet.

I wonder how the other dogs felt about having Dusty in the water dish? Too cute, he's adorable

We were down at Dogwood Park near White Rock on the weekend, they have a "pond" there that right now is a lot of dirty water, and a little mud flat at the bottom end... Dusty wandered into the shallow water over the mud flat and just laid right down. What a lovely mess that was! The weather around here this week, I think it's as much that he just likes laying in the water, moreso than trying to keep cool.

This is the closet Mollie or Gryphon come to water. They could use some lessons from Chum CsqU4r3d!

We'll just have to make Gryphon an Honorary Pack Member, DOG. The Pack totally understands and applaud both Gryphon and Mollie for allowing common sense to guide them in the presence of that substance from the devil, clean water!!

Is that Bailey in the pool with your daughter?

Chum looks like he's thinking "Holy cow Mom, you didn't tell me the water was that cold!" It's a great shot. Halo's with the pack and Molly and Gryphon on this one - don't even bother putting out a kiddy pool for this lab!

Not a swimmy pool as such, but we picked up a 4' kiddie wading pool at Toys R Us a couple summers ago for the Mini-Mutts... was something like $15.

What a shocker, that a dog named for a type of fish likes the water

Went to the beach in White Rock this past Sunday... first thing Dusty did when he hit the sand was find the first tidal pool, walk in, and lay down:



Running through the water helps keep one cool with all the splashing



It's always nice to share your cool with new friends (even if they don't seem to appreciate it)!



That's what I'm talkin' about!



Daisy likes a good paddle too:




"I'm plenty wet now, thanks... :P"
