Minnie era inmensamente delgada y estuvo repleta de garrapatas./estuvo cubierta de garrapatas.

My husband picked her up and then we put her in our vehicle.

Mientras mi esposo conducía, yo quitaba las garrapatas.

When we got home, we gave her a bath and a good meal.
Después de llegar a casa, la bañamos y le dimos una buena comida.

After she ate, she took a long nap in one of our kennel crates.
Después de comer, ella se echó una siesta larga en una de nuestras jaulas para perros./en un de nuestros cajónes del perro.

I know why you corrected drive to drove, but why change estuvo to estaba? Is it because repleta de garrapatas is a description, not an action? Wouldn't the same apply to cubierta de garrapatas? Does that need to be changed to estaba too?

I meant that estaba should be used for both phrases, sorry.
You should use estaba in the sentence for the same reason you used era. They are both descriptions.

It's OK, by the way, to not use estaba at all: ... delgada, cubierta de ...
I prefer cubierta, but both can be used.
