PSA: Paddling pools with inbuilt sprinklers designed especially for dogs are now a thing.
It’s no secret that the UK is currently in the grips of a much-needed heatwave – the bank holiday weekend saw temperatures soar to highs of 24.5 degrees celsius, and it isn’t set to cool down anytime soon.
Yet while most of us Brits revelled in this rare spell of sunshine – beer gardens and local parks were busier than ever over the weekend – our poor dogs weren’t as appreciative.
Admittedly, most dogs enjoy an hour or so of basking in the sun, but it’s no secret that they take a lot longer to cool down then their owners do.
So a helping hand is often required, mainly in the form of a refreshing bowl of cold water or a tactical spray of the gardening hose.
And now, there’s a product that will do just that.
Introducing the Dog Fountain Splash Mat – an inflatable paddling pool with sprinklers attached so your fur baby can stay cool while having hours of summer fun.
The fountain has been made a reality by dog retailer, Big Ralph, which offers a whole range of dog-friendly products such as dog safety car seats, dog cooling vests and even memory foam dog sofas.
And as for their latest product, the fountain mat is perfect for every dog breed out there – measuring in at 150cm in diameter, pets of any size can enjoy it.
Another bonus is that each fountain mat is environmentally friendly and completely safe for your pup, big or small.
And while it usually costs £50.99 to get your hands on, you can now bag it for half that price at just £25.99. Bargain!
Visit the Big Ralph website to buy one for your own pet.
Aldi is now selling a ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin and it looks so good
Get down to your local Aldi immediately
Aldi has knocked it out of the park this week with the launch of their ‘churros with chocolate’ flavoured gin.
Yep, it’s the churros and gin combo you never knew you needed.
Now, there’s no disputing the fact that the combination of churros and melted chocolate is definitely one of the more elite desserts out there – but have you ever envisioned chocolate churros whipped up into an alcoholic treat?
Probably not – but, as always, Aldi is on hand to make your chocolatey-boozy dreams come true.
The Churros with Chocolate Gin Liqueur, made by The Infusionist and stocked by Aldi, was brought to the attention of the internet by the food blogging Instagram account, Kevs Snack Reviews.
Of course, Instagram users were very impressed by the new boozy offering, with one writing: “Need to get it for the next cocktail night,” and another tagging their friend while noting: “We need to get our hands on this one.”
Admittedly, this gin may be a little bit sweet for some, but picture it in a gin espresso martini or as a twist on a pornstar martini.
I’ve convinced you, haven’t I?
Priced at £7.99 the chocolate churros gin liqueur is available both online and in stores, joining the likes of Lemon Drizzle Cake gin liqueur, Raspberry Jam Donut gin liqueur, and Salted Caramel Cupcake gin liqueur.
