Vash turns exactly 6 months today… and all was fine and dandy until we noticed a tick on his head. Oh poor boy! I guess Spring is officially here. I used to live in California and for some reason we never had tick problems! Fleas, yes, but ticks, no. I was so shocked and grossed out. They are more creepy, I think. Ugh. Thankfully my sister-in-law was here and she was able to get them off properly…there were two on poor little Vash! One on top of his head and one really near his nose…poor boy! The alcohol was really bothering him, but we had to knock out the ticks and tweezer them out. Then I found one his blankie and not sure if they might have infested our house. UGH! Today is all about cleaning the house, all his blankets and toys and generally just trying to get the icky feeling out. It’s not his fault…I should have thought of preventive medicine earlier on….sigh…let me know if you have any tips on this matter!
Otherwise, I might as well share all the pictures from this past month. So much has happened. He loves hiking in the woods and rolling around in the grass. We got him groomed, shaving off the top hair after his last mud bath, so he looks more Westie and clean now. I think he’s past his teething stage too…finally found some teeth on the ground! He was also in a little local fashion show this month, to help out a friend who owns a pet shop. Then he visited his mom and sister…even though I don’t think they remember him (a bit sad!). I think he’s a happy puppy and growing so fast. I can’t believe he’s already 6 months old…but he’s still our little baby.
