The businessman shared an intimate photo of his wife as she lounged in an outdoor bath alongside one of the family's many dogs, Mable. The photo didn't show much of his wife's outfit, but her gorgeous blonde hair glistened in the shade as she enjoyed the cooling dip, and Mable certainly looked happy to be out of the sun's rays.

Other pet lovers also shared their own advice, as one penned: "Also, do not walk your dog on pavement (streets) when it's hot. If it would burn your bare feet, it would burn their paws."

And another commented: "My girls love a fan or 2 on them. Plus they have a cooling mat each and I've always done the wet towel for my Tess cuz in the heat she gets all wobbly and shaky. It's very scary for her and me."
