Summer Fun

I've been pretty busy the past couple of weeks, but yesterday I finally got some time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather!  I went Stand Up Paddle Boarding for the first time with one of my friends, and didn't even fall off!  And then we had a fire at my house in my new fire pit and I got to spend some time with Delilah.

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.


  1. Your sprinkler looks like lots of fun, Delilah! My paws are crossed for you and hugs for your mom!

    Oh these entertainments are such fun, eh Delilah?! Well done for being (mostly) relaxed... and sending lots of POTP for your surgery. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Best of luck for the braves girl and her surgery.

  4. Delilah is really coming along. That's great that she settled down quickly after barking at your friend. I can tell she is feeling more secure. She is so cute with the sprinkler. Good luck with the surgery little Delilah!

  5. What fun times! That sprinkler looks like a great way to cool off. Crossed paws and prayers for your upcoming surgery!
