Last week we took the big dog to the vet for a check up and the little dog went for moral support. As we waited our turn, I noticed what looked like a piece of food stuck to little dog's face. When we were in with the vet, we showed it to him and he said, "Ah, a tick!" as he grabbed it between his fingernails and yanked it out of the dog's face. Nasty ripping noise but the dog didn't mind.
He said as a kid, he worked at a kennel and he quickly gave up on the tweezers and would simply pluck them off the dogs. He told us not to worry about not getting the head because the body would eventually reject it just like a splinter.
Just an FYI.
Oh, and I touched wet cheese today.
