This could almost be burrrr (as in cold) season, since we're getting pretty close to frost some nights now, but I am referring to those sharp, prickly, sticky, messy burrs that get into the feathering of our beautiful dogs.
Chester happened to find a whole bunch of burrs on our run at the dog park today. He got some little black sticky ones - some small sharp, prickly green ones - and some big, brown sharp,prickly ones. A real nice combination of messy stuff.
Chester loves to have his ears brushed and fiddled with, but other than the top of his back and his ears, he hates being brushed and there is nothing worse than having someone (even me) touch, let alone brush his tail. Of course, his long tail attracted the most burrs.
So - like it or not, we spent the last hour and a half removing at the burrs he picked up today.
Maybe I should shave him short until burr season has past.
