In my world
I found two ticks already on one of our cats! I bring our Cavaliers and our Cattle/Beagle cross to Dogwood Animal Retreat on RT 3 in Searsmont. Gypsy’s so much happier clipped down; it’s like she has new life in her, so I asked Laurel to shave Gypsy. Spring has sprung for her! I left Scout full, (for now) and Sammy’s happy being clean and shiny. With the mud drying up and fleas and ticks out, it’s a good time for a grooming. If you have any questions, call Laurel at Dogwood Animal ReTreat at 342-3088.
