    I throw ice cubes in the pool to get mine in. Once they are in there, they love it. I did look at cooling vests before the summer started here and I just didn't find one that was a decent price that looked like it would work. If you get one, let us know how you like it.

    I bought a cooling vest..and had to use it when we arrived home on a 100 degree plus day and our a/c was broken! I was in such a panic and like a dweeb I didn't have it in the fridge and ready to go..so it only cooled for 15 minutes..it helped a lot. It has little beads in it that swell up when soaked in water..then you put in fridge for I think they recommend 30 minutes. Lasts for 5 hours. And does stay relatively cool.I only needed it for about 2 hours..but having that and a fan made Jake comfortable. Now I keep it cool and ready to go! Lesson learned..it was about $25..and same material used by soldiers in middle east.

    The way to get a bulldog into the pool when he hates it? Get in first and TRY and keep him out. Reverse psychology. It sometimes works.

    @hopus, i too have the same cooling vests that @JAKEISGREAT has. Yes, they work great. I keep mine in the fridge just in case i need to throw them on the boys. It's supposed to get in triple digits here later this week so we may need to wear them soon.
