Ten days ago I brought home a new puppy. Seven days ago he went to the vet and had his anti flea/heartworm treatment.

The past few days, I have noticed this small bug (see photos) crawling on me (a few different times) and this morning around the dog himself. I've had other dogs around the house in the past and recently but have never experienced this kind of small insect so I am curious as to what it is/ where it is originating from. The new puppy, of course, goes outside to my small patch of grass behind the house to relieve himself.

Can this be a flea, tick, mites ??? Should I just continue to wash all his bedding/towels??

Many thanks!
