Barney has never had a tick in eight years - apparently there are lots about this year.

On Saturday i found rather a large on near the top of Barneys tail... When I brushed him this morning it had disappeared...very strange??

We've just come back from walking this morning and I've found another near his eye it's small and brown at the moment but has legs - yuk

They make my skin crawl. I'm fine with most creatures but these rank with slugs on "yukiness"

Off to the vet for a tick remover now I think
