    Poor dogs and their parents - well understand you get so frightened :rolleyes2:

    It has always been my biggest fear of these stinging insects
    -think if the dog was stung in the mouth and are allergic.

    Minnie has been the easiest - she knows she should not snap at wasps or bumblebees.
    - she can spend so much time -lying in the grass looking at the bumblebees which collects Nectar in clover :yes:
    - but a quick wasp, it has gone well so far.

    My first GDS - was really bad - she killed them with a certain trick
    - where she clasped her front teeth and at the same time a quick twist with her head
    - after this, they lay dead on earth :eek2: I hated this !!!!

    Crazy girl, why on earth did she do that. Or shouldn't I ask - "it was there so I ate it"

    Tully once got bitten on her face and turned into a Chipmunk. I have never seen anything like it, she literally had no nose. If I wasn't in such a panic to get her to the vet I'd have taken a photo. Luckily I got a phenergan into her on the way the way there. And very lucky it was her face and not her mouth she was bitten. Vet thinks it was a bull ant.

    Not sure he enjoyed it as there was just puncture holes LOL However with Sca it was this could be food then if not he spit it out. With Angus it is this could be Angus's on just about anything. In a rare case Spitfire is the good one and basically leaves stuff alone LOL

    Cara - or she may have "Sheltie trained" me :lol::lol:

    As you know, I always have my puppies / dogs with me when I'm home.
    - I never close them away - even though I sometimes want to do it :rolleyes2:
    therefore, they learn the normal behavior, incl very quickly be toilet trained

    The first thing I teach my dogs as soon as they get home is
    - come when I call and drop things when I ask for it, always as a play and with joy and reward.

    Never had a dog like Minnie who would eat anything when we went for a walk
    - everything from cigarette butts and --- you mention it :eek2:

    It was really a trial for me to keep my patience and to be a good and loving mom :uhoh:,
    but we managed to turn it around - so that she was so proud when she found something and let it lie
    - she looked so proud at me for praise and a reward :yes:

    She's really so sweet :hugs
    -when she lies in the grass -and looking at the bumble bees, you can see her thinking "what in the world do they do"

    (It is among other things therefore I only have one dog, though it really is tempting to get a little sibling to Minnie)

    Lucy ate a sock two weeks ago... $500 later and she was home from a long day at the vet:mad1:

    she wasn't even 4 months old yet and we're still trying to figure out how she downed the whole thing in half a second before we could grab it:gaah

    That is just awful!!

    I am so glad she is home now and they could remove the sock without further complicates!

    You certainly have your hands full with Lucy!

    I hope this is the last time she gets into trouble!

    That would have scared the crap out of me!
