Happy Easter!

Okay, if you have been reading my blog long enough, you know I dress up the dogs on holidays. I do not go overboard with it, it's mostly just for a photo op. There were a few things I had been working on for this Easter. 1) having a group shot of all 3 dogs and the bunny and 2) teaching one of the dogs to hold a basket with eggs in it.

I must say that this was all accomplished, though not necessarily as pretty as I'd like. These photos really do need more than one person, but for the most part, they didn't turn out badly. I at least got a few good pictures. These were literally the only ones where everyone was looking at the camera. I tried placing the ears back on the dogs with Clover, but all were not very cooperative at that point--maybe 5 minutes into this. LOL

Anyway, Happy Easter all! Hope everyone has a prettier day than here--rain, humidity, and clouds. This is the forecast for the next four days.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a cuter easter bunny. Have a wonderful holiday!

This is just ridiculously cute!!!! Love it and brought the smiles. (Thank you for that.)

Hopefully the meteorologists are wrong. Hope the sunshine and some clear skies come your way instead.

Be well.

Love these, especially the one with Clover as the centerpiece!

Thanks everyone! These were more difficult than I expected. I thought my neighbor would be here to help me, but she was gone. Oh well. We need to practice this stuff more in general. Just one of those socialization things. LOL

Glad to bring smiles all around. Though Tovah didn't volunteer for it, she has taken Baxter's place as the Easter bunny. Hehee.

Aw, so cute! Your dogs are lovely :) (and the rabbit of course - but I'm such a dog person!)

Tiptoe said...

Thanks Tia, Melissa, and Katie.

Katie, I'm still VERY much a dog person, but Clover has grown on me a lot. Bunnies really do have a lot of personality. I saw a clip yesterday of a bunny and a greyhound together. That bunny was so feisty, climbing all over the greyhound, and the greyhound did not think it was lunch either!

The last photo is by far the most adorable, although Clover is the most convincing Easter bunny ;) How did you get him to hold the basket in his mouth?!! So cute! Thanks for sharing!!!

Hi Sarah, teaching dogs to take things in their mouth is often an incremental process unless you have a natural retriever of sorts. I can shoot you an e-mail as to the basic steps if you want to teach Java something similar.
