Koobie's Easter Bonnet Contest

We read about Koobie's Easter bonnet contest she's having to welcome spring and we couldn't wait to put our thinking caps on and see what we could come up with!

This morning mom grabbed the hat that she wears to the beach when we go to Nantucket and she grabbed some silk flowers and started to "create". This is my Easter bonnet to welcome spring! Do you think you could have fit a few more flowers on there, mom?! It looks like the entire garden is on my head!

Mitch saw my hat and he wanted to get in on the action too! Mom and I both thought that he should be wearing a baseball cap and seeing as spring is all about flowers, this is what we came up with! He thinks he looks too girly!

Mitch wanted to see his hat on my head so I was only too happy to please him!

Mom was at Michael's craft store a couple of days ago and she saw these really nifty bunny ears and she just couldn't resist so here we are modeling bunny ears too!


Mom only bought one pair of ears so we have to take turns! Maybe we can both have a pair for next year mom??!!

Only one more week till the Easter bunny comes and just a few more days till the official start of spring!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Me loves your bonnet Maggie. You gots more flowers on your hat than we gots in our whole yard. Be careful the bees don't think they are and sting ya.

Hopefully the Mommy finishes my bonnet after chucrch--me hope--but she remembered last night that they gonna be having a Saint Patrick's day lunch tomorrow at work and she gots to make a couple dozen deviled eggs & since we got no eggs me guess her gonna have to go to the store...There goes my Easter bonnet...but me could get
lucky and her drop one of the eggs!!

Nanny told me you guys are candies, I don't believes here you look like handsome and pretty pups to me.
I am so happy I adopted Nanny and her family, I have cousins, aunties and a new BFF Sophia, I just hpe Ruby does not get jellyfish, but she lives sooo far away so she is going to be my longest distance BFF.

Miss Maggie: I think you look smashing in your bonnet. I agree that Mitch needs to stick to the bunny ears. And by the way, your beard is looking lovely!

We LOVE your Easter Bandanas and bunny ears! Our mom almost bought us some bunny ears, but she didn't think we would keep them on. She did make us some St. Patrick's Day bandanas though!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Maggie and Mitch! You guys make those flowers look so pretty! The world would be such a dull looking place without us Airedales around! It's so nice to have met you two! Hope you have a good walk today! Watch out for those dead leaves!

Wet Nose,

Hi Maggie and Mitch!

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog!

We go to the dog park almost everyday and there are two Airdales that are "regulars" there as well. My dog mum and dog dad always tell their humans that they love Airdales and that if they didn't have us beagles they would have Airdales!

Wags and sniffs,

I love all of your hats but my favorite is the bunny ears!

Mojo said...

Lovely Easter bonnets... but the bunny ears get my vote. Especially with the looks on your faces.
Mitch says "Omydog, Omydog, this is not happening, it's a dream, I'm a big imposing butch boy". Maggie says "You may think this is funny. But you're going to pay and pay."

I can see you winning that contest Maggie. That hat definitely says 'Easter' to me. Glad to see Mitch is getting in touch with his female side.
You both both make excellent easter bunnies too, all furry and stuff ...
