This warm weather is berry beautiful! Gone is the brown grass and barren trees, and in its place are green buds and bright blooms. One of my favorite pastimes when I was a kid was going strawberry picking – I’m sure I ate more than we took home! And it wasn’t just strawberries that I loved. Fresh blueberries, blackberries and raspberries were welcome guests in my cereal and ice cream bowl all season long. Berry season isn’t just for people – it’s for dogs, too. All of the sweet berries I listed above pack a healthy punch for dogs as well. Plus, they mix perfectly in my Berry Wholesome Dog Treat Recipe!
