August 26th, 2011

Good afternoon/evening/morning (depending on when you read this) this is Wilbur coming at you for another round of my bastard blog!!  Sorry for not writing a post last week, I do have a valid excuse, which I will go into more detail about.  It’s been a great week for me with SEVERAL trips to the dog part, and a lot of special attention!!
Let me start by explaining why I was not able to make a post last week.  If you read my previous post I stated that Taylor has taken up the hobby of geocaching, well last week he thought it would be a good idea to bring me along (but when is that ever a bad idea?).  We went WAY north to find this particular cach and walked through the woods in order to locate it.  On the drive home Taylor noticed that he had some type of mite/chigger crawling all over both of his legs.  We raced home as fast as we could and Taylor took a long shower to clean himself off along with washing his clothes.  He then proceeded to do a full inspection on me to see if somehow these blasted bugs found their way to me.  I looked to have none and Taylor let out a long sigh of relief, that was until he came home the next day to see my face looking like it was hit by a bus, or you can imagine a baseball bat if you prefer.  The picture below is how I looked during the worse of it all (pretty graphic, isn’t it?).  After calling the vet, taking LOTS of Benadryl, receiving too many baths, wearing a flea/tick collar, and having some type of chemical placed down my back, I am happy to report that I am mite/chigger free!!  Last week was rough; I was feeling so miserable that writing a weekly blog was very low on my list.  Taylor wanted to complain about all his bug bites, but I think my face takes the cake on how bad this situation was, and leaves little room for Taylor to complain.  The moral of the story is if Taylor gets bugs, then the bastard I am will get bugs too.
After getting those mites/chiggers Taylor placed me on quarantine, and would not allow me around other dogs, so I got no dog park, or the chance to play with Moose or Kimo all last week.  Taylor was nice to me this week and took me out to the park three different times!!  He did have to pay a price though, because I lost my second collar in less than three months….  After being quarantined for a week, that first day at the park felt like heaven!!  I don’t think I have bayed that much in a LONG time, and I also could not think of a better way to spend my week!!
Now for some updates….  I wish I had an update on the Rover watch, but because of my mites/chiggers I have not had a chance to spy on him, so whatever sneaky plan he is evolving has gone unnoticed, which scares me to death.  The geocash that I’m supposed to hide was placed on hold of the same reason, I hope to have more information on both of these issues next week, so please don’t lose faith!!
That’s all I have for right now, I know things have gotten busy in Lawrence again because it seems summer is over and the school has started, which means there will be more people downtown to pet me when we go on walks!!  Thanks for reading, and I’ll catch everybody next time!!
