We have had a few days without too much rain , so have been outside trimming tree branches Making the most of it . Pup had a tick on him today so I put the treatment on them both dogs again . He has gotten used to me looking through his hair and pulling ticks off with the forceps , I think the word tick he now knows . they can paralyze and kill dogs here so we have to keep alert . I like to think if they have some dingo blood in the dogs they can have some immunity . Although I wouldn’t bet on that . wet again outside now , we had a couple really hot days this week , so icy poles from the freezer and sits in the shade with short spurts of action between .
