All Those Paw-Crippling Stickers

Sandbur Stickers on Louis in Boulder City, NevadaI have a rental dog. Well, it’s more like he’s “on loan” while my friend is on her honeymoon. His name is Louis and she’s blindly entrusted me with his care, forgetting that it’s been years since I’ve known better than to walk a dog through those pesky sticker plants along the edge of the golf course!

As it happens, Fan Cheryl Vanier recently sent me some photos she took of a big sticker culprit this year (very bottom photo), thinking that I might be interested in sharing it with ya’ll. It goes by many names, in seems: goathead, devil’s thorn, bullhead, puncture fine, etc and you’ll find it in everything from your shoes to your bike and stroller tires.

But when I told her about my trouble with Louis, she sent another photo and THAT’S the stinker sticker right there! It’s a grass called ‘sandbur’ and often grows on the edges of grassy areas. Without it’s stickers, it’s pretty difficult to identify – but if you can (carefully) pull it before it drops its seeds, it won’t grow more of the same. As for Louis…I think it’s time he learned about the treadmill, no?
