’tis the season

Pulled this tick off Willow’s head. It had not burrowed in yet. I’m not sure where she picked it up. We were in the mountains with Gemma for our morning walk. We were in snow so I’m sure she didn’t get it there.

It has been a mild winter and an early dry spring, so it’s bound to be a bad year for ticks.

Lisa has been holding off stripping Willow, but with this recent development, she may be stripped sooner than later! It will be easier to spot the ticks if her fur is smooth.
