Happy Easter!!

It's 9:30 here and we are just wrapping up our holiday with giving the fur children their Easter goodies.  It has been a busy day for the humans - hosting a brunch.  The puppies had fun playing with their cousin, Emma was quite participatory in the doggie shenanigans as well.  Winston spent some time napping in his room and then got to go out front and root for 30 minutes or so - he needed a breather from indoors to go potty and get some fresh air.  Once all our guests and visiting pups had gone he spent the evening in the back yard.  The little critters spent their day having the run of the outside play space as the weather was lovely here.

For Easter goodies our little gang got the following:

Winston -  peanut butter "cookie"dog treat, stuffed Peeps toy and lots of fresh fruit and veges from our brunch prep work as we were cooking.

Puppies and Emma - peanut butter "cookie", Peeps dog toy and each of them got a spikey dog ball - as I type this Tango is racing through the house carrying around the tube that the dog toys came in - he thinks the package is more fun than the toy.

Kitties and Ferrets - Treats and new treat dispenser - that seemed to be the big hit.  It's like a weeble wobble with a hole in the side - filled with kitty treats - as they knock it over some of the goodness spills out.  It also has holes out the top that you can put these rope treats - they look a bit like orange licorice - and the kitty or ferret can drag the toy to make the treats fall out.  Didn't take Theo long to figure out that those ropes were treats....  They also got a grocery bag full of small toys - mice and other cat toys.  Ferrets love toys they can hoard.  I have also found that they love grocery bags,  I poke holes - three - across the bottom of the bag so there is no chance they can get tangled up in there and have issues getting air.  They love to take things out of bags.
