We were pleasantly surprised when Eivor and Pearl showed no interest in the holiday-makers’ breakfast barbecue in the dunes …

… before asking us with that familiar smile …

… to throw the ball again.

We hope the sun is shining where you are and wish you all a wonderful and very Happy Easter!

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. i’m glad your beauties ignored the breakfast smoke. I think it means that they’re happy and content and have no need to nose into questionable situations.

  2. Beautiful dogs, beautiful landscape! The snow is go, go, going in central Maine. Yay!!! Might even be able to have an Easter lunch on the patio.

      1. It might have to be on Saturday rather than Sunday, as rain is predicted for Easter. But any day on the patio is a good day. Happy Easter to you and yours!

  4. That would really be a surprise if Tippy didn’t go investigate. So glad that Pearl and Evior check with you first. They are so good. And, your description of them smiling to get you to throw their ball again makes me smile. Have a great Easter weekend.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Helen. The temperature had dropped a fair bit over Easter but we wrapped up warm and had a wonderful time. We hope you had a great time too!β˜ΊπŸ’– xxx
