Ticks in Mt. Warning ????

Postby Rosco1 » Thu Sep 09, 2010 1:48 pm

Poodle....Seeing that you are from that area, Are ''Ticks'' considered a ''Major Concern''......???
We will be giving Bailie a Booster 3 days before we go....Is there anything else that we should be aware of ???

Cheers

Rosco

Can`t ever remember anyone mentioning ticks BUT i didn`t have animals then. It is bushy and as you know a national park,BIIIGGGGG carpet snakes i remember. I have a spray that i spray on the dogs...work hasn`t ok-ed my days yet, best get on to them tomorrow. It is still quite cold at night down there so i don`t imagine too many creepy crawleys have come to life yet.

Hmmmm...You said ''SNAKES''......TO A KIWI .....OMG
They terrify me and of coarse, Bailie hasn't had the dis-pleasure of being introduced to one yet.....We are afraid that she will think that they are a game and start trying to play with one.....She was so funny this afternoon....We were watching her play with a grass hopper....BIG one to on the lawn.
Lets hope it does stay cool and they remain in hibonation.

Rosco, I've walked a few dogs that I thought would hunt anything that moved in areas where there were quite a lot of snakes. I was worried my own dog (large-ish ridgeback-wolfhound cross) would try to attack them, but I was especially worried about my friend's Jack Russel. But I have seen them both encounter snakes and even though they were a tad curious they obviously knew they were danger and backed right off.

Thanks for the ''sorta'' reassurance Linv....Bailies such an intelligent dawg (she can almost read the paper...lol).....BUT , boy can she be 'dumb' sometimes as well.....She doesn't really have a bad bone in her body which is what concerns us if she ever comes across 'danger'...she will think its a game...her favorite is chasing the ball ...day in...day out.

Will keep her on a pretty tight reign for this trip,,I'd be in BIG trouble if anything happened to her.
