Anyone need a tick magnet??

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

I love your dog! What breed is he?

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.

Blue Tick Coon Hound, sounds like he is living up to his name :) He is so cute!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

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.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
