The return of the Huckleberry Hounds

Category: misc. rambling | Posted: Tue Oct 09, 2007 5:29 pm

Some of you may remember this story from before I restarted my blog. For the new members and to refresh the memories of the older members I'll retell the story of the Huckleberry Hounds.
Here's the pic of the hounds:

Sadly Bert is not a member any longer. I sure do miss that boy! :(
Ok now here is the story of the Huckleberry Hounds:
When we were clearing our property to have our house moved in we found a huckleberry tree among the grown up brush. I love huckleberries! We decided the tree would definitely stay. A few years ago I noticed our dogs out by the tree scrounging around. I walked out to the tree and realized they were eating the ripe huckleberries that had fallen to the ground!:) It's the funniest thing to watch them, so that is how they received the name of the Huckleberry Hounds!:)I go out and pick handfuls and feed them to my dogs and they love it. This year I had to clear around the tree because when we mowed we would leave some of the growth around the tree for bunnies and birds to hide in but this year I cleared all that out because it had gotten way out of hand. With all of it cleared out the dogs have plenty of room this year to enjoy the berries. They are in hog heaven,ahem... I mean doggie heaven! LOL

It's lovely to see the Huckleberry hounds again Julie!! I've never tasted a huckleberry but if the dogs enjoy them so much then there must be something special about them.

I sure miss Bert being in that picture, but I'm sure he was looking down and wagging his tail in doggie heaven.

Thank you for the comments everyone!
Bert definitely was a special guy, and I guess I'll always miss him.
