My brudder Sarge wrote about the stickies he got into out in our back yard but he didn't mention what happened today. Mom was upset with the stickie weeds because when Sarge got into the stickie weeds and dad had to cut his tail to get them out,that made mom REALLY mad at the stickie weeds. She said I'm going out there and find those weeds and cut them down and burn them up. Yup mom, lets go show those weeds who is boss around this back yard! So out we went and dad came along to help. Mom dragged in the yard waste container and got some tools out and started in on the war against the stickie weeds. Dad, well he got side tracked cutting down branches from trees back there. Then we heard mom say "here they are! I found them!" She cut them down and threw them in the container and kept looking for more, when she found more they went in the container too. Finally she couldn't find any more so she decided to help dad, who was still cutting tree branches. When the container was full, dad left to put it back so the garbage men can come and empty it out. Mom got some bags out and planned on working a little longer. After a few minutes here comes mom, FULL of stickie weeds all over her shirt, (hee hee, she was covered with them worse than Sarge was!) Dad asked her how she got them all over her and she said "I don't know, I was cutting tree branches and I didn't even see them". She said "how am I going to get all these off my shirt" Dad told her she's going to have to pick them all off. Boy oh boy, mom is SERIOUSLY mad at the stickie weeds now! Looks like the stickie weeds won the war but if I were a stickie weed, I'd be finding me a new back yard to live in!

We do ongoing battle with those nasty stickie weeds here, too, UGH!
After we cut/pulled up as many as we could, we started mowing them down regularly so they can't reproduce themselves by making more stickers...sigh...for evfurry one plant we get rid of, there seem to be hundreds to follow, Yikes!
But at least I can go back there now and only get one or two and not dozens...
Weed killer helps, but growlmy isn't keen on all those chemicals.

Mom hates those things too. I get them between my toes cause I have really long hair on my feet. Mom gets upset with me on walks if I step of the street. I don't like mom messing between my toes. Woof Luddy.

Oh yeah, Mr Jack Freckles, mom would love to use weed killer but she says she can't because we play back there. Her and dad looked all over for pet safe weed killer but they have given up, it seems there is no such thing. Dad read that hot water and viniger will kill weeds but it doesn't work very well. Looks like moms war on the stickies will have to continue until we get frost! Hey Ludwig, that must be awful to get stickies all over your feets! I only got into them once this year and it wasn't even in my yard! It was that day we were at a campground, mom put me on a tie out right in the middle of a patch of stickies! BOL!
