Ticks!

Hey all! So fall is here, and I'm kinda glad summer is over. Even if fall hit with a cold spell and lots of rain! I was cold inside the house so mom put my sweater on. I don't like wearing clothes! but after a while I realized it was warm and cozy so I now tolerate it just fine :)

So the reason I'm happy summer is over, is because we won't get as many parasites now! see, during summer we get fleas, both Tallulah and I got ticks, and mosquitoes which eat both Tallulah (short haired) and our humans alive! argh! Not to mention nasties like snakes and spiders.

But now that it's getting colder all those critters will just go away. But I did get one last nasty surprise!

I had a white bump on my nose, and I kept staring at it. Luckily dad saw it too, for it was a tick! a really tiny one, but it was really attached to my nose.

So dad took it out with tweezers, but it was so burrowed in that I have a small bump on my nose now :( Mom & dad said they'd be monitoring it and if it doesn't get smaller I'll have to go see the vet. I'd rather avoid that! but anyway, hopefully it will be the last tick I'll get in a long time!

Stay warm everybody, see you around!

I got a tick once. I'm not a fan of them.

Hey Buddy, I hope that tick is long gone.

Stay warm this fall and get ready for the start of the NHL season.
