    Black Walnuts and a Walk in the Woods with the Dogs!

    Black Walnuts
    While walking in the woods with the dogs, I came across a black walnut tree and many, many black walnuts on the ground. It was located near the river, but not on the riverbank. It was between a sunny field and the woods on the riverbank. This is a relatively rare tree to find these days.

    At first, I thought the large green fruits on the ground were those of the osage-orange tree, but they were not pebble-skinned, so later I asked D. what he thought they could be, and he immediately thought of black walnuts. A check of our tree books confirmed it.

    D. said that as a boy, his father would buy huge bags of black walnuts for the family, and they would all enjoy them. Sometimes they ate just the nuts, and other times his mother would bake cakes or other desserts with them. They have a very strong taste, not mild like the English walnuts we buy in the grocery stores, so you really have to acquire a taste for black walnuts.

    Spanky Wants to Go On a Ride in the Car!

    Like all dogs, and especially Jack Russells, Spanky loves to go on a ride, and has very convincing methods of letting this be known!

    Spanky Enjoys Watching the Westminster Dog Show!

    Here is a great photo I was able to take when Spanky became so agitated and interested in the Westminster Dog Show that was on television one evening. He growled and barked at the dogs, and watched them parade around and be judged on their conformation.

    Dan and Spanky Singing Their Favorites Songs Together!

    Dan and Spanky singing their hearts out together! We have discovered that Spanky has the most wonderful, deep and resonant singing voice - some would call it a howl, but it really is a type of bonding song that dogs use with their pack.
