There really is nothing like cooling off in your own pool on a warm summer day. Unfortunately, summer—and the hot, humid weather that comes with it—are still at least two months away.

Fed up with the wait, one adorable bulldog decided to take matters into his own paws. 

He solved the problem by bringing his personal pool inside.

“Gus,” the lovable pet of redditor cakebeerandmorebeer, decided that it was the ideal time for the family to have an indoor pool—at least for the four-legged members of its household. So, using his toothy resources, he dragged his tiny plastic pool inside the house.

A GIF of the video made it to the top of Reddit’s r/funny section recently, where comments supporting Gus filled the thread to the brim.

With any other dog, such behavior would merit a trip to the doghouse. But that probably wouldn’t matter to Gus, who would just drag it inside anyway.
