Charlie's Favorite Part of Summer

Our neighbors have a momentously large cherry tree, chock-full of Charlie treats* that are beginning to ripen and fall into our back yard. I just wish Charlie'd stem and pit them first!



*Note: Fortunately Charlie doesn't, himself, waste energy on chewing, but Khyra alludes to, and Charlie's favorite vet reminds us that, chewed cherry pits can release cyanide. So don't be munchin' on the pits!!

Don't be chewing on those pits. Those cherries are the same color as all the other great foods.

WOWZA! Be careful with those pits! We don't like any fruits but give us a peach of cheese and we swoon. Wish some cheese would fall into our backyard...sigh.

What a great picture! Our pups each peaches that fall over our fence from a neighbor's tree...I find pits in the poops all the time...great.

Sigh.. how can something soooo yummylicios have pits that can release cynaide.. it's just not right.. we love cherries too but mom does not buy them often because they are SO expensive, esp those from the US. I can't believe you have one whole tree to yourself Charlie.. ok it's your neighbour's tree so what.. so long as the fruits fall into your yard, they are yours right? :)

Oooh....that looks yummy! Momma went to the grocery store today but no cherries came home with her ;o(
Sure looks like you enjoy them, Charlie. You're a lucky one to have a tree all to yourself!
Love and hugs,
