Monday Mischief

It is apple season here and local pick your own orchards have apples available for only 50 cents a pound. Yum!  So, with fresh apples coming in, I decided to look over the old apples and check for spots, bruises,etc and share with the tenant's horse, sheep and chickens.  

As always, when there are six dogs, there is never a shortage of "help", especially when there is potential food.


Brook initially tried to get an apple out of the box when the flaps were folded in. It was funny watching the always determined little blind and partly deaf dog desperately trying to get into the cardboard box of apples. Once I opened the box and began sorting, she was very excited. The apples beside the box were ones that I was going to pass out to the other animals.

Molly watched the whole apple sorting process with great interest and when the opportunity presented itself, she grabbed one and went outside. Then didn't seem to know what to do with it.

"Now what?"

Brook, of course, settled in to eat hers right away.


  1. Well they do say an apple a day....! Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. We haven't tried apples......hmmmmmm.

  3. So cute! Rita's not into apples, but our beagle Bailey used to love apple season. We lived by the university when we first had her, and there was a huge apple tree at the top of a hill. Apples would fall off the tree, and we'd roll them down the hill for her to chase. She'd catch them and take a bite or two. A game AND a snack - perfect for a beagle!
