Berry Picking

Woooo Furiends

Me and Mom went berry picking today.

This is what we were looking for, low bush cranberries! They can be kinda hard to spot, cuz alot of red berries grow around here and some of them are yucky!!

Mom makes jam and muffins and stuff with the berries! Last year there was zillions of them around. We had to look a little harder this year. Cranberries do not like it when we have a hot, dry summer....neither does Mom come to think of it!

We wasn't looking for this, but we found some! Woo Hoooo, it's moose poop! We didn't see the moose today though; we never do when Mom has her camera!
Daisy likes berry picking. She gets to lay around alot! Mom always takes dogs with her when she goes berrypicking...cuz bears really like berries! We probably wouldn't be much help with a bear, but at least we would let her know one is coming!
I don't like laying around as much as Daisy. I was hunting mousies and chasing squirrels!
Mom got enough berries to do some baking. She already made two cranberry loaves and she froze some to use in the winter time. Tomorrow we might go check out a different cranberry picking patch!
Mom says I need to go to the lake.....I sorta rolled in some of that moose poop! All my doggy friends think I smell devine, but Mom says I need a bath or I'm sleeping outside!!
WOOOOOOOOOOOO

We don't like hot, dry summers either like we had last year, but we had a cool, wet one this year - much more fun.

Never eaten Moose poop, but it sure sounds like a delicacy.

We pick our cranberries from a bag in the cupboard, maybe yur mom should check her cupboards too. Then again, woo do things differently up in the Yukon. Like that moose poo, we don't have any of that here, but it sounds delightful!

Cranberries are very tasty! I hope you can find more.

Hahaha!! Rolling in poop is fun! I rolled in some deer poop a week ago and got it nice and smeared all over my face and neck. Mom and dad were not happy and I got one of those stupid bath's when I got home. Oh well, it was fun when I did it!!

Tehya, you didn't roll in moose poop, honeybunny! I bet you don't smell too nice, at least in your mom's opinion. You'll have to go for a swim.

I love Daisy's happy face and I love your tail.

Your fan,
Elyse
