first tick of the season

I have been trying to decide if I want to cut Gibbs down for the summer, and was afraid ticks were going to be an issue since it is SOOOO hot already. Well, after finding the first tick, plus our trip to the beach, I think it is time
Here is his "before" picture. Just thinking of that first cut makes me anxious, but I am sure we will both get through it I will post some "after" pictures when finished.

awww. Gibbs is gorgeous. but he will look like a puppy again. can't wait to see the new do. I keep my kids in a pretty short puppy cut...but still find the occaissional tick on them (or our bed) but I have to go really looking for ticks even in a 1 inch coat. so I am not sure the cut will help all that much with finding them, but it is certainly easier for the beach and I believe it makes them more comfortable in the summer...but there are varying views on this...some say the coat keeps them cooler and protects them from the sun.

can't wait to see more pictures what ever you decide.

Awwww.....Will you be grooming him down? It is really hard to find a tick on Dexter or Jack due to deer ticks are soooooooooooooooooo small!
