Hi everyone, Sam here. Mom was resting and I thought I’d take care of today’s post when I came across this meme. I am shocked that one of my own kind just cancelled Easter.
Wait, what…does this mean my eggs are empty?
All of us at the Ranch extend our best wishes for a joyful and Happy Easter (or Passover) ‘howliday’ spent with family and friends and hope you experience peace, love, health and happiness.
Live, love, bark 🐾

We hope you had a wonderful Easter!
Sam, you look extra cute in your bandana 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
It was egg-stra special. 😁
I hope your eggs were filled full Sam.
Something even better-a fresh hoof to chew all night. Much better than an egg. 😉
Hi Monika & the Pawsome Duo,
We hope you had a Happy & Blessed Easter and the weather has warmed up a bit. It was hot here and the rain held off until tonight. I am looking forward to the cooler Autumn weather, but not too cold mind you.
We had a bit of a surprise today. Geoff found three kittens in our back shed. They look abut 2-3 weeks old and mother cat seems to be able to climb over the back fence without disturbing our dogs. So, much for three “working” dogs defending their turf. Wouldn’t have happened on Bilbo’s watch, although to be fair to the dogs, the cat can climb into the shed via the back fence and there’s a gate to keep the dogs out. So, the cat has chosen well.
Our elderly neighbours are in the business of feeding local wildlife and have fattened up young magpies, ducklings so I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re throwing the cat some morsels or at least know where she comes from. That’s tomorrow’s job.
BTW thought you woujld like this dog post I came across: https://mcguffysreader.com/2017/07/22/life-lessons-from-my-dogs-velvet/
I am deeply in the throws of the A-Z Challenge. My theme for this year is “Letters to Dead Artists”. It’s a huge undertaking but I’m loving it.
Have fun with the A-Z challenge. You’re far more disciplined than I could be doing something like that. Will check out the link, thanks for sharing.
MOL😹 Pawkisses for a Happy Hoppy Easter to all of you🐇🐰🐾😚😻
So can I try my luck at Sam’s shell game he’s running there…
I wouldn’t advice it-I think the dog cheats. 😈
The Easter Bunny would be toast if he hopped in our yard. We’d give him a chase for his eggs and candy. Have a wonderfur howliday weekend.
Ours too though my knuckleheads would probably stare first before giving chase. Happy Easter 🐰
Choppy has done a good job at canceling Easter egg hunts this year, I’m sad to report (though I suspect the bunnies are even less happy, wherever they are now, at this turn of events).
There’s something about dashing-about bunnies that sends dogs into a high prey frenzy.
Happy Easter to you too Sam, and your human 🙂
Many thanks. All best ‘howliday’ wishes to you as well.
I love all the puns. 🤓
We never like to leave a pun unshared. 😇
A happy Easter to you. Mom & Dad will be busy cooking Easter breakfast for the kids and grandkids -and then the egg hunt!
Hazel & Mabel
Sounds like rollicking great Easter fun. Enjoy!
😀 Hehe, good one! Have a great weekend!
And a happy ‘howliday’ weekend to you as well.
Sam, better paw at the right egg – we think there is a great surprise in one of them.
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
My right or yours? Elsa says I only get one shot at getting it right. 😲
Sam, those eggs might be empty, but I bet there are some special Easter treats in your near future. At least I hope so. Wishing you, Elsa, and the humans a wonderfully blessed Easter weekend.
Thank you. We wish the same for you and Tippy. 🐰
Egg-actly Sam! All the best to you and Elsa and try to lay off the peeps if you can. 🙂
Mom won’t even bring those things home to build a diorama. She says they make her turn green with all that sugar. 🤢 Wine is better in her mind.
Wishing you a very happy Easter.
Look after your mum, you two…
Happy Easter! Your look in that picture seems to be saying, “Elsa stole my eggs! It isn’t fair!”
She probably did…truth be told. Happy Easter to the whole cat clan.
It’s okay, Sam, your (and Elsa’s) eggs won’t be empty. Labs are silly sometimes. Ducky is part Lab so I can say that…she’s silly 99% of the time! But her favorite “catch” is tree rat. Thankfully she hasn’t caught one in a long time!
My stupid “Like” button is being disagreeable (again!) today so I shared on Twitter instead.
Ducky is Elsa’s hero since she despises tree rats. She came close to catching on earlier this week. I think her speed caught the squirrel and her by surprise! Happy Easter.
Labs have a great sense of humor.
They do, but to cancel Easter isn’t funny. I want my eggs!
Too cute. Nothing like a couple of pups to make one smile.
Have a fabulous day and a very happy Easter. ♥
Thank you…wishing you a very Happy Easter 🐰
Ack! Bunny! :-O
Must have been Mr. MacGregor’s dog. 🐰 Happy Easter.
Ditto to you.
Happy Easter to you! I hope the first photo is not true.
OH Sam, your face is too cute. I am sure there will be some surprise waiting for you for Easter, don’t worry about the empty eggs. 🙂 Hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!
Usually, I am the surprise. 🤣 Have a wonderful weekend and blessing-filled ‘howliday.’
I was reading an article about why dogs hate Easter (including they watch us eat those poisonous chocolates), and this seems to confirm that theory. Maybe your Mom can give you a real egg that magically appears from the fridge, Sam and Elsa?
Love and Happy Easter from the crew here in Chattanooga, too. <3
Mom’s not into eggs other than for baking but I’m hoping she’ll will make an egg-ception this weekend. 🐰
Yikes, Sam! We don’t think your eggs are empty though. There’s always another Easter Bunny waiting in the wings for when something like that happens. 🙂
Happy Easter and weekend to all of you!
Whew…I feel better now! Happy Easter to you and yours.
have a good Good Furryday… and yes it was my breed who ruined easter… but hey christmas is soon right?
Hurrah…something else to look forward to in the near future. 🐰
And to all of your lovelies as well!
Peace and good things
Right back atcha.
Oh the life those two have … and with a sense of humor. Happy Easter weekend to you!
We do live a charmed life…well unless you count the lack of snow but we’ll make do. 🐰
