Ah Spring!

Spring is here. I know this because the trees are getting that pretty bright green blurriness as the leaves begin to sprout, the pine tree pollen is swirling making my eyes itchy and runny, and the burrs are attacking my sweet Love Man. Not Juannie! Poor Rocky. He looks so sad after being poked, prodded and pulled on as I remove them from his lovely, fluffy fur. This is only the beginning of burr season. So next week he is scheduled for a buzz cut with his stylist in an attempt to keep the burrs at bay.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, poor Rocky. But that's what you get for being so low to the ground, m'boy.

I remember getting them when I'd go raspberry picking. It's funny how the ends are bent for maximum stickability.

He'll look boss with his new haircut, though. Or you can send him up here for awhile. We've still got snow (though it's melting fast.)

Bessie does not have the power of burr attraction that Rocky does even being as low to the ground. I think his silken fur is the lure that burrs cannot resist. And he looks very cute with his haircut. (See icon.)

Oh and I'd be happy to send both of the little bairns to visit their Auntie Weesa. Snow will not slow them down so you'll have a fine time!
