Woman left laughing after ‘bargain’ dog padding pool arrives a lot smaller than expected

Things have been hot again, but if you’ve been feeling warm, spare a thought for our four-legged friends.

There are many ways to keep canines cool in the heat – including getting them a pet paddling pool.

This idea came to Bethany Vawter Sweatt, from Fort Mill, South Carolina, who decided to treat her seven year-old golden retriever, Turbo, to a dog pool.

However, the purchase didn’t turn out as planned.

The 31-year-old was left bitterly disappointed when the $13 (£10) dog pool – available from Lidl and Amazon – turned out to be a lot smaller than it looked in the pictures.

Admittedly, Bethany says she forgot to check the dimensions when she bought the item. So when Turbo got into the pool, it was incredibly small for him.

In other words, cue the hilarious photos of an unimpressed Turbo lounging in the mini pool.

Bethany also filmed a video explaining her mistake, which simply pans to Turbo chilling in the tiny set-up.

‘I didn’t pay that close attention to the dimensions, apparently,’ she admits.

The stay-at-home mum then decided to post the hysterical fail on TikTok, where people have also found the funny side, and her video has received more than five million views.

She says: ‘The photo was a little deceiving.’

But the good news is that Turbo now has a much bigger pool to make up for it.
