    Anyone need a tick magnet??

    I mean seriously, this years tick count

    Muttley - 0 ticks
    Me - 1 tick, YUK
    Badger 3 ticks
    Bubba, lets, several, many, lots, he just attracts the **** things, they love those ears.







    The poor boy is feeling a bit sore tonight, he went to the vet today and came back a couple of ounces lighter

    Love them ears! I think the ticks love the folds and soft skin. The only time I have gotten one...it has been in a place that requires a specialist to take it out...lol

    That sounds like a fitting name, considering the tick problems you are having! :)
    How is he out on rides, does he have the stamina to go for a few hours? I've been searching for a breed of dog that might be suitable for my lifestyle and thought I might ask.

    Yup Velvet. But not nearly as sexy as one might imagine! *laugh*

    He hasn't been out yet, he is only 6 months old and so far we have been encouraging him to stay home.

    We bought him back in February after our Doberman suddenly died, now there was a boy who loved to come out riding with me, he would go all day and really enjoy it.

    What an adorable hound!!! I love me some Coon Hounds!

    Any time my Dane has a tick, it's in her ears. I guess they prefer those soft, folded places to her nearly nekkid body.

    I rarely find ticks on her though, they mostly like to try and hitch a ride on me.
