Monday morning chores take a little bit longer than the rest of the week
because that's when Lucy and the boys get their weekly tick prevention treatment –
a thorough application of Frontline Flea and Tick Spray in their ears.
This has been going on for 83 Mondays, so it's no longer a big deal.
Had I made this video back when we started, it would have been much more exciting.
They taught me early on that they prefer not to be haltered and tied for the process,
and just because it comes in a spray bottle doesn't mean it has to be used that way.
If I were them, I would demand a helluva lot more than one cookie
for this level of cooperation.
