I hate bugs

Actually, on the subject of hating bugs it's debateable if Mum hates them more than I do. Probably her, since I just sit around sometimes just watching bugs but Mum has a panic attack and tries to find ways to be rid of bugs of any shape and size.

If we're talking about favorites, spiders, mosquitos and fleas are probably our least favorite. Spiders just look scary and some are poisonous AND common, especially in California where we live and while irritating mosquitos are not as commonly fatal unless you have an outbreak of West Nile. FLEAS are MY worst enemy though paws down - they really are such a pest.

A flea jumped on and bit me so much once that mum found all these blood flakes on my back when she went to wash me with flea shampooh and nearly fainted. Apparently, the convenient Frontline medication ended up not being as effective against fleas as Advantage had been just as the Vet's side note on pros and cons warned. So we were left, after 2 anti flea foggings of home, one Advantage application and 2 flea baths later sticking with Advantage for the no flea regime.

On that note, since refilling the Advantage supply can get to be a hassle in SF since mum works late hours - we order ours at this site, where you can save up to 50% when you buy the best flea & tick products at PetCareRx
They truly have the best prices on pet meds and we wanted to share the deal with you too! Trust us...buying specialized preventative flea meds can really save you from having to deal with the incredible amount of effort it takes to get rid of the fleas.

Trust really don't want to be as unhappy as I was and have to hide like I was in my picture. =)
