There’s nothing better than spending a day at the lake, enjoying the fresh air and the sunshine with their friends. Well, actually, I lied, there is something better — spend the day at the lake with your dog.

But as every wise and responsible dog-parent knows, it’s really best for your four-legged friend to have a life jacket on, even if he’s an expert swimmer with years of experience. Why? Beause dogs get tired, just like humans. Beyond that, accidents can and do happen and you never know when your dog will need to fend for himself.

Life jackets also often make it easy to seamlessly pull your dog out of the water with an attached handle or a harness.

Good news, dog lovers: Now you can outfit your pooch in style with a life jacket that looks like a mermaid. It’s even more adorable than you might imagine:
