Ticks on the dog
I know I have to get the ticks off the dog. DH is in north Alabama working on our boat and I really shouldn't wait for him to get back.
("Welcome home, now get the ticks off the dog" isn't a particularly good welcome.)
So, is there an easy way? Pliers, leather gloves, knock the dog out with a 2x4? The hay fields are over five feet high, so she's going to be getting gobs of ticks until the fields are cut. Hay's so high I can't see her tail when she goes vole hunting.
You can only imagine how much I don't want to do this.
