Hazelnut Sunday

Not only is there an overwhelming amount of blackberries in my park, but there are also hazelnuts - on trees! We're off in search of some nutty goodness, but first, nature calls...

That's Mt. Hood in the background, and bicyclists closer in. The bicyclists make me crazy, it's hard to use the full extent of my flexi leash as they're always swarming like obnoxious bees. I have to walk right next to mama, rather than my usual custom of checking out things far ahead of her. Most of the bicyclists are nice, but some are really mean, stupid, and self-centered. There are always a few bad apples in the bunch, right?

So lets take a little detour into the forest. Where I can commune with nature, and find a good place to poop.

Ah success. A tree full of hazelnuts. Go get 'em dad!

I'm down here dad, just in case you drop something.

Lemme get that one for ya...

Got it!

The bounty - two cargo pant pockets full of beautiful hazelnuts.

Time to head home so you and mama can open them. Beware of bicyclists!

Scottie the 'cutie' said... that's what fresh hazelnuts look like! The ones I've seen here are the ones already opened...they look so cute! Thanks for the nature lesson, Bogart! You sure get loads of great walkies!

You guys look like you're doing great... just living off the land! What's your dad going to do with the hazelnuts? I'm totally interested.

Goober love,

Woof! Hullo, Bogart!
Methought you're my big brother Bogart. But no, you are the handsome devil who looks like an angel!

Hail, all Bogarts!
