What was a lovely hike today turned into an evening of combing for and removing ticks. We found three on my fiancé and six (YES, SIX) on Lucy. A good time was had by all. (Sense the sarcasm?)
Believe it or not, having been a city girl all my life and Lucy having probably originated from the inner city, this was our very first encounter with ticks… ever. I have to say though, we’ve gone hiking a lot with her in the past and somehow we’ve always avoided this issue. Hope it never happens again.
