Veronica LOVES sprinklers!! Problem with hoses is she can easily wet US down with them. You literally cannot take out a hose for yard work (as my poor hubby was trying to do) because Veronica will "attack" the hose non-stop; even if you soak her with it..and unfortunately in the process you get soaked too!! I mean you CANNOT make her go away! Blast her right in the face and she's like "Oh yeah, THAT's what I'm takin' about; BRING IT ON"!!!!! Crazy dog.
