This puppy really knows how to enjoy the dog days of summer!

Nine-month-old Crown Heights mutt Callie had the time of her short life frolicking in the fountain outside the Brooklyn Museum on Thursday, beating the heat as temperatures soared into the 90s.

Callie insists on cooling her jets in the water feature every day, her owner said, and he is powerless to stop the 11-pound pooch.

“She pulls us all the way from our house to there just so she can attack the water,” said owner Daivd Katz, who adopted Callie from a shelter in Kentucky. “If I didn’t take her she would give me the stink eye all day.”

The soggy doggy spent around 15–20 minutes performing aqua-batics for crowds at the Eastern Parkway gallery before drying herself by rolling about on a patch of grass nearby, according to Katz.

“She was putting on a show for everybody,” he said. “She’s a 9-month-old puppy — whatever she does is a show.”

The museum fountain is really the only place for hot dogs to splash about in the neighborhood this summer, Katz said, as Prospect Park’s swimming holes are all closed and the big fountain in that park is only for humans.
