Found firmly attached to my sweet Pumpkin-girl's ear!
The ear that stands up nicely like it should!
In 25 years of dog ownership, I've never seen a tick, much less had to pick one off one of my dogs or cats!
Since moving to this house 15 years ago, we've never even used flea medication on our animals because they've never had fleas, let alone TICKS!
Our vet says they are flooded with calls about ticks. People in my Bible Study class last night said their animals are covered! And the local PetSmart has Advantix hidden away behind locked doors because gang members are stealing the (breathtakingly expensive) stuff and bootlegging it!
What's our world coming to???
P.S. The article I read about removing ticks said to have ready a bottle with alcohol into which to deposit the nasty creature so you can be sure it is dead. Evidently, the hideous creatures don't squash very easily and when they do, any bacteria (dear Lord!) that they are carrying is easily dispersed. Why, tell me, was a creature as disgusting as this ever created? Surely God made a mistake?
