Sticker Burrs

Lately, I spend 99% of my life picking sticker burrs out of my furbabies' fur.
Well, I guess 99% of my at-home life.
It's more like 15 minutes per animal.
And really only 2 of the animals.
The cats don't go outside.
So that leaves Duke & Hank.
Uh, anyway...

Hank doesn't mind having the sticker burrs pulled out of his fur.
He's a bit of an attention whore.
And picking sticker burrs = attention.
It's the lab in him.
Plus, he has straight hair, so it's not painful for him.

Duke is a different story.
He has curly hair.
And he's low to the ground, so he gets more burrs in his fur.

I totally rhymed right there.
It sounds like it could be a song.
Apple bottom jeans, burrs in the furrrrr...

Uh, anyway...
Duke hates having the burrs pulled from his fur.
He acts like he's being tortured.
I swear if he could, he'd call the SPCA on us.
Or 911.
Or Seal Team 6.
But the poor baby doesn't have fingers to dial the phone.

And we give him treats afterward, so he loves us again.

Haha, you made my day with the song. :) Poor thing! That can't be fun!

My girls get them all the time. What's bad is when our long haired gal gets them in her feet.

Your pups are so cute, I totally just talked in baby talk to my computer screen at them.
