Posted on

It's already August, but don't reach for that pumpkin spice latte just yet. Here are 18 reasons why we're loving every minute of the dog days of summer!

1. Summer days are perfect for achieving that golden tan.

This pup may need a few more months to get that perfect glow.

2. Summer heat brings cool treats!

3. Obviously, bubbles > snow.

So many bubbles, so hard to catch them all!

Let's be honest: the bubbles are beautiful, but this floof probably prefers the snow.

4. We're ALL about that beach life.

You can literally see this dog begging for another walk along the beach.

5. Plus, there's nothing like a good roll on the ground!

6. Wet Hair, Don't Care.

There's no better way for a floof to cool off!

Sprinklers are SO much more fun than a bath!

7. Think of all of the new activities you can try during the summer!

PSA for the neighborhood squirrels: this pup learned how to climb trees.

Hiking is much easier with four paws.

8. Drinking from the hose in the fall? Not NEARLY as satisfying.

9. Let's be honest, the accessories are SO much better in the summer.

Summer is the perfect time to channel your inner BBQ dad.

Floating with friends is double the fun!

11. Farms have the BEST smells during the summer.

Who's a good boy? (Spoiler alert: this dog.)

Instagram: @dcdonniedog

This pup's pineapple game is on point!

Don't worry, this dog is 21... in dog years.

13. Playing outside in the summer is a BALL!

14. Summer is made for chilling with your friends by your side.

Instagram: @simba

The floof-iest friends of all time.

15. Suns out, tongues out!

16. Going for a summer run? Yes please!

17. Poolside = definitely beats being inside.

Don't tell this pup to get out of the water!

Who needs friends when you have a dog?

18. And nothing's more beautiful than a summer sunset.
