It’s that time of year again, when plants are springing up from the ground all over the place. Sure, sure – you call them weeds, but I call them medicine! Dandelion, Japanese Knotweed, Purslane, Pineapple Weed, Sheep Sorrel, Red Clover, Evening Primrose, Comfrey, Sweet Leaf, Juniper, Burdock, Yarrow, Wild Carrot, and more – all of which have medicinal properties appropriate for dogs.
We’ve done some herb walks on the Bike Path in past years, and this year I’m planning a regular schedule of them on the 4th Saturday of each month. If you’re interested in learning about native plants that can help your dog (or you!), come along. Bring your curiosity, your questions, a notebook and pen, and your dog! And $10.
In the event of rain, come on Sunday.
