Hippity hoppin, Happy Easter Day!

"Here comes Peter Cottontail Hoppin' down the bunny trail Hippity hoppin', Easter's on its way

Bringin' ev'ry girl and boy Baskets full of Easter joy Things to make your Easter bright and gay..."

--- "Peter Cottontail" as sung by Gene Autry

Be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbit. But unlike Elmer Fudd, I plan on actually getting myself a wascally wabbit!

No bunnies under here.

What's that?

Oh, hi Mr. Snake with a hurt tail. I already have dibs on the bunnies, so vamoose!

Jackpot! I smell bunny!

I can't wait for my bunny snack! Hey, K, pop the hood, post-haste!


Andrea Della Robbia, The Resurrection of Christ, circa unknown (my guess is around 1517-1518)

Fabergé Workmaster Michael Perchin, Resurrection Egg, (one theory claims it is the missing surprise from the Renaissance Egg), circa 1885-1889

Fabergé Workmaster Michael Perchin, Renaissance Egg: A Fabergé Imperial Easter Egg, (one theory claims that the Resurrection Egg is the missing surprise), circa 1894

Back to me...

K couldn't pop the hood since it was not her old truck. I know bunny was hiding in the engine. Bunny: 1, Suka: 0.

What's that?

Oh, hi Mr. Raccoon. See any bunnies from up there?

I'm looking, Mr. Raccoon, but I don't smell or see anything.

Still nothing. Your left or my left?

Nope, nothing.

Ha! Very clever, Mr. Raccoon! You knew my weakness and used it to your advantage. While having me looking all over for a bunny that you claimed you could see from the tree, you slipped away and disappeared. Touché, Mr. Raccoon.

So, where are all the Easter bunnies? I think that perhaps my human, K, has gathered them up and will surprise me with a huge dog bowl of bunnies on Easter morning! *drool.... A dog can dream. And it is Easter, a time when one sees the impossible become the possible. Dead things all around us spring back to life, blossoming outward, reaching to achieve their highest potential. We, too, even at our lowest, can spring back to life and accomplish great and beautiful things. Another chance at life, to flourish! Wishing everyone a wonderful and joyful Happy Easter! I’ll just be enjoying the holiday munching on my huge dog bowl of yummy bunnies (please! please! please! paws crossed!). I'm just sayin...

Suka, if you can get here, we found a new bag of kibble in our garage and it says it has rabbit in it!!!! We haven't had any yet, but we think the Momster is saving it for Easter dinner. Hurry over.

TD would love to help that snake with his tail:)

Hey Suka my dear pal,

You make me laugh with all your adventures!! You know K will never agree to having bunny meals but then I agree with you as Easter do remind us that the impossible can become possible and in fact the ordinary can become EXTRAORDINARY ^^

Thanks for your comments as I find such comfort to know that you have been to the world of woolies too. Yay!! Mommy was about to faint upon hearing your suggestion about releasing the Picasso in me..BOL

Happy Easter and let me agree in faith with you that this Easter, let your ordinary dinner becomes an EXTRAORDINARY ONE!!

All my love to you and K :)

Love ya,
Jon Terry

Oh, Suka...we hope you get lots and lots of bunnies come Sunday.:) That baby raccoon sure was cute. And you were so very brave to get so close to Mr. Snake.

You are SO brave to go soooo close to that rattle snake. I hope it didn't get you in the face.

Schnauzer Days said...

Well it looks like you had great fun looking, even if you haven't found any Easter Bunnies yet, we think they know it's that time of year and they all go off on a big Bunny Holiday! Dex & Lou x

FiveSibesMom said...

I guess it's okay that the bunny won this time, after all, it is Easter! You got so close to that snake...brrr...you are so brave Suka. You have some very interesting critters along your walk, how fun! Have a wonderful Easter tomorrow...and may you get a bowlful of bunny...shaped dog cookies! ;-) Husky hugs x 5 coming your way!

FiveSibesMom said...

I hope you found your Easter bunny!

Nubbin wiggles,

Remington said...

I certainly hope you didn't eat the Easter Bunny....I don't think you are suppose to do that....I'm just sayin'....

Pedro said...


I think my cat-brother Tommy ate the Easter Bunny... Sorry...


bbes tribe said...

Suka, We just loved your bunny hunt. Thanks for taking us along. Mr Raccoon must have been the lookout for the bunnies to warn them to run from you. Maybe next time. Mr snake - not so good!!! Loved you post and what it said!!

There is a bunny in my yard. Come on over!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

What a beautiful post filled with expectation and promise and hope and beauty...all of the things that make this season's Celebration of Renewed Life so fantastic! We got doggie biscuits that were all-natural rabbit and blueberries. Quinn LOVES them, Puff not so much (you would think the farmgirl from KS would be the one swooning but no, it is Mr. Urban LA Surfer Dude, go figure)! We hope K feels the force of Spring gathering promise into reality...especially for her.

Peggy Frezon said...

Nice nature hike! Although I must admit I don't like snakes.

Chicco said...

Hello Suka,
Very beautiful adventure, i love reading it!
Do not worry.
You will find a lot of rabbits!
Woof, woof,


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

We are so happy that you are back visiting regularly! We hope all is well with all of the four-leggeds and K and promise a longer exchange very soon. Right now, there are still a few drivers missing but it looks quite likely that we will drive to AZ to pick up our new brother YoYoMa on Sunday. I am a little nervous about his blindness but momma says we will help him adapt and then it will be no problem at all. I sure hope so.

Full of Grace said...

EEKS, that looked like a big snake! Love that lil' coon though :) Didja get your basket of bunnies? ;) btw, tell your mom I love the pics of those beautiful eggs :)

GRAÇA said...

Come meet me .. and then resolves ... we have many mutual friends
