HAPPY EASTER!!!!  I was excited this morning! I put at least two full bags of carrots out last night…mom was a little mad. When the alarm went off I couldn’t help but bounce off the bed and start spinning with excitement, damn that snooze button and the grumpy voice saying “Lay down!” All 5 of us did a quick search around the back yard before our walk, but nothing….. When Falcon, Pepper, Mom and I got back from our walk we saw a present on the front porch!


There was also a letter attached. So we let Bandit and Emily out and gathered so Pepper could read it to us.


Dear Leinie,

The squirrels informed me of your meeting and the carrot traps. Being the Easter Bunny can be dangerous work sometimes. One night a year to hide all those darn eggs and deliver all those baskets…you know Santa gets alot of credit but it isn’t like he is hiding the presents…Anyway, I appreciate the attention but I really wish you wouldn’t try to trap me. Set your sights on that Cadbury Bunny, ever since he started hanging out with the Hershey’s M&M guys it is like he joined some weird chocolate gang. Stay away from the Peeps though they can be dangerous!

I need you to pass on some information to your fellow dogs today. Tell them to stay out of the grass I put in the Easter Baskets…really it doesn’t taste good and can be pretty dangerous. I don’t want to hear about you or a bunch of your friends needing surgery because of it. Also remember that chocolate can be toxic to dogs. No chasing, catching or eating any of the baby animals that are being born this spring. (and I know about those Spectators in Ohio eating my brothers and sisters!!!!) If you find any plastic eggs when you are out at the park…I didn’t hide them for you, they are for the kids. Really, when you think of it Easter isn’t a very dog friendly holiday…..

So be good to Renée today and have fun working. Tell Renée I left her a chocolate rabbit on top of the refrigerator, out of your reach! Enjoy the sunshine and HAPPY EASTER!!!

Your’s for the day,

Easter Bunny


Not exactly what I was hoping for but that’s ok…mom just informed me that Easter isn’t all about the bunny anyway. That doesn’t mean I won’t go and try to catch him again next year though! Happy Easter everyone!

So a bunch of us got together the other day…a sort of meeting of the minds… to discuss this Easter bunny that mom has been going on about.


We came to a couple different conclusions:

  1. Pepper should never be in charge of the meetings. Those Terriers just want to take over the world, she had a whole ‘nother agenda.
  2. Emily is a schmooze and just wanted to suck up to mom and doesn’t really care about the Easter Bunny.
  3. I had the most access to the front and back yard so I was to go lay a trap for this bunny.
  4. Falcon is so tired from all the learning he was doing he just wanted a nap…but at least he’s learning some manners!
  5. Bandit makes a good look out, he was on the deck to make sure mom didn’t hear our plans.


Mom keeps eating jelly beans and the ears off chocolate rabbits and was a little discouraging when I asked her for the carrots so I could lay my trap.


Wish me happy hunting…sounds like this rabbit can be a bit elusive at times…
