Last week My wife and stepson took our dog, Astro Einstein and went to check out some lake property. For a very brief time, Astro was running through some tall grass. After they came back to the cabin I was out side with Astro and he rolled over on his back.

That's when I spotted a tick, then another, then another and another and another. In all I pulled 30 to 40 ticks off him. To make things worse, the next day I was talking to my wife and I spotted a tick right inside the top of her ear. The tick had already latched on but I finally got it out.

Be warned, it's a terrible year for ticks.
