Best Part/Worst Part About Sunny Days

These pictures are from Monday when the sun was streaming down, we were warm, and mom decided we needed to be wet, too.  You see Mom likes these sunny days because she can give us the dreadful bath then we can go to the porch and dry on the deck.

Lucky for us it's only 70° and rainy today so mom won't bathe us.... right mom?  Right? Uh, Mom... right?!?

*The close up pictures of Newby's head is showing how Dixie has decided to groom him until he is bald... and he lets her!!!!  We have to shoo her off him... it's because fleas and mosquitos are very bad this year and we are having trouble keeping our little ones free of bugs.. in our world one bug is too many... no repellant seems to work, any suggestions?

Have you tried coconut oil on the bare spots, you can rub it right into their skin, mom puts it in our food and it helps our coat stay beautiful. we use comfortis, but we tried a topical this month instead, we don't think we like it as well.

STOP BALDING MY MAN DIXIE!

We love to see your beautiful weather and porch. And of course, seeing Mr. Reed always delights us too :)

We had bath's yesterday too. I found a deaded mouse and made sure he was REALLY deaded by rolling all over him. Mommy almost barfed!

Good luck with the bug issue. We got ton's of skeeto's here butt thankfully NO fleas.

Hugs,
Lily Belle
