Sand Burrs

Posted Monday, November 19, 2007, at 1:17 PM

While tramping around inspecting the farm prior to making an offer to purchase, our Golden Retreiver Casey found the sand burrs. Now I remember these little buggers from being a kid visiting my grandparents in Holt county, and in more recent years on upland bird hunting trips. As most people already know, you don't want them sticking you very badly...they sting. Unfortuntely our dogs fur seems to be one of the dang things favorite targets.

Margie was emailing family details of our propective purchase, and mentioned that we will need to try and spray, dig, burn, or something else for the sand burrs so the dog doesn't get covered constantly. Brian's native Nebraska aunt Wilma replyed..."You don't get rid of them, you avoid them".

Nuts! Not the response I wanted.
