So I've talked before about how bad my babies need to be groomed.. I was trying to put it off so they would look cute all throughout the holidays and especially for a holiday photo.
Clearly God had other plans for us!
Yesterday I posted on my personal FB that I was pretty sure Oreo had a skin tag. I felt something bizarre behind his ear and everyone said not to worry. It was black, which is the color of his skin, so I really didn't think much beyond that.
In the middle of the night I woke up for some water and saw something on the floor. Naturally I picked it up and it was the "skin tag".
.. Except it was a dead tick. Never seen one in my life but Google told me so.
I'm still a little confused why he got a tick on him when we're paying $15/month for both of them to get flea/tick/heart worm medication.
Alas, he's fine. But I still felt better knowing he could go to the groomers and get everything chopped off. I'm still worried about my baby, but at least now I can see his skin better.
Yup, that's a hair clip. Cute, huh?
My little ragamuffins. The groomers were so great and took them at 10AM (2 hours after I called)!
3 hours and $130 later they looked like this..
Sorry, that's a phone photo. They were running like crazy when they came home!
I love Oreo's bandana-- it's red for Veteran's Day. Cocoa has the funniest looking bows. Here's a closeup.
Our little princess!
Some questions that I know will come to my email so I'll answer them now:
-- Don't you have to clean everything? Yes, everything is being washed.
-- Shouldn't you get Cocoa checked? Yes! She got a (expensive) tick bath as well.
-- How did your dog get a tick? I have no idea! Virginia is a common area. Because we haven't had our first hard frost yet, bugs are still around outside.
That will save everyone some time. :) Also! If you have any tick medication that you recommend definitely comment below or email me! xO
