Mosquito hunting 101

Once back in the driver's seat, she looked at me in the rear-view mirror like maybe I was the one who was out of control.

Mosquitoes and flies make her completely crazy. Like crazy enough to slam her own head into a piece of furniture or the wall. There was one in the car with us two days ago and I thought she would flip us over. Me and her and a Chevy Malibu - murals of dog slobber painted on both back windows.

Officer:"Ms. Adcock, what made you run over the fireplug anyway? How many fingers do you see now?"

Finally I pulled into a parking lot and calmly, climbed in the backseat with her to kill the mosquito. I think my exact words were:

"Now, sit your ass down or I'm gonna' beat it with that flip-flop right there until it swells up like a beach ball."

It's hard to believe sometimes that I was raised in Ohio.

Dixie hates all flying bugs as well. I've found a great natural spray that I can use on both of us (we both have crappy skin and allergies) that keeps them away.
Ahh, sweet relief :-)

I can't blame her. Mosquitos drive me to distraction, too.

Well, I don't like mosquitos in my car either. Stella is right to be upset. :)

She sure is looking fine and frisky.

That is just too funny. One of my dogs go crazy over flys.

What a beautiful dog.
