SusieB loves cherries
Today I found my first reasonably priced cherries of the season. Normally I’d have eaten tonnes of them by now but they’ve been scarce and very expensive so I’ve not indulged and I’ve not been able to introduce Susie-Belle to one of my favourite fruits.
But, all that changed at lunchtime when I sat down with a large bowl full
She sat beautifully and patiently at my feet, her loving eyes fixated on me. I didn’t have the heart to continue munching without sharing so took a break and let her settle back into her bed whilst I went and researched whether they were ok for dogs. I know most fruits are, but am aware grapes aren’t so thought best to check it out before seeing whether she’d enjoy a cherry or two.
It seems that as long as they don’t eat the stones, they’re fine.
She certainly liked their smell, so I did what she wanted me to and hand fed her a fat share of stoned cherries.
Being the true gourmet she is, she declined the odd slightly underripe piece I tried to slip past her quality control centre (she can certainly quickfire spit a squashed up cherry out of her gorgeous lips a long way over my cream mat) preferring the sweetest, ripest pick of the crop.
Renae tasted a few pieces, spat them out, left them for her sister, then decided just as the last cherry was being shared between us all that she might like them after all. I shall have to go find some more tomorrow girls won’t I?
