The Internet checklist says it's not fleas, so what is it?

Teeny brown scab-like things on the dog I'm pet-sitting. Picture here.
What did I do wrong, ahh? They first appeared on his ear tips, but I removed them and now they've concentrated on his paws.

They're just kind of 'hanging on' to his hair, not necessarily on his body, though near it. I've been able to just pull them off. I think they make it itchy for him but he also has allergies--he gets allergy shots--so he often bites his paws. Don't remember him scratching at his ears when they were there.
I'm pet-sitting so solutions that would just involve a trip to the local PetSmart would be great. Their vet is really far from me. He's a terrier. I believe he gets Frontline. Googling has been no help, thanks all, I have no experience with this really.
