I had a little itch on my side and I scratched but felt something there so I told my DH to look and IT WAS A TICK! He got the head out and burned it. YIKES

Not sure where I picked up a tick, I had been to town after work today. Not near any bushes. Unless it was crawling on my chicken and I was hugging her as I took her from garage to her box in the barn.

I've had horse, dog and children get ticks, but that was my first tick. It itched first, and luckily when I went to scratch and felt something I asked my DH to lood rather than me just scratch it off cuz I did not know it was going to be a tick, I thought zit thing or something. Then I could feel it like biting, luckily it was still very very tiny so it had just got there! They are creepy, to say the least

I think dog ticks are ugly and make me want to heeve. gotta watch out for lyme disease. My friend has it and has to get a shot yearly. Maybe you need to wear some frontline. it smellls good and keeps away them dirty bugs lol

Ewww, I don't know what kind of tick it was. But my trip to town today was to dr cuz I was sick a couple weeks ago and I am now really tired so I was going for a check up and was given antibiotics, so maybe, it can kick any Lyme disease in the butt right away
