Dante vs. Yellow Jacket

Can You Guess Who Won?

Yup the yellow jacket did. What a nasty creature they are! 
There we were, minding our own business. 


Snapping a few pictures and enjoying the scenery, when boom! Dante started jumping sideways.

It was just thankfully just one bee, and he didn't have much of a reaction other than some swelling.


But guess what I carry in my pack? A bite and sting kit! 



I picked up a couple of these kits because we were moving into a rattlesnake area. And while I know how to use it and have done a few practice runs I have never actually used it.

It worked great!

Dz Dog Dad was surprised that I was able to get suction on Dante over his fur, generally you want to shave the area first. But I definitely got a good seal over the sting, and voila! No more lump on the poor boy.


If your dog gets stung watch them carefully, some dogs are just as allergic as humans are to bees. And a sting in the mouth or throat can constrict breathing and may need a veterinarian trip.

When you gotta go, you gotta go. 
We've been doing tons of hiking, and being an advocate for taking care of the environment we practice "Leave No Trace". 

Leave No Trace - means packing out whatever we pack in. This includes doggy doo, one of my least favorite dog related jobs. But somebody has got to do it! And that is where Frisco comes in handy.

Heat Exhaustion In Dogs

Heat Exhaustion In Dogs.

Dante and Ziva love living in Southern Oregon, the issue we've been having though is temperature. We aren't outside enough to have really adapted yet, so we run fast between air conditioned destinations and from the car to the river.


Recently a friend of mine experienced heat exhaustion with one of her dogs so I thought it would be a good time to address the issue.
