Default Another Doggy Thread

The wife and I took our dog Casey to a local park this weekend to check out a few trails.

We started out with a picnic... wiener dog ready for the begging to begin.

Up and over. Not bad for just having her 10th birthday

Chillin' on the waterfront

Just a random shot of the river along the trail

Mallard's pond was off of another trail. This is where we saw the first tick

This old grave yard was along the trail. The two marble headstones were from the 1800's. The smaller stones in front were the foot markers. The other headstones and markers were wooden and well worn from bugs, weather, and flooding. Yes, that's a tree growing in the middle of one of the graves.

It was a fun day until we started seeing the ticks. Karen and I were wearing bug spray, but Casey wasn't so lucky. When we got home we spent a good 45 minutes with tweezers, alcohol (not the good kind) and q-tips removing ticks from her. We removed about a dozen... some were so small they looked like freckles. We finished her off with a good bath then went to check each other for the unwanted hitchhikers. That was the fun part
