    When certain foods are cooked we get flys in the house. Some how the

    annoying bugs are getting in. We thought we had it licked when we had some screen

    material added to two attic vents. They apparently are still getting in although in

    fewer numbers. I also put fly paper in the attic.


    Tonight four of the SOBs got in and they drive me nuts till I hunt them all down.

    Well tonight, my Bella, who watches me like a hawk, saw her dad going after

    them and she helped! She pointed them out to me and tried to get one. Then she

    vanished for a while and I had to call her. Just a while ago I went into the bedroom

    and found a big fly crushed near the sliding door. It wasn't there before dinner

    so I can only guess my girl followed it in there and it!!

    Good girl Bella!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I swear to God this is a true story.

    Bella hangs around SR all the time, constantly watches him. Amazing that she'd pick up on his strong dislike of flies. We keep kidding about what lousy watchdogs they are, but she's one super fly hunter. She's daddy's little girl.

    The pets can't get to them, but it's adios flies. Or get a couple of venus flytraps. If they work themselves out of a job inside just move them outside in the shade.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Our little flycatcher is the pup closest, Bella. She wasn't too good on the track, heard that the best she did was come in second, once. the rest of the time she just plain old last. But she's hell on wheels with those flies.

    Darlene is the pup with the white face. She's 11 1/2 and doesn't care if there's a fly in the house. Just give her lots of pets and even more dog treats. She reminds SR when it's treat time. She has that greyt internal clock that reminds her, and him, of when it's time for Milkbones.

    Scorpions give me the heebie jeebies!



    That's cool Bella kills flies.

    We have three Boston Terriers. One of 'em HATES flies. She'll snap at 'em, but her little snout's too short to get 'em.

    How are the Bostons with kids? My niece got one for her two daughters and the pup is very sweet with the little girls. But I was wondering how they'd be with kids that are 3 & 5. My son and DIL had 2 boxers. They lost the younger one recently (dog very sick) and they're thinking of a Boston Terrier. I had schnauzers at one time, and they definitely weren't good with kids, snappy little things.

    Hmmm, until they get 4 or 5 years old, they're pretty hyper and kind of
    hard to keep down. They're easily excitable and can go from sleeping to
    60 mph in 2 seconds. Especially if there's more than one of 'em.

    If they get a lot of attention, it mellows 'em out some. They have a lot
    of energy (when they're awake).

    They're not snappy, but they definitely like their nose in your business.

    Delia ignores flies, but centipedes face certain death in her proximity.


    My late cat would go for flies, though. She'd get one every once in a while. I keep cheap hair spray around for them, now. Hair spray freezes them, then I can just smush them with a paper towel.
