Puppy in a Bucket

Oh my goodness, I have no idea what my crazy dog was thinking here!

We were at the dog park. They had a bucket of water out for the dogs to get a drink. But not Howie. Howie thought it was a Boston terrier sized swimming pool just for him. I only wish I’d caught this video from the beginning, but I grabbed my my phone as soon as I saw what he was doing. It was all I could do to keep from cracking up the entire video!

Have a great weekend!

Haha how cute! We were at a Game Fair at the weekend and they had big paddling pools filled with water for the dogs to jump in & cool off!

When I first saw it, I thought you were going for a spoof on one of those cute baby shots where the baby is swaddled in a bucket! LOL!

Amanda, TOOOO cute. My dogs wouldn’t think to even drink from it, much less have a frolicking good time. Howie certainly is agile — I couldn’t believe he didn’t knock over that bucket. Adorable — thank you for sharing!

ROFL!! Howie certainly looks pleased with his cleverness, if a little squished. My Fred will NOT go in the wading pool at daycare. I think he’s afraid someone might see him in there and decide to give him a bath.

I can’t wait to show this to my family tonight. One of the sweetest things about this is how the second dog (is that Miley?) waits so patiently for her turn and then as soon as he gets out, she tries to get in. LOL. Dogs are so much more smarter than we realize!
