Fact: After dogs go for a swim or take a bath, they look incredibly cute. Sure, they might not smell so great after wading in a pond, and it’s never fun to be near a dog when he shakes. But a canine’s fluffy (or totally flat) wet coat and happy expression after a day of playing fetch in the pool make it all worth it.

Without further ado, here are 10 delightful dogs drenched in water after swimming in the pool, going to the beach or simply sitting in buckets of water.

Abby the Poodle-German Shepherd mix must’ve read our guide to having the best summer ever, because she looks like she’s having the time of her life in the water.

Logan the Border Collie is having buckets of fun. (Sorry, we had to.)

He might be soaked, but Benito the Labrador Retriever looks incredibly huggable after his first swim in the pool.

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring the greatest joy. Kristee the Pomeranian can hardly contain herself when her owners turn on the hose.

Sprinklers and hoses are for amateurs. Sake the Labrador Retriever thinks outside the box and goes for the Slip'N Slide.

Jake the Wheaten Terrier-Poodle mix takes a giant leap into the ocean. Do you think his tail helped him jump so high?

Sometimes you have to be like Hailstorm the Yorkie and take bath time into your own hands (paws?).

Everyone should take a page out of Kaia the Brussels Griffon-Chow mix’s book and spend the rest of the summer in the cooling comforts of a kiddie pool.

Hurley the Australian Shepherd-Border Collie mix is covered in salt water and sand — and proud of it!

Harley, a Golden Retriever mix, perfectly demonstrates what every wet dog does after emerging from the water: shake!
