ahah makes sense, i can blame the dogs for bringing it in then! Thinking about it if it's those large sticky ball things we do have a fair few of those around here.

If it gets into gardens it can be very hard to eradicated, for the many seeds that it sheds will take root next year. It grows quickly. The burrs are held far apart ready to catch on anything passing, such as walkers clothing.
