White Dog and Quinn don't quite "get" the concept of Easter baskets and bonnets, chicken eggs dyed all kinds of crazy colors, or candy treats shaped like barnyard animals. They like the idea of finding hidden treats and are , of course. all in favor of any day that involves communal feasting. To White Dog and Quinn this Spring Holiday weekend represents the reawakening of earth, the celebration of its regreening, the joyous chorus of color returning to the world. They love the fresh newness of the smells (the air, the damp earth). They feel the hopefulness of baby birdies being born, tulips pushing their heads above the ground, and butterflies reappearing. They stand, faces to sun, and drink in the promise of longer warmer bluer days in which life just seems to flow like honey. They breathe deeply, filling their hearts with a moment specially set aside to share with loved ones the resurrection of innocence and joy and shameless glee; the Universe's troth that we always get another chance. White Dog and Quinn wish all of you and your loved ones that special glistening brightly colored moment that is the essence of this Spring season. Happiest of Holidays.

hey Siku Marie and Quinn,

I am so furry happy to hear that the Easter Bunny was good to you! Easter baskets are pretty, but they do take some getting used too. But, as long as the Easter basket holds yummy goodies then that is all that matters!

You pawed a lovely post! Such beautiful words to express this new Spring season!

Siku Marie, I really hope you are feeling better. I just read that you had tummy troubles the other day. I am sending you healing vibes!

Happy Easter!
