DENGUE FEVER

Dengue Fever is some bad stuff for humans. It is prevalent in my city these days, as well as other cities in India. It is carried by mosquitoes. As it gets cooler, there will be less mosquitoes, but now, we have lots. And mosquitoes like my Lady. She's been plugging things into walls, and slathering on goop. Mosquitoes don't like doggie blood - they prefer human blood, so I don't have to worry. Aunty Gail, one of my timeshare families, is in the hospital with Dengue now. We just got word that Aunty Mindy, another one of my timeshare families, tested positive for Dengue as well. Another American teen friend of ours was admitted to the hospital last night. And, we got word yesterday that my little buddy Wyatt (age 2 1/2) tested positive for Dengue fever. He is miserable! If his platelets drop further he will also be hospitalized. Nasty stuff. 
This is just one of the things we deal with here. 
I sure enjoyed having my newest little buddy, Nolan here this week! He is full of good smells! He's only three months old. 
Lady and I are home for the rest of the month. Our November calendar is full, with three trips! 
It's cooling off a bit. We enjoy temps in the low seventies in the early morning! Our highs are finally in the high eighties!!

    You are lucky that YOUR kind of mosquitoes don't like your bloods... the type that we in the USA have... LOVE our bloods and they carry some scary thingys to us.

  5. Mozzies are terrible. We hate when they bite us, but at least they don't have dengue fever... and we're protected from heart worm. We hope everyone recovers soon. Maybe you'd better stay up at night and bite any mozzies that try to get to Lady.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
