I thought I would share a couple of Sams stories. Poor neglected old guy.
I gave the boys a kiwifruit. Ernie took his to bed. Sam, on the other hand, stood in the kitchen staring at his in confusion. He had no idea what he was to do with it!
He nudged it across the floor with his nose, licked it, whimpered a bit, and then began barking at it in frustration. “Mum the mouse hasn’t got a head.”
I heard Ernie coming so stood in a ballerina pose between the counter and pantry trying to protect Sam and his Kiwifruit. Dumb move.
“ Hurry up Sam. Eat it.!!”
Erns tried getting through my legs. “Leave it Ernie. Leave it”.
“Sam eat it. Eat it.!! Eat the thing”
Ernie started whimpering. “ Mum I’ll eat it. Mum can I have it.” He tried pushing me and Sam kept nudging and licking the Kiwifruit. The Kiwifruit rolled to my feet. Erns was now panicking. Let me have it Mum. I’ll eat it.
“ Leave it Ernie. Eat it Sam.” I was starting to think what the heck I am going to do now. My legs were getting sore and I was sure there would be a fight if I walked away. I tried to shift my weight a bit. Just the chance Erns was waiting for.
His paw came through my ankles and bashed the kiwifruit splitting it a little and sending it towards Sam.
Sam licked it, looked at me with a “I like this Mum mmmmm nice.” licked it again, licked his lips and picked it up. He really didn’t know how to eat it and out it popped.
Ernie was going to have it this time and lunged into the back of the legs. I lost my balance and stomped on the kiwifruit. Sam stood there with a bewildered look on his face while Erns quickly licked the bits that had shot across the floor, then tried to get his tongue under my shoe.
Sam quickly learned how to eat them and finishes his before Ernie gets to his bed.
LOL, too cute!
That is a cute story. Do they eat them fuzz and all, or do you peel them?

Give them as they are. Erns helps himself to the fruit bowl.
The fuzz is removed before we buy them because the export market don't like the fuzz. Home grown ones I rub the fuzz off. We grew up knowing them as Chinese goosberries.
I'm glad to hear that Sam has learned how to eat his Kiwi.

LOL!!! Sam, you're going to have to learn to gobble things down quick with Ernie around!!!“Mum the mouse hasn’t got a head.”
Great story, Chris!
;D I love your stories Chris. I can just picture the two of them with the Kiwi.
Nice story.. I can totally picture the whole scene!
;D ;D With most food it is the other way round. Ernie is a slow gentle eater and eats as much as he needs.Originally Posted by henrysmom
Sam inhales food and will eat until he bursts.
