I live in N.W. Florida too. I have had hounds step on It and running they would get the spines in their front and back feet. Then they would try to get it out themselves and get it in their mouth and on their nose. I would use my fingers to pull the spines out of the hound. If I got any of it in my hands I just thought that was part of having running dogs.

Hey Steve,
I didn't think to mention anything about 'coon dogs (or any dog) getting into the PP's. You're right though, they do run right over them.
