Whose afraid of the silver?

Well she did it this time. She pulled out the silver. I don't know who to blame for bringing the little bloodsuckers into the house, but she's on a mission to get rid of them. I could even be the culprit, but I won't admit it. Some of them must have jumped onto our fur at the dog walk/bike path in the city.

Last week she had Betty in the usual spot (lap) and noticed something moving on her back tucked into her fur. Next thing I know Betty was getting a bath outside. For some reason, I had to get one too because she said, and get this, "You stink". I stink? Well, whatever, I felt pretty good after. I can handle the water. Poor Betty cries. The water is too cold coming out of the hose. Doesn't bother me much. I have thick skin. Today Betty couldn't handle the silver that she pulled out of a bag either. Betty did not like the comb...but you should've seen what was in the comb when she dragged it along Betty's back! It was almost like mom wanted to see results (fleas) after each stroke of the comb. She got obsessed. She knew they were in her fur, and she wanted them out. Betty looked afraid and then she went off to hide when she was done. Of course I was next. I'm always next in everything. I gotta admit, I'm not a fan of the comb either. I don't like that thing touching my skin. But at least she got them off of me and their little eggs too. We need to be used to the comb for the next few days. And baths.

Uh, what about Cali and Cookie? They what? Don't have any? Another result of being vertically challenged—fleas don't have far to jump.

Yours truly,
Fleabag ^..^

Metal comb...OH NO. Mom doesn't know about that yet and we must make sure she doesn't find out. I feel so bad for you and poor Betty. For the record, those dang vertical dogs have too many advantages. They get to counter surf, don't have fleas, and can see out of the window.

Oh No!!! You have those pesky little friends called fleas, mom told us to stay away from them but sometimes they are sneaky and hop along on cute little fur bodies! We hope they don't stay and visit too long:)

You should try renting out space to fleas in exchange for dog bones!

thanks everybody, we don't really mind being hosts although they're kinda itchy, but she's not having anything to do with it...and if that's not enough she cut our toenails too! what is going on with her?
