Default Favorite warm weather things

Summer is just around the corner and the weather is finally starting to get nice. I'm really excited to have a dog to go out and dog stuff with and take places.

What are your favorite warm weather things?

Hudson just got a baby pool to play in because it was HOT this weekend. A co-worker gifted us one of those water bottle things with the plastic tray for drinking water
- Like so -

I really want to get him bubbles. He loved trying to bite the splashing water from the pool, so I think he would LOVE bubbles.

What are you favorite warm weather things?

Definitely the baby pool pool for Pay, he loves splashing in it. Auggie last year had that a-ha moment where he realized the pool was nice and cool when it was hot. Hopefully he will remember this year haha. I'm not sure about Pepper, I don't think she is going to like the pool.
Then of course I have my larger pool that they all swim in. Again, Payton likes it, Auggie is less thrilled by it but he does enjoy cooling down (then he wants to get out immediately.) I have yet to decide where I'm going to set it up at my house. I have a car port on the back of my garage over a patch of asphalt, but the sun doesn't come in there so it won't get warm. I think I'm going to set it up in the front part of my yard.
Let's all cross our fingers for Pepper thinking water is THE BEST THING EVER and she can be an AMAAAAAZING Dock Dogs star hahahahaha. (oh God it will never happen.)

Payton LOVES playing in the sprinkler too. Auggie doesn't. XD

Auggie loves bubbles, but he tends to land on his back legs when he jumps for them in a way I do not want my old man to be landing, so whenever we play with bubbles we have to play low to the ground. Payton doesn't know what to make of them - he runs after them and chomps one and looks offended, hahaha. And Georgie just wants to chase Payton and Auggie rather than the bubbles LOL. Predict that Pepper will be terrified by bubbles!

Really, I don't do anything different but we seek water as often as possible.

Well, Wesley melts into a puddle when it gets over 75 degrees. He perks up around water, but he basically takes a break from existing in the summer.

ETA, with that being said, he really loves going to the beach. It's only open to dogs for 2 more weeks though and then we're out of luck.

Sitting/reading on the grass at the park while Merlin plays, I love just spend lazy afternoons together.

If we can find a dog friendly one.. THE BEACH!

Oh and of course, Merlin's favorite, ice cream!

We are like a 5 minute walk to the beach, so we go there a lot and Teagan swims around in it. We also go to one of the lakes pretty much every weekend so Teagan spends a lot of her time swimming.

I plan on getting one of those little kiddie pools here soon.

I have a pond just for the dogs in the front yard, it used to be a hole for a trampoline, but I figured it was put to much better use as a dog pond. Yarrow loves it, Jasper wouldn't go in it for the world. But Yarrow is the one who waaay overheats in the summer!

And then we pretty much go to the beach every day in good weather, too. There are a few around (closest is about a 5 min walk or less) and all of them are at least moderately dog-friendly (as long as your dog is relatively well behaved). So that's pretty much where we spend our afternoons!

On the ragged edge of the world
I'll roam
And the home of the wolf
Shall be my home

We spend summer wishing it was winter. It gets hot here. And my kiddie pool sprung a leak.
