It's time for me to tell the story of the time we lit Sheppe on fire. We'd seen the veterinarian ... We were horrified. Granted she wasn't hurt, but the image of fire in the dog's fur doesn't leave easily. Lia

Oh, that's terrible! (bad grin) Good thing she didn't notice, but how did you plug her nose against the smell of burning hair??

drenching in alcohol and beside itself

You better use garlic dressing.

I've heard that chickens & roosters love ticks, cockroaches and centipedes........almost makes you want one until you wake up at 4:00 a.m. to their noise and go, whoops! (slap forehead), that's why I don't have one!

we had chickens when i was growing up, and my neighbors have them now (well, not the same ones). IME they aren't really that noisy, unless you have dueling roosters. besides, i'm usually up before then, anyway.

Indeed, I have been hounding DH to get us some chickens and make a chicken coup,
but everyone says my dogs will have them for snacks as quick as I get them.
But we do have an area fenced off that was suppose to be our garden but it didn't pan out due to water restrictions or often draughts. So now it just sits there. I still think it would work, but I am probably dreaming.

Is this something new with Frontline - is it losing its effectiveness against ticks? Or is it your the local ... see a tick on the dogs, and that's only if we've been less than diligent about applying it every month.

My experience is that some dogs seem better protected by Frontline than others. I'm guessing it's a matter of differences in the skin characteristics and amount of oil. In general, though, I've had great results with Frontline.

The way it's been explained to me is that since ticks are not insects, they are not as strongly affected by insecticides, that is, substances designed primarily to kill insects. Amitraz kills ticks. It is available in collar form under the names Ticktrol and Preventic. If your dogs don't bite their collars off, or chew/lick each others, these can be an effective solution.

Btw, anybody assaulted by fleas? I once did a little poll of people whom fleas bite, and they all had good teeth. Dental problems, no fleas.

Where did you find people in Southern California with bad teeth? When I lived in New Orleans, everyone who had a dog or a cat got bitten by fleas, variations in dental hygiene notwithstanding.
