Sometimes you eat the vulture, sometimes the vulture eats you.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who has had a dick tick, and not the only one whose mom had to help in the removal...

Reading that article I know understand why there are so many stories of ticks sucking dicks. I also now undertand why i had one on my eyelid, I imagine the blood vessels are close to the service of the skin. I always thought they went for your hair to remain protected, maybe there are a bunch of easy to get blood vessels in your skull?

I knew the ticks were supposed to bad this year, but they were worse than expected on an overnight trip jaunt on Ozark Trail.

I didn't get to permethrin coat all my clothes - which wouldn't work anyway unless I wore a burkha.
Typically I don't mind plucking off a few ticks, but this was miserable. I was taking frequent peaks in my britches, thanks to this thread.

Poor Big Galoot was chemmed up, and he still came home loaded with them. winter is better than this [expletive].

Yeah. The absolute worst part of finding a tick is not feeling comfortable for another couple days....I'm not 100% certain I don't have one until enough time has passed that the thing would have ballooned up so big that he'd fall off. Which blows my mind that happens.

One wouldn't bother me much. I'm talking close to 100 so plucked off my old dog. Dozens off myself. Horses use trail I was on, so the ticks are just awful. Tick problem was compounded by the dog struggling mightily on the trail-I forget he's old, and lost his trail paws and endurance. So every time we stopped to recover - the ticks just hopped aboard. So I had to keep pushing him on toward heat exhaustion.

Even though I know better about big dogs and heat - I should know better. It was the cruel. Labs are so damn loyal they go until they drop to have fun and hang with you. Poor Big Galoot.

I won't go back near that place until it is wonderfully freezing.
