could anyone post this on their Facebook, or whatever they have for media. It is for Lucy (my beagle) She is totally blind from cataracts in both eyes. She can get surgery, but, it cost $1000.00 per eye. Even if I got one eye done, it is better than nothing at all.

We mostly think big animals for firehose enrichment but littler ones can use them just as they are

Ooh. That's something to look into for sure. I didn't even know that you could get used fire hoses, let alone make things out of them! Iguanas and other lizards would probably really like that as well.

Look for "scrap hose" for sale. It's used hose that leaks so it's dirt cheap compared to new hose or even used that still holds water.

I have 100 feet of scrap hose here to make a hammock for Scully if I ever get around to it. It only cost $35.

Loom for weaving firehose hammocks http://gorillassp.org/Forms/Firehose_loom.pdf
Tighter weave and a little easier for the weaver than handweaving.

Weave a heart instead of a ball or square http://enrichment.org/articles/fire-hose-hearts/
