Backyard Cooling Dog Pool Refills Itself

dogpool.jpg
This backyard Cooling Dog Pool is just the spot for your pet to relax in the water on upcoming hot days. Includes a built-in dog bowl for fresh drinking water (as if you dog knows the difference, or cares, but it's a nice thought.)

To fill, simply attach your garden hose to the connection and turn it on. An adjustable valve and float maintains a constant water level, so you never have to refill the pool. Made of tough, lightweight plastic.

Cooling Dog Pool for dogs up to 90 lbs. And toddlers, too.

Pupsicles -- Peanut Butter Treats for Dogs

popsicle.jpg

Living in a sub-tropical climate, naturally it is usually pretty muggy in our neck of the woods. After the day heats up, and we have worked up a thirst barking at neighbors and hunting geckos, a cool-down treat is in order.

The answer--Pupsicles. Our dogs love peanut butter. They could happily live on it completely. Yes, peanut butter is fattening, but it also contains protein and oils, which are good for dog coats and skin.

Our hurdle is usually the container. Both our girls consider paper a delicacy, so muffin wrappers are downed along with the Pupsicle. We tried the small plastic containers sold in the plastic-ware section of the market, but it is so fun to crack the plastic in our jaws, it wasn't very cost effective.

Pupsicles are a bit like meat loaf, whatever works. But before you add a new ingredient, remember to check that is is not toxic to your dog. Here is a general idea.

Recipe
1.5 cups water
5 - 6 heaping teaspoons natural peanut butter
sugar -- tablespoon is plenty
a few glops of low-fat, plain( NO chocolate) yogurt (optional)
a banana (optional)

Method
Take a tiny bit of PB from the jar and put on spoons on floor to distract dogs away from drooling on your feet. Mix in blender. Pat dogs. Ignore. Consider putting more PB on spoons to distract. Pour Pupsicle liquid into plastic dixie cups, about half-way. Freeze. Serve one daily for snack. Your dog will be your BFF, if not already.

Pet Water Safety

With the vacation-party week of the 4th coming up, summer is now in full swing. Swimming is fabulous fun for many of our pets and a great way for them to cool off while getting some exercise.

dogs-pool-ball-toss.jpg

Water can be hazardous for pets, just as it is for children. Since our pets only communicate through body language, we must stay tuned to their well-being even on those busy days when we have lots going on to distract us. A pet in distress, whether frightened, sick or over-heated, may only send out relatively subtle signals, since to display weakness in the animal world can make them vulnerable to predators.

There are tons of products on the market to protect your pet when around the pool, boat, ocean or lake. Here is a Super Cool Pets roundup of some recent posts featuring products to help keep your pet safe this summer season. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
