Hunting Scent Comes Back

Cancer won't stop a Bird dog!When we first tested her in the fall--she was not scent pointing--as she was so sick from Ehrlichia and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Once the diseases get under control--the brain damage subsides and their (click here to learn more about this) olfacotory senses return. I have no doubt so many hunting dogs are abandonded because they are sick with tick borne illnesses and stop hunting because they are too ill. Opehlia is still fighting both of hers and post surgery--her RMSF infection got worse...But THIS was a good day. She has been back on her antibiotics the past few days.
