Not Again!

Radar happenings: He can walk on the slick floor better today.  His teeth are coming through and are just below the surface. Nails were clipped today.He can hear better.  I play his various sound tracks throughout the day.  The barking dogs one is not his favorite.  The others he doesn't seem to notice. Makes you wonder what those dogs are actually saying! He licked and licked my face this morning!  He is currently chewing on Henry's chin and batting him with his paws. Very nice puppy behavior. He is staying rambunctious for longer period of time....and then of course falling into an exhausted sleep

Today the little cherub has had Kelsey come visit and admire his mad puppy skills.  She brought her adorable 7 month old son as well.  What a cute kid!  So this was the very nice part of the day.  I got to catch up with Kelsey, play with baby feet and His Majesty got loved on by someone new.  Kelsey made note that when she looked back at pics of Quixx (Pixie's green collared pup from the last litter) he has the same sleeping behaviors now as then.  Radar should be a back sleeper as an adult since that is his favorite position.

But to prove that no good deed goes unpunished it has been a that kind of day.  I worked last night and met mom right afterward to run the big dogs.  Why did Roady and Pixie have to find cat poop to roll in?  Nice.  Baths for both of them afterward but then I was in not-so-sleepy mode and had to force myself to close my eyes until Kelsey got here.  After she and Miles left I managed to get a little sleep but not the best and then time to pick up Drew from practice.  Well!  Wouldn't you know while I was playing with Radar I discovered this little black stuff on him and then a FREAKING FLEA ran across his belly!  Really?!?!?  Why on Earth does this happen when I have a a baby in the house!  The last time was 2 years ago with the last litter.

Roady and Pix had been treated topically about 2 weeks before Radar was born and they don't have any (Roady is a little sensitive to them so I have noticed them on him very quickly in the past). I think what has happened is that the other day the big dogs went for a run and brought them back to the untreated, helpless little one.  I did catch that little nasty flea and drowned it.  Could I be lucky and have it be the only one on him?  Probably not so Radar is getting his first bath when I get home in the morning.  I'd do it tonight but I need a nap before work.
