I'm super excited! This is my first summer, and I have sooooo many plans: long walkie-walks, chasing leaves and ballies, my pug-size pool that Mommy bought me. But Mommy and Daddy said the heat and summer can be bad for me. Daddy calls me a smooshed nose and told me that I can't be in the heat too long because I'll overheat and get sick. I'm not scared, 'cause I know that Mommy and Daddy will keep me safe and cool. But, I still like to play, especially with by best bud Spencer at our park.
So, Mommy and Daddy went to the Treats-Are-At-My-Feet store called Petfood Express. I LOVE this place, as they designed it for Pugs...All the delicious treats are right at my feet! But Mommy kept me away from all the goodness and we went to the clothing area....Ut oh, I don't like to wear things unless it's a formal occasion. Mommy and Daddy searched and found this:
It's soaked in cool water and I then get to wear it. It's supposed to keep me a little bit cooler when I'm outside. Mommy and Daddy told me, though, that it isn't a substitute for safe summer play, especially for us pugs. So I still have to take breaks and maybe use my pool!
At home, I tried it on and don't think I'm gonna like it too much:
If it helps, I'm all for it. I'll get used to it and try my best not to chew it like a delicious towel.
Mommy said I should put some info in my blog to help doggies in the summer:
