Knott's Berry Farm

Before Truffie went into season, and the crazyness that is Halloween started, I took Truffie out to eat at Knott's Berry Farm. It is a local amusement park that follows this whole wild west theme. Every year at Halloween they turn the park into a huge Haunted House with mazes and extra staff dressed up to scare you. Rather cool, but as half of S. Cali goes to this event we steer clear of it during Oct. But some how I digress from the topic at hand which as you might guess is Chicken. Yes Chicken, the park was started by some couple who invented Boysenberries (a cross between two different berries which escapes me now), the wife made jam from the berries the husband grew. She started serving fried chicken to hungry people, they added a theme show to entertain, a hotel, ect.... the rest is chicken history. Growing up a friend of mine refused to eat the chicken for the longest time. Turns out they had pet chickens, who as chickens will do had other chickens and pretty soon things got out of control. Instead of giving away said chickens, their father told them he took them down to Knott's Berry farm and let them lose in a lake......right by the chicken restaurant.  

Anyway personal pets notwithstanding, the chicken here is good, the biscuits are even better, so once in a while we will head on down. It is great for the pups to see the commotion of the park without actually going in. This huge roller coaster swoops down right along the side of the parking lot. I usually start the pups watching the coaster from across the lot and gradually get closer, I know we are ready to move on when the pups give me that 'I'm sooo bored' look.' Some times it is hard to tell the bored look from the 'please not another picture look.' as you might be able to tell from the above picture.

One day - I will have a lab that likes water AND taking pictures. That's not too much to ask for is it?
