Default Tick?

I am currently house-sitting a cut little 12 year old beagle mix, and just
found a black bump on his ear. I first thought it was a tick, but it seems
to have hair growing from/through it. Is this a tick?
It is black, the size of a pea, and has no inflammation around it.

The pup's owners are in another time zone, so they ain't awake yet

any help appreciated

Ticks have no hair, and i have never seen a black tick, Ticks also are
attached by their very small head, and next to the head you should be able
to spot very small legs.
To me it sounds like it is just a wart or small fat filled tumour, probably
nothing to be alarmed about. You can keep an eye on it to see if it grows or
if it bothers the dog, Old dogs often get these small growths here and
there. We used to have them removed from our senior dog once a year when she
was sedated because of teeth cleaning, but there is no real need to remove
them if they aren't located in a place where they bother the dog. We had
them removed from our dog simply because they didn't look nice =)
