Dog loves cooling off by playing with a garden hose

This is far more entertaining (and refreshing) than 'fetch.'

Dogs love cooling off in the hot summer months just like the rest of us. One dog, however, has managed to turn this simple act into something adorable.

YouTube user machinesnmetal and his wife show their rescue dog jumping with delight at a garden hose and drinking every drop he can get.

“He can do this all day,” machinesnmetal says. “Then he goes and rolls around in the dirt and makes mud.”

While the garden hose is a good idea to keep their dog occupied, it still requires a human to be present at all times. As any dog owner knows, humans do not have the boundless energy that dogs have. If only machinesnmetal had a sprinkler.

Oh, wait. He does.
