Include Your Dog During Easter Celebration

April 20, 2011

Easter Sunday is upon us this weekend. This often means family, friends, celebration of Spring and all that is new. It also means candy!

Went out to potty like I’ve been taught, but heck, didn’t want to hang around outside – although the sun feels good the air is just too darn cold. How do those St. Bernard’s and Husky’s do it? Yikes! I guess I could wear one of those dorky outfits mom keeps … Continue reading »
