I fucking hate ticks! I found one embedded in my right hip about two and a half months ago after helping my dad out with some yard work and it only just stopped itching about two weeks ago. Nothing itches as badly or for as long as a tick bite. Fortunately, the kind that bit me was a dog tick, not a deer tick, and dog ticks are not generally known to carry disease.
Sorry to hear about your dog. What's the prognosis? Is that something that can be easily treated? Don't know much about how Lyme Disease affects humans or animals.
WTF, like I went running naked thru the woods? Rolling in dog shit? Having sex with a bear? I DON'T KNOW HOW IT GOT DOWN THERE!
Oh c'mon man, just admit you had sex with the damn bear! It's ok, we all need to get a little bear fucking out of our systems every once in a while. It's only natural.
