Summer is not for everyone, especially some cats and dogs who always wants to keep their bodies cool during the summer’s hot weather. During this season, you might see your pets lying around in the coolest parts of your home, probably with a fan facing them. Sometimes, the owners will give them refreshing cool showers.
This German Shepherd found the perfect place to escape the summer heat.
A family from Oklahoma was suffering from the intense heat of the sun, especially their gentle German Shepherd. Each member of the family has their ways of enduring the heat, and their dog has come up with a clever idea to keep himself cool like everybody else. His idea was just a little outside-of-the-box!
The family was surprised to see that someone other than the birds was using the birdbath.
The family owns a birdbath and they positioned it outside in their yard for the birds to enjoy. One day, they took a glance outside their window and saw a brown-furred thing taking up space on the birdbath that was too big to be called a bird.
The family snuck outside to take a closer look, and that was when they realized that the birdbath is for more than just the birds.
They discovered their dog soaking himself in the small pond of water in the birdbath.
They immediately took their cameras out to capture the unusual scene that they were witnessing. As the family videoed their dog in the birdbath, their other dog came outside. He looked curiously at his brother, who was finding the right position in the cold bath he made for himself. Moreover, the family found out how convenient the birdbath was for their dog as he didn’t have to leave it to take a sip of water.
It was amazing how the giant dog managed to fit himself in the small pool of water.
The only thing keeping the birdbath standing was its thick, concrete pillar, although it is still worrying that it might get knocked down, especially with a giant dog sitting on it. However, the German Shepherd managed to climb on the bath without knocking it on the ground. He even circled on it a couple of times before he could find the right spot to make himself cool and comfortable at the same time.
The dog looked so proud sitting on his birdbath.
The dog claimed the birdbath as his bath during the summer and he never looked so happy and proud just chilling there. It is a shame that the birds have to find some other place to cool their wings after a hot flight during the summer, but you can’t blame this German Shepherd for being creative. As this became his favorite cooling spot, it could be impossible not to see him there for the rest of the summer.
The family decided to share this sight with everyone on the internet and plenty sure are happy that they did. Now, it is your turn to share this video with your family and friends so they too could take a look at this adorable and proud doggo who made a bath for himself during this scorching season.
Please SHARE this with your friends and family.
