Welcome to NGA, @Lynnazazel666 .

It does appear to be burdock... if so, and if you happen to have a long-haired dog, destroy it! (or at least don't let it go to seed...)

Hi Lynnazazel666, Welcome!

I agree with others; it looks like a variety of Arctium or Rumex, commonly called Dock, here are some from our database for comparison:
Common Burdock (Arctium minus)
Great Burdock (Arctium lappa)
Western Dock (Rumex occidentalis)

You don't say where (city or country) this is growing for us to possibly narrow it down with a more exact identification but you can do a google search for both Arctium and Rumex with your city or state to find out which ones are common in your area.

Why do you say that about a long haired dog? I assume it's toxic? How? O.O

I think she was probably referring to the burrs getting caught in the fur of long haired pets: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Appparently you have never tried to remove burs from a long haired dog's coat.

They have a pretty deep root system and will re-grow if some of the root gets left behind. If you repeatedly dig it out it will eventually be gone. Or you could spray it with Roundup to totally kill the plant.

As far as the long-haired dogs go... trying to get burs out of them is toxic to one's mental health! Hilarious!

She's trying to get rid of the Burdock plants.

We have 2 long haired golden retrievers and I can't imagine trying to get burrs like that out of their coats!

Right! It makes perfect sense now.

I would be inclined to treat them with a herbicide.
