Today Renn and I were having a good day. We were having an extra play session outdoors this morning and his feet and lower furnishings were black with dirt. So I got out the hose and shampoo . All was going well then he started to act up being really wild and I yelled at him, made him listen and sit still for me and I did his front feet but decided not to press it with his rear feet as I had gotten him to a better mind. And when I walked back onto the patio I felt it...Fire ant bites on my ankles and arms..then I looked at him sure enough there were in his fur. I apologized profusely as I pulled the critters from his fur, then brought him inside up on the grooming table and I must have gotten a dozen more off him. Poor baby he was getting bit while I said..why are you acting like this, you like water you have had baths at the groomer, oh is she bathing you? why why....now I know ..meanwhile out came the ortho fire ant killer after we found the mound hidden under a bush not far from where we were. My poor baby, however he is now recovered and doesn't seem to have any issue .
