    I did, and surprisingly enough, they are different for different spiders. I suppose it depends on the venom. Either way, his behavior never changed. The lucky little snot must have chanelled the spirit of Hooch and lathered up a protective layer of drewl... lol

    We have black widows around our backyard too and I fear the dog getting into them. The venom could be fatal to a small dog so BE CAREFUL BIGGIE!

    (and let me know if you find an effective way to get rid of them!)
    That was my concern, for such a small puppy with such a high metabolism... whew, I was scared for him!
    There is actually black widow specific poison that you can get. I'll let you know once I pick one. I had to use it before when volunteering at a dog rescue in Texas once.

    His slobber must have stunned it

    Now go retrieve your post, have a strong cup of coffee with heaps of sugar and BREATH!!

    I though have never been soo glad that I live in boring old England
    No poisonous spiders here No! No! No!
    Big hairy house spiders that move fast and jump at me and chase me round the house
    Or lurk in the bathtub or under the sheets hiding and waiting to pounce at me
    But no nasty poison

    Oh and if at all possible I love Biggie more now than before that picture of him snuggled with another dog (introductions please) is precious
    That is my best friends Lab named Iris! She's a sweetie pie and eventually gave in to Biggie's persistant demand of snuggle time.

    Oh my gosh I agree his slobber must have just been too much for that ferocious spider. I can picture it the way they look as I am trying to drown them when I see them. Thankfully he did NOT get bit my gosh! There is nothing worse than making a parent worry. Yes spray spray and spray again!

    Wow that is so scary ... and I was freaking out when Daddy came into the house a few days ago with a wasp still alive and kicking in his mouth!! I have to agree that bulldog drool must have super powers - enough to immobilize any creepy crawly on contact!!
