We all have our ways of cooling down during the hot, humid summer months.
The weather in the United Kingdom can be uncharacteristically sweltering at times, so people (and pets!) are always looking for new ways to beat the heat. British Instagram celebrity Jude the French bulldog was no exception, so when his owner bought him a brand-new kiddie pool for their backyard he was more than a little bit excited.
Jude is a gorgeous silver and white Frenchie who boasts almost 30,000 fans on Instagram. He’s appeared in movies and ads, but when he’s not working he’s just a regular dog who loves to snuggle with his owners. On this particularly hot summer day, his owner introduced him to the new paddling pool she’d purchased for him, and his reaction is so adorable the video is going viral with 1.5 million views!
As soon as the video starts you can tell Jude is excited. He’s panting eagerly at his owner’s feet, and his whole body seems tense with unspent energy. Sure enough, as soon as his mom tells him to go get in his new pool Jude takes off like a shot and zooms all around the pool before jumping in so fast he barely even gets his feet wet. He then bounds out again and does another lap or two before finally getting in for real.
