I had forgotten the check for critters. Yes, it's tick season here right now.
So does Ds, being that he works in the woods, or at least outside on properties, mostly.
The Benadryl is certainly playing a part in it, but, as you say, like Tango he's a black dog, and that's just not the color to be in the heat of a summers day.
But, I know the 'black dog drill,' being that, for some reason, so many of my dogs have been black, or mostly black. *Ticking off on fingers.* Tango, Beyorne, Bruiser, Gil, Mitsy...you get the idea!
