That's What You Get for Diggin' in the Flower Bed!

Hello -

You may have already seen this if you've visited my facebook page lately, but here it is just in case you missed it.

I caught Romo digging in the flower bed - NAUGHTY NAUGHTY!! But the story is much longer than that.

Romo and Lady (my in-laws dog) have fleas. They have been suffering for two weeks now as we waited to see if Frontline was ever going to work. I did some research yesterday, and Frontline is supposed to kill everything off in 12 hours... Needless to say, it didn't work. We've been checking them multiple times a day and picking the fleas off.

Yesterday we spoke with our vet (after being put on hold several times for long periods) who said there was nothing that she could do - it's flea season. She recommended that we get a pill called Capstar (from Petmart) which kills all the fleas within 2 hours. When we got to Petmart, the vet there said that we should give them the pill, treat the carpet, wash the dogs with Dawn dish soap, give the pill one more time, then apply the preventive flea medication. So we started the process.

We washed the dogs with Dawn this morning and let them play outside while they dried off and the carpet is being treated (which takes at least an hour). OF COURSE my little puppy got into the flower bed after 2 minutes. He dug himself into a mess. So I yelled, and spanked, and yelled, and rewashed that darn pup til the dirt was gone. He still had to stay outside though until the carpet was ready. Hence, the cage outside and him acting helpless and hurt. He's just lucky that we washed him in the morning and not in the high noon Texas heat!

On a lighter note, (not lite, however) I made a fruit pizza last night for dessert. This is just an iPhone photo, but I bet if P came with her sweet camera and photoed this baby, you'd be able to taste it by just looking! Even PJ liked it (and he doesn't like sweets at all). Thuy and I might open a fruit pizza/frozen yogurt shop someday.

Anyways, this post is a novel already. I'm done now.
