That is interesting. They even stuck to my jeans and tennis shoes. I am pretty convinced they're from the devil.

Uh....yeah... it's... something all right. lol I have told Mia I love her even when she's ugly.

And to think it looks better in pictures than it does in real life too.

Yeah it's pretty annoying to have to pick them off my sneaker laces while Kim is laughing at me. B****. :P

They don't stick to Mira's body either...it's just the darn feathering. Which I love. At least they comb out for her but yeesh.

And...pictures add 10 pounds of feathering?

Well, maybe we've found something. How to make yourself look younger- cut off all your ear hair.

The worst... the absolute WORST is when it's cold enough to be wearing mittens or gloves, and you manage to get one out of their coat but then it sticks to your glove/mitten. Sadface.

Payton somehow emerged from our last hike in the woods this summer with a bunch of those in his mane. I don't even know where he picked them up. One minute he was fine, the next, burrs EVERYWHERE. Luckily I was able to brush them out okay. Ugh.

I agree, she does look like a puppy again, LOL.

Poor Lady! It really doesn't look too bad to me, but I haven't known many Papillons, so I'm really not a good judge!

I've encountered those burs on the beach. My foot was hurting with every step, so I finally sat down and took off my flip flop only to find my food was bleeding! One of those spike-burs from hell was stuck to the bottom of my flip flop and stabbing me with every footfall!!

Oh god, those are the bane of my existence. Rosey gets them so matted in her fringe, it's ridiculous.

I used to cut them out, but I found this comb that works WONDERS. It like, has blades, and just cuts right through the burr and separates the coat.

ETA: Oh, it's just called a dog matt breaker.

We have those here--they're sticky besides the prickers, too. Elsie ran through some bushes at a creek and came up with over 30 once. I counted.

I sat there on the dirt road and pulled them all out slowly. It took almost a half an hour.

The pliers trick is something I learned from Setter people. Apparently once you crush them with the pliers, the tiny hooks disintegrate into little pieces of plant matter and cease to "pull" - then it's just like brushing out dead leaves. To make it even easier, apply Cowboy Magic on the affected area and the burrs just slide out, with minimal to no damage to the coat.

I didn't believe it until my friend's setter got into a bunch of cockleburrs, and we crushed the burrs with pliers and they miraculously were able to be brushed out easily. Darndest thing I've ever seen!
