Off to the vets for their annual shots.

It's time for the boyz annual checkup at the vets. I don't like having them injected with a dose of toxic chemicals but the alternative is having them exposed to a variety of mosquito and tick borne diseases that we don't fully understand but which are rampant in this part of the world. We are fortunate that we live on top of a hill where it is too windy and dry for mosquitos to hatch out . Lower down in the valley where water collects in large pools by the river after heavy rain, leischmaniasis is a real problem and tiger mosquitos make life unbearable in the summer.. I'll post later when we get back. It always takes a day for the two of them to recover from their shots so we'll be at home for the weekend.
