Attack of the Killer Ants

Canyon here...


It seems we have some invaders in our house. Mom noticed them the other day and thought dad had taken care of them...

Mom hates bugs like this.....they aren't nice and cute like ladybugs and butterflies...

Mom is having irrational fears of these ants invading our house and taking over...

So what did they get at the grocery store??? You guessed it....ant traps!

So one of the rooms of our basement is off limits to us now thanks to Kelsey Ann. Way back, when Mom and Dad lived in their rental townhouse they had some ants get into the house and put out ant traps to catch them. The problem came when Kelsey decided to try to eat the ant traps. Mom freaked and thought she was poisoned. She called the vet and he said it should be ok but if they wanted they could give her Ipecac syrup to make her throw up. So out mom went at 10PM to get the yucky stuff to make her horka. Mom got home, forced the yucky stuff on KA, and they waited. They made her stand outside so she wouldn't horka in the house. They got sick of waiting for her out there so they put her down in her crate. (want the real gruesome story of why she got sent back inside???? Cover your eyes if you have a weak stomach. She tried to eat a nest of baby bunnies while they left her outside to horka!) Then she horkaed. Mom and Dad thouht she was done so let her go up to bed....she horkaed in her bed then too. Mom and Dad had lots of stuff to clean up. KA definitely earned her HULA membership many times over.

So Mom and Dad tell me because they don't want a repeat of the whole Kelsey Ann and the ant trap incident that we are not allowed in that room until all of the ants are sent to their untimely death!

What a story! You'd think ant poison would be bad for dogs since it's poison. My mom says she thought beagles were bad for eating anything! KA definitely earned her award.

love & wags,

Your mom and dad are so smart to try to prevent access to the traps. They know that pups are so curious about things they shouldn't get into.

"Safety first!" as we say around Ao4 HQs. Your parents are just keeping you out of there because they love you!
Our mom thinks those bugs look "icky". Is that even a word?

Woo Woo Canyon,
Your maw and pa are just bein' careful you don't eat anythin' bad and upset your tummies. You wouldn't believe the stories my Maw has about one of her past sibes Sasha. She ates a whole bag of baking chocolate and a bag of coconut. She hoarked it up too, all night long. Maw said all you smelled was chocolate and coconut.

Husky kisses,

Kelsey Ann really set a high standard, didn't she? Stay away from the bugs, they bite and it's not nice or fun.

Your parents are great for looking out for you. And KA is great for protecting you now with what happened then. (I'd love to ask her if the bunnies nest tasted good, though. I wonder).

Wooo,

That Kelsey Ann was quite the gal. That was a great story.

ah, so that's where all of the ants went that use to be in our kitchen. Hey, good luck with them. Our human woman found that the stupid ants never went into the traps, so she bought the liquid tasty poison and put dollops on the kitchen counters out of our reach. Then she sat and giggled as the ants crowded around the poison and ate themselves to death... my human woman needs a hobby.
