Happy Easter ( it WAS!)

We went to Grandpaws' place for Easter Sunday. We met my Auntie and Uncie, along with Scarlet and Zoe there.

Me, Scarlet and Zoe - admiring the Easter Table Setting.

If you look close - you can see OUR doggie "easter egg cookies" mum made special for us given we cannot eat chocolate ones. They are this side of centre in little cello bags with gold ribbons. They are "chicken satay with seeds" flavour.

Mum and auntie prepared lunch - they had creamy potato bake, roast pumpkin, roast pork and gravy, duck confit with sour cherry sauce and buttered parsley carrots. It's smelled so yummers!!!

My eyes were firmly on that duck and pork!!!

After peep lunch, and our sampling, we each got a doggie "easter egg" - mum made them all pretty with stickers and stuff.

ZOE:    OOOoooooo peel the eggies auntie!!!!!!!! Quick!

So mum peeled them - one by one (far too slowly for our liking) - and we each got a whole easter egg to nom.

I woofed mine down.

Zoe Zoes was next.

And then Scarlet got hers - see how dainty she takes her pieces. Not like me - mum has to be careful she doesn't lose a finger with my technique!!

All of a sudden - uncie, mum and I went outside - and I suddenly got nervous because there was grooming equipments set up.

So I got my hairs trimmed    :-( 

Mum says I really needed it because I couldn't see through my eyebrows anymore. What would she know!!

I got to play at "half time" with my cousins to blow off some pent up "steam" from standin' on the groomin' table.

See my face not done yet - and my peeps think the "tassle" on the end of my tail is "CUTE" - I pointed to the breed grooming expectation of a mini schnauzer and there is nothing like this goin' on!! My mate Magic's mum will tell ya! It's sooo hard to get good help.

ZOE: Hurry up with your hair cut Rubie - I am waiting for sweets to be served!!! 

The peeps had their sweets (white chocolate and passionfruit mousse) served inside chocolate eggs!!! You can get the full recipe from mum's personal blog (link in my sidebar) - it will go up shortly.

Us doggies had some chicken satay egg cookies - sorry mum was too occupied doin' dishes and stuff to get the pics. Dad dad gave them to us.

When I got home - I just wanted to snooze on my couch with my new Chicken easter Stuffie. 

I just want to say - even with the hair-cut - that was a great day, and I hope your Easter was as Happy as MINE was!!!!! (minus the grooming bit of course!)

Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx ooo xxx

  21. Rubie your Easter was wonderful, you were so lucky, you got to have some of your peep's food, your very own egg and cookies (Mum would like the cookie recipe please!) Mum loved the idea of each of you getting your very own decorated egg, its such a cool idea! All I got this Easter was a walk in the sun! Sheesh! Mum, are you seeing Rubies day? Learn something from it!!! The duck and pork are just making me drool, all the food looks super dooper yummy! The table setting is so beautiful and so Eastery! Mum just loves those chocolate bunnies! You all look like you had a shnauz-tastic day! You are so very lucky Rubie! Love licks and tummy rubs with Pugalier Hugs Frank x x x x x x x x

  22. Hey Rubie! We are new to your blog. We noticed that the yellow ducky stuffie is sitting on a bunch of wooden easter eggs. Mommy calls them Pysanky in Ukrainian. We have a bunch of those wooden eggs in our house too. The ducky stuffie looked so happy on the eggs.


I do a Big Tail Wuggle when I get your comment!!!
