CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations to the 2024 NARC Winner, FC-AFC Bayou-Star Fleurty Girl owned and bred by Mark & Sussie Menzies. Fleurt was also handled by Mark.
 
Fleurt is a 7.5 year old black female, a product of FC Fargo II and FC Delpond's Pretty in Pink. She has earned 71.5 All-Age career points including 8 All-Age wins. She is a 3x National/National Am Qualifier and was a finalist in the 2023 National.
 
She has two titled siblings: FC Zeiss VIII and FC-AFC Hunter's Choice XX, the latter also competed in the 2024 NARC.
 
In her Derby career she earned 27 points and was a National Derby Finalist in 2016.
 
Fleurt earned her FC at 6.7 years old at Swamp Dog and her AFC at 6.3 years old at Maryland.
 
Her pedigree includes a number of other national champions including Lean MacLottieHonchoRay's Rascal and Tank.
 
In addition to Mark, Fleurt has been trained by Black River Retrievers' Alan Pleasant and Hunter Street and her previous owners, John and Suzan Caire. The late Chris Payne of Red Dirt Retrievers did her basics.

HOMEMADE SKUNK REMEDIES

From Cornell Riney Canine Health Center

Ingredients

  • 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1-2 teaspoons of dishwashing liquid, such as Dawn

Instructions

  1. Wear gloves. Rinse the dog's eyes with cool water if sprayed in the face.
  2. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and immediately apply the solution when it starts to bubble.
  3. Lather the mixture throughout the skunked area on your pet. Be careful to avoid the eyes.
  4. Let sit for 5 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Repeat as necessary if the odor is still present.
  5. Finish by bathing with regular pet shampoo (optional).
  6. Towel dry and let them finish drying in a warm area.
  7. Discard all unused solution. Do NOT store or save.

DON'T

  • Don't make the mixture beforehand or store it in a closed container. The chemical reaction between hydrogen peroxide and baking soda will make the container burst.
  • Don't save any unused mixture. It can't be bottled. The chemical reaction of pressure from combining hydrogen peroxide and baking soda will make it burst, and the subsequent explosion can cause injuries.
  • Don't smoke while shampooing, since this mixture is flammable.

DO

  • Do use the homemade solution right after it is mixed and still bubbling.
  • Do repeat bathing with the homemade solution a few times to remove the smell completely.
  • Do wear old clothes and use towels that you don't mind getting bleached. Hydrogen peroxide will lighten black hair to a bronze color, which will not return to its usual shade until it grows out.
  • Do keep the solution out of your pet's eyes. It can be irritating enough to cause shallow corneal ulcers.
