"I smell berries! I wonder if I can sneak a few?"
" you gotta know just how to pick the ripe ones. Sometimes you have to stretch real far to get the good ones."
" Oh, boy, more here. Num, num, num. I could eat these all day."
"Uh, oh - I think I've been spotted."
"I'll just look indifferent. Yeah, that's what I'll do. Maybe then she'll look away and I can eat more berries."
" I don't think it worked. Drats... Mom says to leave some berries for the humans, but, I can help sniff out all the ripe ones for her to pick."
"Oh, boy! I know this means I'll get more berries!
Did I mention that I love berries? Did I mention that it's the weekend and a long one, too? Go pick some berries with your human. It will be scrumptious and fun!"
Have a peaceful weekend, y'all......
*Nuala (and Shane RIP) have always help me "pick" the berries. She and Shane were experts at picking only the ripe ones ever so gently of f the vines. I love the fact that Shane taught her how. It keeps his memory alive and going strong with every berry she eats.*
