Mariah Carey sure knows how to spoil a girl!
In a new photo shared on Twitter, the singer dangles a bright red strawberry out for her dog, Jill E. Beans, to chomp.
“Ok, apparently my dog likes strawberries, should I be concerned?” Carey wrote early morning Thursday.
Carey, who’s on vocal rest to prepare for an upcoming performance for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, can rest her mind at ease, too. Strawberries – and most other berries – are fine for dogs to eat.
Jill E. Beans has broken out as a favorite among Carey’s five Jack Russell terriers, which include Cha Cha, Jackie Lambchops, Squeak E. Beans and JJ. One-year-old Jill made her music video debut in a remix of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” with Justin Bieber.
