It is an adorable photo but YIKES on the fire ants. I have had a couple bites from them and they are so terribly painful. How do you make certain the dogs don't get infection in those bites? Is there any way to get rid of fire ants? We don't really have them where I live.

Poor thing :( Xdog suffered a fire ant bite a few weeks ago while we were in Austin. Benadryl, cortisone cream, and warm betadine/soap soaks kept her comfortable during the healing process and kept infection at bay. Here's to a speedy recovery!

Awww I am glad she is feeling better! Peanut got bit once on the bottom of her foot. She levitated and I ran over to see what happened. I got bit too (duh) and we both jumped into the doggie pool!
