Golden retriever beats the heat by cooling off in busy public water fountain
The recent heatwave has seen us all consider putting a swimming costume on and sitting in the kids paddling pool with an ice lolly – but one dog has shown us all how it should be done.
TikTok user @palmerchlo shared a hilarious video of a dog at Kings Cross, in London, cooling off in the Granary Square fountains.
The video has since had over a million views and more than 192,000 likes.
The golden retriever can be seen plodding through the 1,080 water jets chomping at the water spurting from each one.
Users of the video sharing app appreciated the pup’s dedication to staying hydrated in the hot weather.
One comment said: “He’s just trying to make sure none of the water is without a chomp.”
Another added: “Must taste every single one!”
