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.
Never mind the ‘Cinco de Mayo‘ Google Doodle. Google, as I pointed out last year, has never done one. Probably because it commemorates a war victory and Google prefers to stay clear of subject matter of that nature.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
Here, learn something about ‘Cinco de Mayo’ from this short, but good, YouTube video.
And before we conclude this merry Cinco de Mayo post ENJOY this merry jig.
