It started innocently enough. The one who is paw challenged noticed that a swarm of ants was covering the front driveway. The warm spring sun had brought them out to do their thing and apparently their thing is forming large swarms in sunny places. He grabbed his spray gun and went to work on them. Shortly thereafter he was out back and on the logs by the garden was another swarm of ants.
So a real search was conducted. He was searching for swarms of anything. He found another one. He called the Orkin man. The Orkin man made an inspection of the house, looking everywhere. Then he delivered the bad news.
"You have a terrible infestation! One of the worst I have ever seen, it will be terribly hard to control this one." He then took some photos to document the extent of the infestation. Below is his photo of the worst Infestation of Golden Retrievers he had ever seen.
The photo was a little blurry, the pest control man took the photo as he was fleeing out the front door, he was in fear of his uniform. His black pants were rapidly being covered by golden hair. We did not think it was funny, and we think the resident chauffeur should be ashamed. Besides, the infestation will cure itself tomorrow when our cousins family gets home from their vacation and we are back to being just three.
