Since we now have three fur covered animals living in our house, the need for flea protection is very important. I decided that today we would drive out to the vet to have Lucy weighed and pick up some Frontline (since I can't get her a regular visit until the 17th). The morning was quite busy for us so I opted to make this trip after Ava's afternoon nap. Of course Lucy decided that she needed to chow down her entire bowl of dog food before we make the 25 min journey to the vets office (are you crazy, Lucy we are about to take a car ride). I laid old towels out on Lucy's seat in preparation of the ride (and the vomit). During the trip over I was petting Lucy and reassuring her (as well as myself) that everything would be alright and we would be there soon. We got all the way to the vet and noticed the parking lot was very empty. The large sign on the door stated that they closed at 4:00 and it was 4:20! Fabulous! I turned the car around and headed home, hoping that we could make it there before Lucy got sick. Well folks, we made it. It was a nerve racking pointless trip but we all survived. Guess we will try it again tomorrow!
