    I have never seen such an autumn for burrs! Poor Sasha, with curly poodle hair, is just covered whenever she comes in from a good run. There's more burr than there is dog!

    I hear you ! We have a Golden Retriever ...what a nightmare ! I usually have him sit next to me as when I'm on the computer or I am watching TV and I pick them off....by friend has a spaniel and she had to have him trimmed because he was so matted...because she had let it go...oh what fun !

    This is the worst year for them we have ever had. My dogs are Great Py/Anatolian and man do their hair collect them and the goats get them also and the horses mane and tails and the cattle have them also...everyone has burrs...Hopefully next year it wont be this bad. And talk about sore fingers getting them out...OUCH!!!
