So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Swingle and Duck poo!

The Villains!

I think Duck poo is the smelliest and worst thing for a dog to roll in, worse than fox or slurry! On the day of her time for a top up of Frontline (tick and flea stuff put on her neck), I though, aw, I’ll take her for a walk with swims as she shouldn’t get wet for two days after.

Hence the duck poo, rolled in at length and gloriously while hiding in the undergrowth. Result a much loathed bath for her, not me, with shampoo when we got home. Then when dried -treated.

So what does she do when Dave took her for an afternoon stroll?  Straight in the farmer’s forbidden pond, no doubt killing all the fish. Smells returns, so another bath avoiding what was left of the Frontline. That took the smile of the swine’s face! So did the treatment take effect? I don’t know, fortunately now the hay fields are mostly cut, she wont get so many ticks, maybe I’ll have to get a insecticidal collar for her……………………
