A twist on tradition

Gilly's a little old for an Easter egg hunt. Now she prefers that her goodies are simply laid out for her on the dining room table, thereby lessening time spent seeking and maximizing time spent eating.

Armed with a bowlful of liver treats, she set up an Easter non-egg hunt for Jetty in the back garden. Imagine his delight as he raced around discovering all of the hidden dog cookies. He may never come inside again.

Ivory was a wonderful girl who packed a lot of living and loving into her two short years, including becoming mother to The Fabulous Four. She'll be sorely missed by her families - both human and canine. Cheryl's advice is good - forgive the chewing, smile at the naughtiness, and hug your puppies right now, because you just never know...
