summer clip

summer clip
Yippee Skippy! He has a brand new summer clip. Last night was sooo hot for Skippy - he panted instead of sleeping. He's much more comfortable now with his short haircut.

I do have to make a quick comment on the ticks this year. Terrible! Poor Skippy gets so many of them. I hate stop him from running through the tall grasses. He loves this. But even in relatively urban Belmont, he picked up a dozen yesterday. If we walk in towns to the north or west its worse. Also, he often picks them up in our community garden. Seems like its just a bad year for ticks.

omgosh! yes -- ticks equal major YUCK. It has been a bad year for them so far. I've been pretty lucky, but I'm eying the flea/tick collars. I really don't want these little buggers crawling in the house!

Flea and tick collars are a good idea, especially after a bath and anti flea/tick shampoo. Looks like Skippy's fur is tick and it would be mighty hard to see fleas and ticks against the black fur.
