Hope you all have a good 4th of July! Ours was nice, though Pike struggles with fireworks. :/ May have to look into anti-anxiety medication for New Years.
Anyway, last week we went blueberry picking! There's a little local places about 15 minutes from home that has a beautiful (and plentiful!) patch of blueberries, and they're raised organic. While not technically advertised as a dog friendly place, the owners just smiled and said nothing at Nola trotting along beside me, and I was careful to keep her away from the lower branches, so they were fine with it. Having a quiet, well behaved small dog often opens doors that'd otherwise be closed!
They handed us some adorable metal buckets, directed us to three rows, and then left us to ourselves. Best kind of picking!
It was very hot, even at 7:30 in the morning, so we didn't stay long. Still, we had around 12lbs of berries!
Nola is a big fruit eater, and next to watermelon, blueberries are her favorite. She was so excited to see all the little snacks littered on the ground, and I'm fairly certain she thinks they were dropped just for her.
She behaved so well, despite a bunch of kids and some traffic. Such a content little dog! This is her second time U-picking; the first was in Georgia last fall. Click here to read about that! It's so great to support local small businesses and farmers, and get some deliciously healthy food, too!
