    LOL 'scovies are my favorite breed of duck...they are super-sweet, very hardy, QUIET and funny!

    Cash is my LGD and he wouldn't hurt anything except bees & coyotes!

    my dogs eat bees - they hate bumble bees and will go crazy to catch them - doesn't seem to bother them except a sting in the cheek but obviously mine aren't allergic.

    Scovies are so cute - my 4 I have left are getting big and are little adolescents now and not babies. *sigh* I want more babies - lol. I guess I have to settle for chickies [​IMG]

    A few years ago, we had him locked in the kennel during our wedding and we did not realize there was a wasp's nest the railroad tie next to the kennel. Brodee (the Borzoi) managed to climb out but poor Cash couldn't. When we got home, his head/face was so swollen he looked like a pot belly pig! He could barely breathe and we had to give him Benadryl. Ever since, if you say the word "Bees" or you make a BUZZZZZZ sound, he flips out. It's like he's got PTSD!

    Quote:They just take forever, though! I was going to give her a few more days and then I was going to throw those out. I gave her 10 eggs and the other two pipped but died in the shell.
