WHAT IS A DEVIL DOG FLEA?
The purpose of the Military Order of the Devil Dog Fleas is to ban together, to pester, pinch and otherwise make the life of the Devil Dogs one of chasing, scratching, rolling and rubbing pests to get them out of their hair and hide and to create a bond of fun and comradeship between the Military Order of the Devil Dogs and thier Fleas. The time spent together in this organization is called a SCRATCH, not a meeting. A Flea Scratch usually takes place at the same time as a Military Order of Devil Dogs Growl. The dress code is casual, the idea is to have fun.
