Deanna found the FIRST tick on a dog, on Braxton, last night — Tuesday, May 5, 2015, Cinco de Mayo.

We thought it was early BUT judging from my 2014 post we found the first one, in 2014, on April 16. In 2015 we still had snow on the ground.

Yesterday was the first time we had been out for our ‘daily’ run, up/down Prospect Mountain Road, in nearly 12 days given our trip to Arizona. So it was like one-for-one. First run, first tick. So we are back on tick alert given that the two dogs spend a lot of time outside. I check their gums. A trick I learnt from a vet. Pale gums are a sign that they might be losing blood — to a tick! Remember that.
