Bird flu..dog virus..Link?

I live in Arizona. There is a flu affecting dogs here. There is no cure,and it id deadly. Dogs often come in close contact with duck droppings.I understand healthy ducks can carry bird flu. Could ther be a link? Has anyone looked at this? Pleas reply to binnie53@hotmail.com Thank you...

more guff from New Scientist, inc mention of five to eight percent death rate (among dogs known to have become infected - with only cough and runny nose in 80$ knon to be infected, maybe there are undiagnosed cases):
