You lay down with dogs, you wake up with......


dogs we have
now add fleas
too many it seems
running and playing
sleeping eating
it started
itch scratch
sigh

first time it
happened
30 years or more
odds were right
where did it
come from

wash and comb
spray and clean
inside and out
bomb the house
coming up next

do the yard
bottle and hose
on the attack
end the scourge

bite or be bitten

That is a terrific last line!
I don't envy you; we've been there with the cats and it is definitely no fun at all. Hope you got rid of them all.
