Both of my dogs think that bees are one of the most exciting things on our walk. They whiz around their heads as we walk down the path due to the multitude of flowers in the townhouse landscaping, and are the source of much excitement. Hackles are sometimes raised, and I hear a lot of snapping. While I will try to distract them as much as possible, of course it’s not always possible.
I try to imagine what the dogs think they are, and this is what I believe:
Because when the squirrels dart past, they react almost exactly the same way.
It goes without saying that we are prepared with Benadryl in the cupboard in the event the dogs catch a squirrel bee, but here are some other good articles on how to prepared for and what to do if your dog eats a bee.
