What are these black bugs on my dog?

I have a 5 year old chihuahua. She has these random black bugs on her. They crawl, and are too big to be fleas, but they arn't ticks. I think they might be biting me too, since my dog sleeps in my bed I've been getting bug bites. What are these things?

Depends. Flea season is in full swing in certain parts of the country and fleas can get really large. If they seem much too large to be fleas which are larger than normal, they could also be bedbugs, especially if you sleep together and have been getting bites.

Try taking a dead one to the vet for a quick ID. They can usually ID most bugs, as well as give you a way to get rid of them.
