Getting ready for Easter

My followers will remember that we proved that Santa uses Reindogs to pull his sleigh on Christmas Eve, while reindeer get all the credit.   After all, we are there to help, we just want to serve, let the reindeer get the credit, dogs are really man's best friend.  Now it is time to dispel another myth.

As you can plainly see, the Easter Bunny is really a Golden Retriever.   In fact, the Easter Bunny is multiple Golden Retrievers, all over the world.  Our friends, Hamish & Rescue Sophie have sent us photos as they try on their costumes and get ready to "fetch" eggs and treats to good little boys and girls all over the country.   Below, Hamish gets fitted for his costume.  
If you will just think about it a little, you will understand how you have been duped all these years.    Doesn't it make sense that if you want something "fetched" you would not call your local bunny rabbit?   Come on, what are you thinking?  Try throwing an egg (or tennis ball) in your back yard and see who brings it back?   Your Golden Retriever or your bunny rabbit?   Below, Sophie poses for a "pre-delivery" photo.
You know that bunny rabbits don't carry baskets around, they don't deliver anything.  If you have a basket of green grass, a rabbit is more likely to eat the grass than share it with little boys and girls.   That is where the Golden Retrievers prove once again how unselfish they are.    They allow the rabbits to get all the credit.   They allow the rabbits to pose for all the publicity shots.    They allow the rabbits to get all the good advertising endorsements.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Golden Retrievers go about the business of delivering and "fetching" gifts to good little boys and girls.   Unselfish devotion to the cause of helping bring joy, it's what we do as dogs.  It's how we bring joy into so many lives.    Luckily, there is a Golden Retriever nearby, no matter where you live.   There is a Golden Retriever nearby to sneak out and make their rounds, hiding eggs and toys in time for the morning egg hunt.    Remember kids, there is a reason everyone knows that dogs are your best friends.

So now that you know the real story, I hope you will continue to pretend that the rabbit is the star of Easter, they have this ego problem, so they need the recognition.  We all know that the real hero's are the Golden Retrievers that will deliver the treats and the decorated eggs all over the country.    So give your Golden Retriever an extra treat or two, they deserve it for their devotion to helping without worrying about who gets the credit.    And special thanks to our friends Hamish & Sophie for sending us photos as we suit up for the special day, and thanks to them for giving us permission to use their photos in this issue of our expose!

And don't forget the real story of Easter.  We hope you all have a very Blessed Easter.

  2. If that doesn't beat it all. Yes, we've been duped, how could we have ever guessed the truth. And all that trara because the bunnies have an ego problem. If that doesn't beat it all.

    Sophie and Hamish, you both are just beautiful.

    Happy Easter.

  3. My golden Neeli is thrilled to hear the truth come out! She too thought it was rabbits - until she started chasing them in the yard. Thank you Mogley for the clarification!

    Compliments to Sophie & Hamish too.

  5. Hmmm, this makes me wonder about the hen that laid the golden egg....
    I hope Golden Bunnies come visit us for Easter!
    Hugs and belly rubs to all,

  6. I KNEW there wasn't an Easter Bunny - it HAD to be an Easter Golden!!

  7. Hamish and Sophie,

    You guys rock as Easter Goldens!!!

  8. I didn't Know this, but I certainly Felt it! Our neighborhood has lots of bunnies but all they are interested in is what they can find to eat for themselves and have no interest in sharing anything with anybody else.

    Good for you for breaking the news!

    Kisses and Happy Easter,


  9. Mogley, thank you for sharing this important information and for posting pictures of a couple of very special Golden friends who live near Chicago (Don't tell but I hear they are Cubs fans!).
