Last winter I had bought Delilah a sprinkler but didn't have a chance to use it. We used it for the first time yesterday and she loved it! At one point she picked it up and started running around the yard with it.
She was also very interested in the fire- she just kept staring at the smoke and chasing the ashes. Considering her compulsive disorder, I think that might be something I should discourage, but I was able to call her away from the smoke and have her do other things like chew on a raw bone or do some tricks, so I let her chase the ash for a little bit while my friend was over. And Delilah barked at my friend a little at first, but then settled down really quickly and went back to chewing on her bone and chasing the ashes. She even came to sit by us at one point and didn't react!
Delilah's surgery for her luxating patellas is tomorrow. It was supposed to be last week but there was a miscommunication from the clinic (they had called me to confirm the appointment, but never called to reschedule even though they thought that they had). I'm really nervous but also very hopeful.
