Taricha is sporting her new Ruffwear Swamp Cooler vest. The only downfall we have found is that it only comes in this awful ice blue, which seems to attract every piece of colored dirt. But onto the good stuff.
Taricha's always had a rough time with the heat. Any day with sunshine and above 80 degrees, she's panting hard, tongue loling and chest heaving. Impossible to get her to do anything productive so all she ends up doing is sitting around the house complaining at me that she's bored.
This vest is extremely simple to use, simply wet it with water, wring it out and wear. A single soak lasts a few hours. It fits well and seems well made (love the buckles!).
We're never going anywhere without this MAGICAL item again!
