    Good to hear Walter's on the mend. Hopefully he leaves your sprinklers alone too....

    Thank you for sharing this… I agree this is the BEST article that I have read explaining what the heck is going on. Did you do the dips w/Leo or did you go the natural route?!!

    Great news Walter. No more medi-dips. Also, Rogaine will not fix your hair problem and tell mommy to stay away from that stuff as well. Please recall the problem with my hands. As a matter of fact, I overheard a lady tell her kids that soap and water would take care of my problem. I looked at her and said, "no it doesn't."

    I see the plumber is coming this afternoon. That is wonderful; however, be prepared to resuscitate mommy when she gets the bill. Also, make sure you check for any mottos on the side of the plumbers truck like "a good flush beats a full house." I understand the reason the plumber made your house an afternoon appointment is because last night somebody broke into the Clarksville Police Station and stole the only toilet in the building. Right now the cops are anxious to apprehend the perpetrator but they have nothing to go on.

    Walter, to help mommy pay for your shennigans, I suggest you become an evangelist. If you need some lines of what to say...just let me know. "Three bags full."

    That's great news. Give Wallie a great big kiss from me and my boys.

    When we got Blue, my breeder said to use Advantage II two weeks prior to his Rabies shot, and 2 weeks after his rabies shot. She said the rabies vaccine wreaks havoc on their immune system and using Advantage has shown it keeps mange away.
    When I mentioned it to my vet, she never heard of it but said it couldn't hurt so we did it.

    I'm glad your vet said something similar. Every time I've mentioned it to people, they look at me like I have two heads..lol

    Our vets here do not even offer dips. They go straight to ivermectin, either oral or shots. If your pups demodex comes back, don't spend a lot of money on ivermectin at the vet, you can buy it over the counter as Ivomec (on amazon) and administer daily doses by weight (i have a chart if you want). You still need to do skin scrapings at the vet and continue the meds one month past the second clear skin scrape. However, I hope the dips worked and you never have to worry about it again!

    That is so funny… I actually did some research and a LOT of people swear that it keeps mange under control.

    Yeah the plumber just left… $189 which isn't too bad. They actually had to cut another hole in the brick because the IDIOTS that did the plumbing for our house made the hole too big. So when I was trying to screw it back in it didn't catch anything because they had the screws in silicone. Basically that's why Wally pulled it out because it wasn't even attached to anything
