He just goes and stands in front of the sprinkler at the park. Works great! Cools him down for the rest of our walk! Bentley on the other hand is not quite at bright at Bosco. He is kind of a prissy dog and hates getting wet! So he will not of his own free will get wet to cool off. So I have to drag him back and forth in front of it a few times till he's sufficiently wet! He actually hates it so much that if we are walking on the sidewalk and the sprinklers come on where we are he tries to run away! Poor little guy just doesn't get that it's for his own good! It's like the sprinklers scare him!
Ha ha speaking of scare.............so my big strong Bosco is pretty much a scardy cat! He is so scared of loud noises. Well the other morning we were walking and it was trash day. ( I never really like walking on trash day, it always seems like the dogs go on the opposite side of the trash cans as I do!) Well we were walking one direction down the street. Then the garbage truck turned down the same street and was headed toward us. Bosco freaked out! I have never seen him do that before but it was like he was fearing for his life. At first he backed into the corner of the garage we were near, but that was not going to work. I had thought we'll just stay put right here, in between houses and let the garbage truck pass us. Bosco had another idea! After he decided the corner was not going to protect him he took off!! Now I tried to get him to at least walk, but that was not going to happen. So I'm sure the garbage man got a good laugh as we RAN away!! Bosco dragging me behind him, booking it out of there! I was laughing as I'm trying to imagine how we much look from the view in the truck. The three of us running away! Had to have been too funny! But poor Bosco was so scared, by time we got around the corner he was shaking! I guess I know for next time, try to avoid the garbage truck!!!
