    Default Just Curious

    Happy Monday All,

    A few days ago, I noticed a couple bumps on Ellie's upper inner back thigh, nothing major, and decided to keep an eye on it, it has gotten better, but I can't see to put my finger on what it was, other than maybe a bee sting, as when we go out to potty recently she we sometimes stop in the doorway, and not go out, or will avoid the grass at all cost till she sees fit....

    If it was a sting, wouldn't she have had more of a reaction??

    Just a curious mind... as usual


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    Maybe an ant bite.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    omg! I don't know what 'got' hank once, but he too got bit by something, leaped in the air and ran, and didnt go back out on the grass willingly for a bit. I still don't know what it was but this sounded so familiar. He didnt have a reaction, and I figure it was some sort of ant, but really don't know... Poor kids, they are so sensitive about stuff. Don't do 'pain' well do they

    This sometimes happens to Cheli... I think it is either the grass or some type of insect bite

    Tank often has red and elevated spots on his inner side of thighs, just after walk, and I think it can be insects, or some allergenic grass, or that stuff they spray on grass, pesticides etc. But usually it goes away in couple of hours. But nothing prevents him from pooping in the grass, what means that he loves to pick up the tallest piece of grass to place his...mmm...presents! And then I have to thoroughly scratch them from thick tall grass

    I've never heard of ants biting being a problem here in Canada, would it be a problem in Pennsylvania?

    Small forest ants that live in moderate climate like Canada, don't really bite, they pee on you with Formic acid and it burns, it is not dangerous and even good for you ( used to be a kind of irritation therapy for joint pain in old times).

    My dogs get poison ivy-so much of it here. Martha won't go out once it gets dark, unless I put a leash on her. She is still worrying about fireworks!
