Something that I have noticed with the Cirneco is how they are affected by nettles.
My Pharaoh's and Ibizan's run through nettles without even noticing but when the
Cirnechi go through, almost immediately they begin to scratch and come up in lumps
all over the body. The feet are particularly affected. A good remedy is piriton tablets,
I give one immediately and bring the dog in doors. Whithin a short time they are
back to themselves again. Problem is: they just don't learn from it and off they
go again. Where we live we have fields which David cuts every week during the summer
but alas the edges run riot until the hedgecutter comes along. Another lesson they
never learn is wasp chasing hurts but I expect that is the same in most breeds.
In Scandinavia, the Cirneco owners knit jumpers and hats for the winter months as
Cirnechi can suffer from frostbite on the tips of their ears. Fortunately in UK we
don't have such problems.
Judith Alan in London is now prepared for the birth of her new litter from Bellatrix
to Tigger at the end of this month and I will keep you posted of the result.
