On ev'ry tick there is a tick upon his back to bite 'em
And on that tick a littler tick
and so Ad Infinitum….

This is the third double tick I have had off my little springers this year! Two of them during a week walking on Arran at the beginning of June and these yesterday. I wonder if they were already a pair when she picked them up or they found her independently and joined up after?

Funnily enough, one (or two) of these fell off a buck a shot last week. First i've seen also. Cant upload the pick tho. Was the same as yours with the second looking like it had just latched on.
