Well...I rinsed Duchess off in the shower since she went into the pond today...then...me and my mom were talking about ticks...and then while I was checking her over she had this flake on her back "Elbow" and I just gently brushed it off...and it went on my hand!!!!! I saw legs and shook my hand and freaked out...My mom said what! and I was like A TICK I think!!! and she said OOO WE BETTER FIND IT!!! so then a little later I found it crawling up on the outside of my pants! I showed it to my mom and said I found it...she said it was a tick...and YUCK! I always thought they were white!!! and they are actually REALLY small and flat!!! they were a brownish/blackish color...they blended in perfectly with Duchess's fur where it is black with tan mixed hairs like on her butt and legs. I DEFINATELY took a shower RIGHT after and threw my clothes outside.
After we saw that she DID have one tick...I left it to my mom to really lift up fur and look for them. she is hates them...but she is alot more use to them then I am! lol. My mom would feel something small..lift around the fur...and then she found it. We got the tweezers...and she held the tick up for a little bit until they let go...None of them were really attached much...
we found another one on her butt/thigh...and it was just trying to crawl back into the fur...and then the first one that i brushed off.
We don't have Duchess on any flea and tick stuff..my mom hates all the frontline and stuff. Were going to order this other stuff that I guess you put in their water...like I said they didnt seem to inbeaded into her yet.
She went to the same dog park last year...and we never found a tick...maybe since it is spring...and it rained last night...AND she went into the pond...
YUCK! Im still being a clean/germ freak right now lol
my mom said that camping up north she didnt get any ticks...were in Illinois...and so MAYBE if I decide to go camping it will definately be more up north
ahhhhhh
