These Swimming Dachshunds Are Making The Most Of “Hot Dog Summer”

As the temperatures continue to rise, summer is in full swing — and one group of lovable Dachshunds is giving a new meaning to the phrase “the dog days of summer.”

In an adorable video posted to TikTok by user Daneandadoxie on June 25, four cute sausage dogs are shown paddling about in an inflatable pool. Complete with the sun’s rays, these dogs sure are showing the world how to cool down and chill out this summer.

The sweet clip is accompanied by a mashup soundtrack of 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” and the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive.” The dogs wade, paddle, and splash throughout the water, and in traditional sausage dog fashion, wiggle their short little legs through the pool. 

If there was any wonder how to truly relax this summer season, these dogs sure know how to kick it. 

Text across the video reads “Hot Dog Summer,” which is a tribute to Megan Thee Stallion’s hit track “Hot Girl Summer,” as well as to the nickname for the dog breed.

The adorable footage of the Daschunds has since gone viral, having been viewed by over 3 million people. The video has also received over 487,000 likes on TikTok. 

The little inflatable pool is perfect for short-legged dogs and provides the best place for them to cool off in the hot summer heat. If your dog loves the water, it would be a wonderful addition to playtime for them to have a blow-up pool of their very own to wade around in and keep cool.

Besides not wanting them to be uncomfortable, letting a dog get too warm puts them at a higher risk of heatstroke. When a dog’s body temperature exceeds 106° F, this is considered heatstroke. So this summer, taking a dip is the perfect way to help your dog stay cool.

These four Dachshunds have taken the internet by storm, captivating people from all over the world with their cuteness. 

“Oh my gosh the cute bouncing, this is how happy I am in a pool too!” one TikTok user, named Rosie, wrote. “So stinking cute.”

Another user, Fullerton1963, commented on the post about how unique it was to see the little sausage dogs swim about in the pool. 

“I have never seen Dachshunds swim!” they commented. “I am laughing at how cute! Love it! Their own pool!”
