Last Weekend's Adventure

 Last weekend I went with the hoomans to visit my Aunt D in Connecticut.  It tooks foverevers to get there.
Then the next day I went for a great walkie were I met a new friend named Lulu.
Unfortunately I met some other creatures I had never seen before.  It was a really warm day and all the baby ticks hatched!  The hoomans and I had gone of the trail and then we noticed a tick.  We got right back on the trail but I had to stand there for about 20 minutes as the hooman looked me all over and looked themselves all over for ticks.  There was about thirty ticks on all of us (they hadn't bit us, they were just on our clothes).  We gots them all off and I got a new dose of frontline plus to be sure they didn't bite me in case they missed one. Those peoples in Connecticut have to deal with really bad ticks, Lyme disease is named after Old Lyme Connecticut were the first case was discovered.  We have them in Maine too but once the frost comes the ticks go bye bye until spring.  I have frontline plus every month and from April - October and then Momma skips a month over the winter.  We hardly ever see ticks, let alone this late in the year.  I has never had one ever and then a whole tick party exploded on us.  We finished our walk, checked ourselves over again and again and then got back in the car.
The tick party was stressy so we needed some pasta.  This stuff is soooo good!
The hoomans gots me a meatball... Yum!
When it was time to make the trip back to Maine I was sad to leave Aunt D but I was so tired.  We stopped to Colonial Candies in Massachusetts on the way home.
Momma got a very bad for you ice cream (she skipped lunch so she said that made it ok)
I gots plain jane vanilla but it was good!  I wonder if Norwood and Mango go here?
I slept the whole ride home, I only woke up to barks at the toll booth attendants.
Boy was I tired when we gots home.  It took me three days to get caught up on my beauty rest.

  8. Oh those TICKS! Terrible! We have had to continue our Frontline into November because of the warm weather. Our vet says they can freeze solid and then one warm day and BAM! I think that ice cream was the perfect way to relieve your stresses.


  9. Hey Tucker!
    Wow, what a pawesome adventure in CT! Sorry to hear about those nasty, horrible tickie critters. YUCK! I definitely think ice cream and a meatball make up for that. Happy napping!
