They really were brutal. I wanted to douse myself in doxy prophylactically after that race... How did Rico fair with them?
So glad you guys enjoyed the day!
All the ones that attached to him died. He even had them btwn his toes. Dog meds work really well :)
They are terrible on the East coast this year. How about the Midwest?
Between his toes... Ugh... We had thought about bringing our dogs out and were saying afterward that we were really glad we opted not to, specifically because of the ticks.
They were all dead or dying at least. Dogs are much better protected from ticks than humans!
Conversation about ticks. Required to chime in. They suck.
Did you know the blood of blue-bellies lizards in CA and 5-lines skinks in VA kill whatever causes Lyme disease in ticks?
Things you learn when your daughter insists you de-tick a lizard...
I can concur that the ticks on the East Coast are bad. I pulled off at least 10 throughout the Happy Mutant race in VA, everything from dog ticks, deer ticks and seed ticks. Hoping I don't get Garrison and silkychrome's allergy..
That's exactly what Brent said when we left NJ.
It's an average day for us to pull 5 or so off after a couple hours of training in the woods.
