    DefaultMeet Dixie

    I wanted you all to meet my black lab Dixie. She came from a man that kept his labradors for bird hunting. Dixie's Mom and Dad were registered but the papers were lost on the Mom so Dixie couldn't be registered. Dixie knows how to sit, lay down, get up (on the couch, bed, in the car, etc.), get down, come, give me a paw and kiss, scratch the door to come in, and she learned on her own how to open doors. She was born on December 11 (I think. The guy and his wife were arguing about the date.... so who knows. She was born in December though) so she is now nine months. I'll try to post pics later.

    I had a question about homemade flea repellants. Do you have any that work?

    Thank you Rushpuppy.

    I can't download the pictures because they're too big. Does anyone know how to change the picture from MB to KB?

    Welcome! We look forward to seeing pictures of her. There should be some information on the board about posting pictures. Most people use Photobucket.

    I haven't found any homemade flea repelants that work. We bought Raid Flea in the purple can. It woked pretty good. We sprayed about 10 days ago, and just yesterday started seeing a couple here and there. The critters probably hatched out, so I plan to spray again. I was told that flea bombs don't work because they fog upwards and fleas live in the lower 24 inches in your house. Sophie is super allergic to them, and our weather has been a perfect flea breeding ground! We declared war on the dang things, so far won some battles but the war is still going on!!

    Your pup sounds wonderful! We don't usually have fleas where I live but last summer I fostered a dog right out of the shelter and unknown to me she was loaded with fleas. All four of my dogs had to be treated. I don't remember what they were treated with as I took them down to the vet. It was a very expensive foster lesson for me!
