Tick Taxi Service
Been very busy chasing bunnies, kitties and mousies. Sorry it's been a while since I posted. Will try to catch up. With all the rain and now heat, I've been bringing home these round little bugs after almost every walk. Luckily they never bite, just drop off inside the house.
Allex Michael: Ticks don't seem to like dogs who eat garlic. Fed a whole clove each daily, neither Ebbey (85 pounds) or her Rottweiler roomate (90 pounds) have been bitten. Though both seem to be providing a tick taxi service into the house. The unfed parasites then crawl up the furniture and curtains awaiting an ususpecting meal. Luckily all humans in the house also eat garlic, so no bites or Lyme disease yet.
