When the hot weather hits, who doesn't love getting a little wet and wild? Whether it's in the pool, at the beach, or with a water hose, it's the best. Just ask Christy the Westie!

This water-crazed Terrier is having the time of her life jumping after the water hose. Her owner is trying to wash the car, but Christy is having none of it. Water is for playing, she says, not cleaning! Watch as this spirited pup hops all around the yard chasing after the spray.


She's having such a great time. It's the little things in life, right? And Christy's enthusiasm for the water hose is a great way for her to keep cool when summer is in full swing. Looking for some more hot weather hacks? Check out our tips, here.

And while Christy is getting her feet (and the rest of her body) wet, this little pup, named Butters, is just doing what puppies do. What do puppies do? Well, right now this guy is just chilling and being cute. Not a bad gig.

Watch his adorable face and try not to let the cuteness overwhelm you.


Looks like this little guy is tired and could use a nap. And couldn't we all? Luckily for him, napping is just one of the many great parts of being a puppy — or any dog really. Did you know, in fact, that puppies sleep an average of 15-20 hours a day?! That's the life. Learn more about how puppers sleep, here.
