Long day yesterday. The appraiser did his thing. The inspector did his thing (slowly!) He was so very nice, but he was here until 8:30 last night! I kept the doggies in the car out front with the windows rolled down and a nice bowl of water. They were so happy to break out of there!
Then we were all pooped and settled in front of the TV. And I saw it. A flea on Prince! EEK! It didn't matter that it was 9 pm, they both got an immediate bath. As you can see above, Mickey thinks the bathtub is just a great big water bowl. He drinks long and hard from that warm water! I saw a few little fleas go down the drain, but this morning I found another on on Prince.
Off to Walmart I went! I bought some little tubes of flea treatment for both of them and some spray for their fur and their bedding. I put all their bedding in the washing machine on the HOT AS BLAZES setting. Before bedtime, I'll spray down their night-night crate very well.
Can you tell I don't like fleas? I haven't seen one on our dogs for about 10 years. I guess the mild winter we had is causing the outbreak. Hopefully, we'll nip it in the bud.
After lunch, Mickey did a little of this.
Ahh, the joys of late Spring!
We won't know until early next week the results of the appraisal and inspection; I think the buyers have to notify us by Monday if I'm not mistaken. Still keeping fingers crossed. The clean-out continues around here, but we're making good progress. Three weeks from today is our move!
While the inspector was here, I organized a new quilting project. Maybe I will actually have some quilty goodness to share here soon. Meanwhile, for your viewing pleasure, check out an AWESOME quilt here!
