Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On Its Way

Stop the madness!!Here’s the first sign that the Easter Bunny is coming soon.

MORTON, Ill. (AP) – They held their Easter egg hunt a bit early in the Tazewell County town of Morton, but the participants couldn’t read the calendar, anyway. They were dogs.

Nearly 300 people brought their dogs Saturday for the Pet Pantry’s first-ever canine Easter egg hunt – an event which raised approximately $1,200 for Foster Pet Outreach.

Hey this sounds pretty cool. My canine brothers get to sharpen their hunting skills and benefit other pack members in the process. Nice.

Owners led their dogs around the park as they searched for the colorful imitation eggs.

What? Imitation eggs? I knew it was too good to be true. Everyone knows Egg Beaters just don’t smell the same as a regular, old fashioned rotting eggs. I want my donation back for it gets worse…

After the dogs and their owners were finished, they opened the eggs to reveal slips of paper listing various small prizes.

Great…slips of paper. Don’t the organizers know of the illiteracy epidemic raging within the canine community? It does make one wonder what the small prizes listed were, though? I’m thinking it included things like a tub of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, a carton of Splenda, and a rubber chicken .


Got something to say?
