Mischief Monday - Bush Burrs

Phod want deep into the bush on our property on the weekend. I think he was probably tracking deer and eating deer poop. He didn't come back right away but I could see him. I think he wasn't coming back because he was full of burrs!  He wasn't thrilled about having them removed. 

A few from his side

The burr/fur pile

Thank you for all your POTP, thoughts and prayers for the Big Guy. He is holding his own. For those who asked it was an abdominal aorta aneurysm. 


Tomorrow is Blogville election day. Our comments will be moderated until then. Be sure to come back and vote! One vote per blog!

  3. Ugh burrs are nasty.
    POTP for the Big Guy. He's very lucky to survive that. An abdominal aorta aneurysm killed our nephew at age 17. I hope your Big Guy makes a complete recovery.

  4. wow that are evil little buggers... I fortunately have short furs, butt the mama feels with you BIL Phod, she is a longhaired breed and it needed 87 courses and 87 hours the de-burr her :o) hugs and potp to your grampy...

  5. Try getting them out of a wire-haired fox terrier's thick coat...
    Cheers! Gail.

  6. Ouch. I had some of those wicked things not too long ago on my back side. Mom got them out and OMP I squealed to the high heavens. I feel your pain my sweet friend. My prayers go out to the Big Guy ((Hogs and Snout Kisses)) XOXO - Bacon

  7. The election will be soooo exciting! I sent you guys an email just so you know....

  8. Yuck, having all those stickers removed doesn't look like fun!

  9. Oh Phod, I feel your pain! When we went to Texas last summer I got covered in them...and it hurt like the dickens when Mama was brushing them out of me!

  10. oh dear Phod the burrs look like they are a mess to get off....inquiring minds want to know if deer poop tastes like chicken, fish or beef?
    We are so glad the Big Guy is maintaining

    Prayers and good wishes that the Big Guy keeps holding his own.

  12. Yikes! We have burrs too and boy do they OUCH! Glad you were able to get them all out.

  13. We know those things hurt! You better listen and no more deer poops. Was it good? Did the poops taste like chicken?

  14. Ouch! I bet those weren't comfortable!

  17. We are so glad your dad is doing better, we have been thinking about you all. stella rose

  18. Oh! Ouch, P. Getting those yanked and cut out cannot be very much fun. I guess the deer poop must've been pretty delicious to be worth it...

    Love and licks,

  19. OUch! those burrs look nasty. We will be back to cast our vote!

  20. Burrs are no fun at all, not for the human or the furry!!! Phod, stay out of the bush:)

    Continues prayers and good thoughts for the big guy and for you.

  21. Oh no, Phod! I have had that happen to me before and now mom keeps doggie conditioner available in case in happens again.

    Love ya lots♥

  22. Wow, I bet that hurt a little! I bet the deer poops were worth it though. BOL I'm all ready for the election tomorrow and thanks for hosting our polling place.

  23. We scotties don't like those burrs pulled out either. Some seasons, it is a loooonnnng job.

  24. Oh Phod a small price to pay for a little fun with deer poop. We're glad to hear the Big Guy is doing well and are keeping our paws crossed for him.

  25. It's all fun and games until the peeps bring out the comb.

    Aroo to you,

  26. I'm glad the big guy is holding his own. I used to have a Samoyed when I lived on a small farm many years ago, and he'd occasionally escape and come back completely covered in burrs.

    I don't envy you the removal. Keeping your family in my thoughts.


  27. I'm so glad that the big guy is holding his own. Poor Phod - that's no fun at all.

  28. Those burrs are the worst thing for matting up your fur. We affens don't get too many but the schnauzers are always picking them up in their leg hair and beards! Paws crossed for the Big Guy - nose licks and love from Moth xx
