Weed Identification

Lawn Weed

Anonymous added on June 8, 2011 | Answered

My dogs are getting into a plant the has arrow-shaped seed that is barbed and is on a 1/4 to 1/2 inch tightly spiral stem. I have not been able to identify the plant and have no idea what I'm looking for besides the seeds. My yard is fairly big but is mowed often.
