Today We Picked 10 Ticks Off Our Harrier, Braxton!

by Anura Guruge


Yes, that is ‘Braxton’ our 7.5-year old Harrier. Yes, basically a bigger beagle. A British hunting dog.
Notice that unlike a Beagle he has no black.


If you count the ticks in the bowl it only comes to 9. I know. But, I picked one, straight from his nose before I brought him into the house. I needed help to remove the rest. Deanna picked the 9 above. She has better nails.

This is crazy. Early in the season & I did NOT take him in the woods. He walked on the road — albeit a dirt road.

Yes, we do spray stuff on them. Nothing seems to work & trust we we have tried so many things. Last night I ordered ‘K9 advantix II‘ from Amazon. That should be here by mid-week.
