Eggs, Chicks, Bunnies and…the Easter Beagle?

This week we looked for eggs.

And we counted – and ate – at least ten chirpy chicks, along with their peanut-butter haystack nests and Jelly-Belly eggs.

We also counted bunnies – and hopped at the same.

But, at last, the big finish came – and this is really thinking out of the Easter basket – with a visit from Rosie the Easter beagle. Rosie and her friend Bo came to wish us a Happy Easter. Bo, the buck-toothed Beagle, was wearing a rabbit on his head! (Warning: don't try this at home!)

Bo is not just any beagle. It turns out that Bo is the cover dog for a new book called That Dog Won't Hunt by Valerie Blettner. Rescued by Triangle Beagle Rescue of NC from a local shelter, Bo was surrendered to the shelter by his owner, a hunter, because he wouldn't hunt. Bo's story is just one of ten heartwarming stories of dogs saved by rescue groups.

Our thanks to Jeanne Ressner from Canines for Therapy – her visit was very much appreciated!
