She’s not much bigger than a tick
Size doesn't matter. ;)

Dog goes out to pee. Tick gets on dog. Dog comes back inside. Tick leaves dog looking for more better foods.

Flea/tick treatments should start May 1. Time to treat your pup. :D

No, but he has ticks...
That's enough outta you!

DND. No power though and no estimate on restoring the juice. Not looking forward to tossing another refrig freezer of stuff away. Happens way to often.

If it happens frequently, have you considered buying a generator that will keep the Freezer/fridge open?
I have. Even thought about a whole house hookup but it a bit of electrical work. Lot is too small and house has too many windows for the fancy natural gas built in one....just no place for it per install guidelines.

FWIW, a portable generator like a Wen 56235i, 2350 surge watts/1900 rated watts, selling for $430 on Amazon, should be able to keep most refrigerators or freezers cold. Surge is the important factor, there's a surge when the refrigerator kicks on and if the generator can't handle the surge it will go into overload and shut down. Doesn't necessarily need to run continuously if the door isn't being opened continuously. Or, get a bit larger portable (more watts, and heavier/less portable), still a modest cost vs throwing out a large amount of food.

If you want to operate more stuff concurrently it gets a little more complicated but can be done. Can get one unit, add another later via a parallel connection that's available from Wen and others, a plug and play configuration, if cost is a consideration.

Don't run it inside, and get a heavy extension cord, at least 12 gauge. Follow operating instructions carefully.

Well this doesn't happen often. Filled the car the pump auto clicked off at $56.00 very seldom does it come out even. But it does make me wonder why it be well past $50 to fill a Chevy Cruze. SMH
