Tiny Gets Ticked Off!

Here in Texas we have a huge problem with ticks.  Since we live by the woods we have to keep a close eye on Tiny.  She needed a bath so Rick decided to give her one outside in the wheelbarrel...She loved it....not!  But she was a very good girl.

Recently Rick had to make the trip to Austin to pick up Erics car.  I am afraid it is going to need a complete overhaul.

He towed it back with a cool device his boss lent him.

Right now Rick is in Odessa, Eric is in Austin and I am home.

I have Tiny with me and we are just chillin.  Tonight we will watch Big Brother, my current favorite show.

I work tomorrow night.

Hope everyone is happy and well!

Well now that is a good idea to use the wheelbarrow for a pet bath. John had the neatest place at Campbellton and he sold it because it had ticks there. Well thats what he said but I know he made a good profit. lol Paula

And Tiny looks so shiny. And I'm a poet and didn't know  it.  Why is Rick in Odessa? Working? Will Rick be able to work on the car or will youo have to have it done at a shop? Will Eric be without a car for long? :(  Hope you can enjoy Big Brother.  I don't like it anymore.  
Hugs, Barb

Ohhh la la...a man on his knees and a butt shot too!  My my my!  Hmmm what will Tiny do while momma is at work and daddy is gone?  Have another party and invite creatures again?

have you found ticks on Tiny before? Koda had one tick on him when he was just a pup (literally within days after he came to us; we think he had to have brought it with him from Alabama because in Montana it was winter and cold). It was a scary thing to deal with.

I loved that Rick was creative to give her a bath in the wheelbarrow :) That was a cute picture.

Enjoy your evening :)

ticks, my kids got a tick once from camp. I was freaking out. I'm such a baby with bugs. My mom came over and saved the day. I'm such a wimp sometimes. Now tiny hates baths just like Ozzie. It's always a fight. I sure hope Eric's car get's fixed. I know something good will happen.

Here's my tip for the removal of a tick. Dip a cotton wool bud into either Methylated Spirits or cigarette lighter fuel, then dab onto the tick. It worked every time for me.

Girl, ticks just ain't a problem in Texas! A wheelbarrel bath! That sounds exciting, I am going to have to try that out, all though I think I am not small enough. Don't knock it until you've tried it I suppose.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
