Her name is Phoebe. She is a Drahthaar, commonly known as a German Wirehair Pointer. She is my wife's shadow, loves our daughter and treats me as one of the pack. Six years old this September. I understand that there are mosquitoes that home in on body heat and those that home in on CO2, something too about day mosquitoes and night mosquitoes. Mosquitoes, deer-flies and black flies love me so my wife always made me walk about 10 paces ahead of her. The strange thing about deer flies is that if I wear a hat with a full brim, they won't go after my head or neck.
