Texas has great rest areas. I took some pictures of this one along Hwy 287.
The grassy areas had signs warning, “Watch for Rattlesnakes”. Nox managed to walk through an area with burrs. We sat at a picnic table in the back and picked out the burrs from Nox’s fur. She was not happy and she even growled and snapped at us.
This was very unusual. Nox is a very polite dog and generally will put up with a lot. Bruce felt very bad for Nox. He pulled out his pocket knife and cut several very tangled burrs from her fur. Nox didn’t mind that at all. This made both of them happy.
Nox was delighted to have the burrs removed. She was able to walk without them sticking into her!
