Cool-it Bandana®

Mommy got Preston a very stylish Cool-it Bandana, made with polymer crystals that can absorb heat and keep Preston cool.

“Are yoou cool, Preston?”
06/25/2009 update: We did not realize that the bandada was supposed to be soaked in the water (and placed in the fridge) before use. We found that out when washing it. haha! Should have read the instruction first! It does work!
Instructions: “Completely soak entire bandana in water for 15-30 minutes. The bandana will swell as it absorbs water to keep your pet cool for hours. To extend cooling time soak bandana and refrigerate before using. Air dry completely after using. ”

If Cool-it Bandana didn’t work, this would definitely make Preston feel better. Mommy took Preston to The Counter and built a burger for Preston and Mommy. She kept the caramelized onion (yum!) to herself, but made it up to Preston with the sweet potato fries.

    You look sooo majestic in that 1st picture. I hope that bandanna did keep you cool. It’s too small for me. I rather be drenched in cool water anytime! Holly Mother of Dog! That burger is monstrous!!! Did your mom manage to finish all by herself or did she need any help?

  3. Boy Preston! You are one lucky puggle! You are so handsome showing off your new cool-it bandana! If that burger was in front of me, I don’t think my mommy would’ve had time to take a picture….I would have devoured it immediately! hehehe

    Blue is definitly your color! I think it’s wonderful that you get to go off with your Mommy! My Mommy & Daddy are going to put me in obedience school & then I’ll get to go off with them more! Preston, has your Mommy & Daddy ever thought about writing a book on training? To share all the secrets of all the tricks you know, your so smart! I know my Mommy would buy one if they came out with a book!

  5. Hi Preston!

    You are a Super Model Puggle! Have you considered being the Spokes Puggle for the Cool It Collar? They need to pay you for looking so good in it!

    Oh my doG…that Burger looked devine! I bet it was super yummy. We have a place that serves Sweet Potato Fries here…but I’ve never had it!

    Hi Preston!
    Your bandana is super nice! And that hamburger, wow, I want some! And so does Mom!
    Love Clover xo
    P.S. Did your package arrive yet? I hope it comes soon. Last time I sent something to California it took TWO MONTHS! I hope yours doesn’t take that long…

    Not only do you look stylish in your bandana, you look very handsome as well! That burger looks so yummy! Are those eggs I see? How do you stop yourself from gobbling it up?! I’m glad you were allowed to sit on a chair because some places in the Bay Area don’t let doggies sit on the chairs outside. So rude! Thanks for sharing your dining experience!

  8. That burger looks amazing, Preston! I’m super jealous!

  14. […] Preston went to a special puggle meetup today. Animal Planet’s DOG101 is going to feature “Puggles” in their upcoming season. The camera crew was filming today’s puggle meetup in Boston. There were at least 40 puggles showing up for a fun day and the possibility of being on TV. Luckily, Mommy put Preston’s “Cool-it” bandana on him; otherwise, he could have been easily lost in the crowd. Preston was not shy about getting attention. He was the only puggle that “spoke” to the camera. It was such a fun day for Preston (Mommy and Daddy too!). […]
