I just wanted to thank everyone who chimed in while I was freaking out during our vacation about our dogs getting ticks, something completely unknown to me. Each dog has a couple of scabs and furless circles where we pulled the ticks out, but neither seem worse for the wear. I thought I would post some pictures from our trip to show how much Tessa loved the ocean. We couldn't keep her out of it. It was like she could smell it from 100 yards away even when she couldn't see it and would just start running towards it (the water was 63 degrees, but she didn't care). Cooper preferred to dig a hole in the sand and go to sleep.
Hard to believe that last Thursday I was sitting on the beach getting a tan and this morning I woke up and it was snowing.
