A few years ago when we visited Key West my wife and I, along with my Siberian Huskies, were walking around being tourists when Cosmo decided he needed a change of scenery.

 I had stopped near a fountain looking at something, and suddenly I heard the sound of laughter. I turned toward the sound and saw my Cosmo cooling off in the fountain. He's not supposed to do things like that, but when you need to cool off, you need to cool off.

  Cosmo and Nikki are my service dogs, and Cosmo is a big ham.
