After our recent episode with the blueberry thief, you might be surprised to hear that Hu-Dad was perfectly ok with our blackberry thief.
Most of you will not remember a previous member of The Herd, Kodiak. The Big Galoot (yes, that was his nickname) had many amazing talents including his flying leap ending on Hu-Dad every morning to start the day. But his most famous skill might have been his ability to strip blackberries from their bushes during hikes. He could easily end a hike with a belly fuller than he started.
Qannik says he is also a fan of blackberries and has learned over the years the art of plucking the berries without grabbing the thorns.
On last night’s senior walk, Q insisted that we stop while he feasted on the delicious berries. After all, the bears will strip the ripe berries as fast as possible, so a canine has to take the opportunity to eat whenever he can.
