Do you remember when the rapper Chet Hanx (son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson) weirded everybody out on the Internet when he declared through song that it’s going to be a ‘White Boy Summer’ sometime last year? We don’t want to get all political here, but we asked everyone and the consensus is out: Wet Dog Summer is clearly better! 

So here’s a video of very good dogs taking a break out of the scorching summer heat by enjoying an afternoon swim at the lake. Watch as these lovable canines go through all sorts of games and pranks under the sun until they pass out from having too much fun. They even brought a beach umbrella, mats, and even a radio. See what we mean? Try again next time, Chet!
