Ick, A Tick!

I want to remind all you pups to check your peeps for ticks after they've been outside.

I found this one crawling on Rama!
Must be time for her Advantix application.

That is an ugly little creature! I hate ticks. Felt one crawling on my back the other night and of course I did the Tick Dance and he dropped on the concrete. Low and behold he found me again! He was crawling on my leg! Hope you didn't get bit.

EWWWW...I do not like ticks!!!
makes my skin crawl just thinking about them....

Ticks are no fun.......but we have them EVERYWHERE in MA, and there is a huge percentage of them that are infected with Lyme! Two of my family members have had Lyme....I haven't yet....But no wonder as we live only a couple hours away from Lyme, CT, where it's the worst.

Okay, now Beth thinks she has one on her....creepy crawlies....yuck!

Those ticks are the grossest things to look at when they are all engorged. We get our treatment monthly to keep them away. But Phantom freaks out when he sees or smells that vial.

AbHOR those little monsters! In summer here, the ticks tend to stay away, replaced by horrid flea populations - ticks don't like the dry grasses, but the rest of the year, we have to check ALL the time - they are ruthless little suckers! Poor doggies, but oooof - yucky job to remove. Thanks for the reminding!

I hate ticks! A tick gave me Rocky Mt. Spotted Fever a decade ago and gave Alex Lyme Disease. If I never see another tick, I would be very happy. They are dangerous blood sucking beasts! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

I get bite a lot!! I have had to go on antibuotics two times since 85. But if you think about it it really isn't alot with all the bites I have gotten over the years!!! The fun of living in the woods and I wouldn't have it any
other way!!
Ps Great picture!!

Hi! Me and Brudder Ranger and Kitteh Brudder Ripley and Kitteh Sister Abby all wanted to come by and tell you how very much happy we are that you came by to say hi to us today! We always luv to meets new furends!

And ick, ick, ick on that tick! Most luckily, we don't really haves those around here but sometimes we visit in Oak-luh-home-ah and they have 'em there. So we're always extra, extra careful when we go down that way. Thank you for the very much great reminder!

Wiggles & Wags,

Now my mom is all creeped out cuz she has had one of those on her before, ok, more than once. I, on the other hand, have never had a tick ;o)

Mr. Pip said...

Yes, ticks are icky! Very important to do tick checks every day.

Your pal, Pip

The ticks are back here in Virginia too--We've gone several weeks and not seen any--Mot that I missed them!! But it's time to treat those that venture into the woods! THANKS for the reminder to do that!

sophie said...

Kathy said...

Oh no, not a tick!!
Maybe Rama needs a flea and tick collar on her ankles for her morning walks?!
Nasty critters and that looked like a big black one, too!!!
Cyber hug so none jump on me too! :)

Mango said...

On no! Tick! I have had the bad tick sickies twice and it is no fun. We use the frontline and do tick check but I guess you can't always find them all, especially on dark fur doggies such as myself.
