Doggie Egg Hunt!



As I mentioned yesterday, I went to a Doggie Egg Hunt on Saturday! It was sponsored by my favorite place – 3 Dog Bakery! It only cost $5, and all proceeds went to a local rescue. They handed us a bag and said we could find up to 10 eggs spread around the park within these big, orange cones.

A lot of people and dogs were already there and were waiting throughout the park. Mom took me on a little walk around to calm me down and let me sniff some friendly-looking dogs.

Then, FINALLY, the whistle blew and we were off! We came upon several eggs right away. They were filled with dog treats and coupons for free baked goods at 3 Dog Bakery! Yum! I was really more interested in following the other dogs, but when Mom would point out an egg, I’d have to go check it out. Some eggs that I came across, I could smell my favorite cheese biscuits, so I’d take the egg in my mouth and break it open. But it tasted weird so I dropped it and let Mom deal with it.

Here’s all the loot I brought in! (Yes, that’s a bald spot on my side from where that little mini dachshund got me a while back. I hope the hair grows back!) All in all, it was a super fun day! When can we do that again?

After the walking around the park for a little bit more, we went and visited Mom’s friend and her new baby. And I met a really sweet, big dog named Otto. Yes, another push-over, my favorite kind of guy! Mom was shocked to see me actually giving him kisses, which she’s never seen me give another dog. Hey, Mom, that’s why they call it “Puppy Love”!

You looked really good Laney, you're so pretty. The pink bandana goes really well with the green leash.

That egg hunt looked SO COOL! Sounds like you had a great time!

Nose kisses!

Addie - Um, I'm not so good at sharing.. especially treats! And Otto spooks easily enough as it is. Mom didn't want me growling at him.

Bolo - Thanks! Don't be jealous of Otto, he's not nearly as good looking as you. BOL

The doggie egg hunt looks like it was a BLAST! That's a nice-looking haul you brought in. I hope your hair grows back soon. Stella sympathizes...she has her own patch of hair to grow back soon (almost in the same spot) after the scab falls off.

You are beautiful! I'm lovin the bandana!

Such foolishness to put yummers foodables inside of something you are not allowed to eat. Silly peoples.

You did smoochies? Have you been taking lessons from Bolo?
