Spring, er, summer!

The dogs had their annual trip to the vet for their heartworm tests and any needed vaccinations.


Misha was very brave.


Milady, not so much.


Misha shared an uninflated wood tick with us, plus we picked an inflated deer tick off her eyelid. (Smokey is holding it between his thumb and middle finger in the first photo.)

Both dogs are healthy (yay!) but overweight (boo, hiss!) Misha, a coupla pounds; Milady, a lot.

We need more and longer daily walks! say the dogs.

Soon! says Smokey, whose knees are getting better by the day.

    Those are cute little dogs. The ticks are just precious, also. :((

    My mom came up with a thing when spending time in Wisconsin woods which is tick heaven. She would put the ticks found between two layers of scotch tape. They could not get away and I think the chemicals in the tape killed them, or kept them from getting air. Either way they died. It was easy and effective. We referred to it as ‘tick tape’.
