At the laundromat

Fleas.
When they (possibly) strike you have to give your dog some form of treatment, obviously.
That part is easy, you take some medicine and you pour it on the skin in the back of the dogs neck.
Easy.
And since Lucifer is going to stay with my parents next week, in the country where there are ticks, he was due for a preventive treatment anyways.
No problem.
Except...
It doesn't end there.

If you suspect that there might be fleas on your dog, they may also be around the house.
You will have to vacuum all his usual hangouts as well as wash all the blankets and sheets he comes into contact with on a daily basis.
Well, this is Lucifer we're talking about, so that's everywhere and everything!

So today we went to the laundromat across the street with blankets, pillowcases and our giant bed spread.
We do have a washing machine and that was filled up too, but this way was faster.

This place is so old school
We went out for lunch while we waited, so we didn't have to hang out there the whole time, but i do kinda like it there

After we came home, i still managed to do a little sewing, a lot.
Actually.
I just focused on making a lot of hat and headband bases, using some of the fabric i bought in Japan, instead of finishing a hat.
I'm not usually this well organized, but tomorrow i'm gonna be happy that i did these.

They don't look like much yet, but someday they'll make sense

Now, more Medium.

    Do you use frontline? I re-apply it every 4-5 weeks now during the "flea-months". So far we didn't get any this year...yet.

  6. ohmygod, i'd go absolutely insane. one time my old roommate opted not to give her cats the medicine when they did catch fleas, saying the medicine was bad for them while in fact she'd friggin' treated them with the medicine a couple of months before that as a preventive treatment. i had a crazy roommate like that...ah!

    i hope you've gotten rid of them!!!

  7. I hope so too!
    I've got a very active imagination, so it's just itching all over, but since Allan hasn't felt a thing, i'm pretty sure it's all in my head!
