A north Texas dog has gone viral after finding an interesting way to tackle the record-breaking heat here in the Lone Star State. The dog’s owner, Cara Wohr, told nbcwashington.com that she was in her bedroom reading a book last week when she heard her dog start barking, following a loud noise that came from the living room of her Lake Dallas home. She immediately went to see what all the ruckus was and stood there completely amazed. Baloo, her 5-month-old Border Collie, had ventured out on the lawn and decided to drag the running sprinkler into the house through his doggie door, quickly soaking everything in the process.

Wohr explained that Baloo can be a bit mischievous, but generally just loves to play in the sprinkler on the lawn. This time he took the fun too far. Before taking the sprinkler back out and cleaning up the mess, Wohr took a picture of Baloo playing with the water indoors and posted it on Facebook. The caption read, “That moment when your puppy drags the sprinkler through the doggie door. Good thing I was wearing waterproof mascara.”

Shortly thereafter, the post went viral. Ten days later, Wohr’s picture of Baloo and the sprinkler had been shared over 127K times and had more than 24K likes, with at least 11K comments. “I’m overwhelmed. When I first posted it, I thought I’d get 100 likes,” she explained. “Now, I’ve had people from Uptown to Germany talking about this with me!” Wohr told local media she named Baloo after the mischievous bear in the Disney version of “The Jungle Book.”
