It's a challenge to keep life interesting for a puppy when there are no other dogs in the house. Bonnie is our only dog and I'm always trying to find fun things for her to do. Dogs can get bored sitting out in the yard by themselves. We go to parks and we take her all over town, but there is still a lot of time when she is home and I want her to have fun things to do here.

One thing that Bonnie has always enjoyed is the water from sprinklers and hoses. If I turn on the sprayer, she runs and jumps in it, just like young a young child running through a sprinkler. It's good exercise and it uses stored up energy. Bonnie even loves to get dried off with a towel afterward. I have a lot of fun watching her play, too!
