Oh, forgot to add, I use shirts that have built in repellent. They also work great.

I use Only Naturals, Natural Defense Spray. It's made with Neem Oil and I've been using it for a number of years.
I ran out for a while this year and my Diva paid the price with a nasty bite from a spider.
She ran a 104.5 temp and her face blew up,she was covered in a deep red rash.
A visit to the vet for a shot of Dex and was on pred. for 10 days.
I made sure I had ordered the spray as it works for all kinds of creepy ,crawlies.

Hi Michelle,
Did you get in touch with Kelli to let her know about Lenny?
Sorry to hear you're having issues.
Rocky is doing great now, no more cancer.
Lenny as you know is Rocky's older brother.

Looks like he could have Avongara in him. There are many in NY and it is a possibility.

Hi

My Diva is a service dog and has been for 5 years now. She is very good at what she does and is my lifeline. I have trained her in a unique way because of her size. She blocks by jumping on me to put distance between a person that comes into my personal space. She also wakes me up from night terrors by climbing onto my chest. I'm in good paws with my faithful Diva by my side.
I'm also in the process of training my full African as an alternate,he is 3/4 of the way in his training.

It's normal, I even had a bitch that was bred on day 31 and she had a litter of five.

When was the last rabies vaccine ?
My two Avongaras both developed itchy rashes on there feet,legs three days after there rabies vaccine. There is a connection no matter what the vet says.
Look up the rabies challenge fund and read what it says.
They will be getting exemptions from now on.
These reactions can be seen many months and sometimes years after the vaccination.

Looks like basenji to me. Could have Avongara in her.
The Avongaras do look different, I have two and to look at them
they don't look like my domestics.
The Avongaras are some of the most sweetest of our basenjis.
After 41 years of breeding,showing,racing,etc I do think I know
basenji temperament.
At least that is my opinion .

One of my seniors,(16 +) has Cushings and with it the constant drinking,etc.
I buy the #4 size baby diapers and then have cloth doggie diapers to but over
them. She doesn't mind them and even lets me know when she needs to be
changed.
When my Joshua was alive he also wore diapers and he was find with it.
