A sign of the Apocolypse

At least it seems like one to me. I found a flea on my dog at 4:30 this morning. I have not seen a flea on my dogs in probably more than a year, and even then it was one we picked up on a walk. Of course, because we haven't had a problem I have been slack in using the flea control products that I have in the "dog stuff drawer." So, I just finished catching all the dogs and putting some FR*ntline on them. I only found the one flea and it was on Clairesse. Of course, she is easy to find them on because of her ultra short haircut. I am hoping it was just a transient one that we collected when we went down to the playground yesterday. I took the little dogs in the stroller and the big ones on leashes. It was a trying journey, and we won't do it again, but I just thought I would give it a shot.
I may have the kids bathe the dogs tonight. They have to practically put on wet suits to do it, but it is a fun way to burn up an hour and also get something done that needs doing!

Yeah, umm.... if you just applied the Frontline today, don't bathe them tonight. Wait at least 2 days. Seriously.
