That's my dog Maggie Mae. She's a tick magnet. :) Yesterday we took Mags to Silver Lake in Haymarket (a recent discovery by my folks) for a romp. Little did we know that she would return home covered in ticks. The grass wasn't even that high, but somehow she managed to attract every blood-sucking bug of the land. When we got home, mom took a nap with Maggie in the bed, and then mom even found one on herself. Our evening would have made the perfect new music video for Brad Paisley's song "Ticks."
