Thanks trophyhunt. As long as it doesn't become/turn stage 2 we should be good in a few months. Also you are correct not every tick has it and it's still not a common thing in (WA) unlike east coast.
keep us posted please.

I have a buddy with it down in Arkansas. Took him over a year to get over it. It is the only reason why I no longer kill every opossum I see. (They are quite delicious BTW)  they are immune to that disease and Hoover up ticks like a Kirby vacume cleaner.

Found a few on myself after some roaming around near Ellensburg yesterday.  Couldn't find any on my dog. Brushed him really well and didn't find any.    Note to self... Black dogs make it more difficult!

Was out near Wenatchee and have pulled at least 10 ticks off my dog and had to have another 2 removed by the vet. Crazy!!

Pulled ticks off my 2 dogs for over an hour last Saturday. I had 5 "bites" which is strange because each one felt like a bee sting. Nearly everyone says you can't feel them but I sure did.  I quickly scraped them off with my fingernail. Near cle elum.
