Our gal LOVES the hose! I've had several dogs before and none ever seem interested in the hose and some were downright scared of it. I noticed in the one months photo contest that there were several pictures of GSDs leaping to get at the hose spray and thought I'd ask: Is this part of the prey drive of the dogs? Just curious more than anything else. She also LOVES biting at snow and the shovel while i'm trying to work.
