Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

The Dogs Take a Short, Hot Walk Out Back

What some old dogs do when the temperature is over 90 and they get taken on a short walk out in the field:

Sunny, the youngest dog at nine years, likes to bask in the sun.

Pappy is an old male Papillon, but not too old to do his male dog duty marking his yard.

Glory is checking to see if the blackberries are ripe enough to eat. She loves them and will eat them right off the stalk when they're ready enough to pass her sweetness test.

Not yet. But almost.

This was taken last week. This week some berries are dark. Glory will be helping herself by the end of the week.

Your blackberries must be gentler than ours are! Ours have the most wicked thorns and are not to be messed with. We often joke that they form the infra-structure of our state.......

We used to have a dog who would eat wild strawberries, black raspberries, blackberries, and grapes. We called her our fruitarian dog.
