And I'm too fucking scared to pull it out. 1) I hate anything insect-like, because I basically have a vagina. Seriously, I hate them. 2) I know pulling out ticks is dangerous, because if you leave the head or anything still inside (which is definitely possible), your dog can get a disease of some sort. I'm clumsy as fuck. My option right now is to wait for Mum as she's awesome at this stuff. Any of you ever pulled out ticks from a dog, or yourself? I hate leaving that blood-sucking jobber inside my dog though. Soon as it's out, I'm gonna let my dog kick its ass before I burn it.
