Flea circus

Last week I had a terrible outbreak of Hives on my legs. It's such a mystery. I haven't used new detergent or soap. I did try on bathing suits the day before the break out. Maybe chemicals on new clothing? I did eat a handful of almonds. Maybe a new nutty allergy? It is so uncomfortable. I went to the Dr. yesterday and he thinks it may not be hives, it may be insect bites! Right away my mind went back to 2 weeks ago when I tried a new groomer for Molly. This woman grooms out of her house. It was a dark, damp, dirty basement. Her instruments looked seedy. She looked ragged. I got the thought that I was bringing Molly for an illegal abortion. My better instincts said Lie and get the hell out of here. But what did little lulu do? I left my poor innocent baby there! I've never been one for confrontation and I couldn't think of a good excuse. I wish I could have just said, " gee ( dirty lady) I'm sorry but I don't like your conditions here. I'm sorry I wasted your time. Thank-You. NO! Not me. I even tipped the hag when I picked up Molly! I have now drowned my two dogs with baths and frontline. I don't see a single flea but i am still itching and freaking. It's amazing how when a thought gets into your (crazy) head, It will make you totally neurotic! The only thing that makes me think my Dr. is wrong is insect bites get better and go away. These bumps are still red and itchy and yet my dogs Are not.

sweet darling-perhaps you are allergic to fleabites and the poochies are not. Not fair!
Want to see my poison ivy?!
