PSA: Wish I had known this when I was 10. When picking cockleburrs out of the fur of a fluffy dog, turns out if you can cut the burr open, the little pieces are way easier to remove than the whole unitary sphere. Slice it with the blade of a scissor and it practically disintegrates, and can be removed with a fairly normal slicker brush. And the seeds inside are actually slippery; the trick with them is not being squicked (they look like bugs) and then keeping them from escaping all over the house.

Of course it's totally possible that this is a different kind of burr than I was picking out of collies in Syracuse 45 years ago.
