Yes, and there is another type, that my house dog gets all over her when she gets loose.She has some type of hunting dog in her blood line, and she sneaks off at every chance she gets and comes home covered from head to toe with those tiny black burrs.They are "the pits",also.
Uggh...I'm with you on this one.
We don't have these here and have to tell you....I am glad.

Burs are definitely not fun to pick out of a pet's fur!
Oh dear! We had a cat come home covered in them one time. Did I mention 'long-haired' cat? ugh.
Love your post, can't be worse than a cactus. Nice close ups.
UGH!! Do you know that I actually moved away from the computer when I saw that thing?! Don't want it anywhere NEAR me!
Randy - You might be right on that one. I really don't want to pick cactus needles out of anyone/anything around here.
Haven't thought of or seen a cockle bur since I was a kid. Don't want to either...ouch!!Is that really your house (farm) pictured on your header. OMG! I am in love.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. Love your pics!
These remind me of what, as a youth, I called sticky birds, or sticky burrs! Also called beggar ticks.
I am not sure, but we have something like that and equally bad!
Cute post : ) I used to put them on one of my little cousins and tell her it was a bee : )Congrats on the new camera!
