Water-loving dog drags his favorite sprinkler inside to beat the Texas heat [View all]

Baloo is 5 months old, right in midst of the “terrible twos” of puppydom, his owner Cara Wohr tells PEOPLE.

The energetic border collie has a “kind, loving heart and is never mean at all,” but does have a bit of an obsession.

Baloo loves the sprinkler. Living in Lake Dallas, Texas, where summer temperatures often surpass 105 degrees, this obsession makes sense. The issue is when Baloo decided to take his favorite pastime indoors.

Wohr was recently resting in her bedroom reading a magazine. when she heard a “clank, clank, clank.” With several dogs in the house, Wohr wasn’t too worried about the noise until she heard barking.

The owner walked into her family room to discover that Baloo, looking to beat the heat, had come inside the doggy door … and brought the running sprinkler with him.

“I was in a panic on what to do,” Wohr recalls. “My lamp and TV were getting soaked.”
