at nana's house we also checked on her dog. although she had recently been dipped we could tell she had a couple of large ticks on her.
if you've never lived in the desert, um ticks are not normal there, they are texas size. it's quite disgusting.
so, yup, the doggy had a couple of fat ticks on her that you could see her black hair wasn't laying properly bc something was in there. i pulled off a couple of the them, but she didn't like that so she walked away from me.
i left her alone & just talked to her from a distance & slowly she returned & i decided it was best just to pet her. so i'm talking to her & stroking her with my hands on either side of her until i notice stuff flying in the air.
at first i thought it was just clumps of hair, maybe even skin, but then i notice little brown ticks moving to the edge of her fur.
the flying things were ticks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i was petting her & giving them wings to fly!
needless to say i made some awful screaming noise & totally scared ME & she was all "what?what?what?" & i had to tell her i was being attacked by flying ticks, to which she had the gall to laugh at me!
so a bit later we were walking around the backyard & i kept on stepping on little sticks & things that would kick back up & touch the back of my leg & force me to scream again...
holy crap what a day
