Who's the REAL Easter Bunny

Hi everybody! It's me - Mitchy boy!

Maggie and I met the Easter bunny today only.................. I thought I was the Easter bunny? Mom keeps telling me that I am!

What do you think, Maggie? Who is the real Easter bunny - her or me?

Maggie said that to be honest with you, Mitch, you're much cuter than her and you smell more like a real bunny too!
Thank you, Maggie! I knew it all along! She is the imposter! I am the real Easter bunny here!

Now I can rest easy!

I have news to share. Yesterday for my Gotcha day dad took us all to Rhode Island! We visited with friends who have 2 horses and one of them came over to say hi to us! His name is Jigger and he's an American Quarter horse.

I got to go right up to his face and say hi rather loudly and rudely! Good thing he was friendly or I think I might have been in trouble because he is a rather big boy!
We also got to explore the grounds and Maggie and I found a pile of horse poo and the yummiest looking cabbage and lettuce and grapefruits and oranges only the evil mom wouldn't let us sample it! She said that this was the compost pile and it was off limits to us!
Dad also took us all out for lunch and I got to have Rhode Island clam cakes for the very first time in my life! OMG, are these things ever yummy!

I'd say I had a pretty darn good special day yesterday! I'm sure one lucky boy! I wish every day could be my gotcha day!

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

Yer friend,

Hi Mitch & Maggie

You are so much cuter than that other easter bunny, Mitch and you can bark and play with Maggie. Where did you get the egg with the little doggie on it?? I love it.

You & Maggie always make my Mommy laugh at lot and cry sometimes too. The crying part is ok because on this post you remineded The Mommy of her Samantha when you was kissing that horsie...Samantha loved horsies & always went straight to the pasture whenever they went the country..the Mommy never lets me loose by myself but she let Samanta stay outside with the horsie all the time...Does that seem fair?

Love ya lots & lots...Mona

Sounds like a pretty good day! Mitch makes a great easter bunny. You really do seem comfortable in those ears!

Sounds like you had a great time - if only you could have rolled around in the compost pile, the day would have been perfect.
We can tell you know you're one lucky pup to have such great people.

Happy Gotcha Day Mitch! Between the bunnies and the horses, I've been missing lots of action over here.


Hammer said...

Hi Mitch
I'm real sorry I'm late wishing you a HAPPY GOTCHA DAY !! Mum is behind with my blogging again. I'm pleased you and Maggie and your pawrents had such a great time. The clam cakes sound and look yummie.
You were very brave to speak loudly to the horse coz he could've bitten you on the nose. I'm lucky coz Khomet is good with me too.
I think you look like the real Easter bunny and you look very cute too. I hope you and Maggie and your family have a safe and happy time over Easter. We will be thinking of you.
Love from Hammer

Mack said...

Sounds like you had a super fun Gotcha day!!

I'm glad that big old horse was friendly!

The Army of Four said...

I don't know what looks better - the compost pile or the clam bake thingies! Hee hee hee!
You are an ADORABLE Easter bunny, Mitch! Listen to Maggie - she knows!

The Zoo Crew said...

glad you had a special day!! we celebrate gotcha days at my house for our 2-legged little sisters who were both adopted from across the big pond ;)

peace + paws,

Gus said... have my vote for Easter Bunny as long as you share the yummy clam cakes!


Lady Kaos said...

Wow! What a great day!! My Aunt Gillian has a horse but he spooks really easy so I can't be too close to him. He's been known to kick chickens across the yard.

Neko said...

Your ears are so cute, I would like some of those clam cakes in my easter basket please easter bunny. Love,Neko

Faya said...

Mitch ! I cannot resist....OMG you are so cute .... Véronique says she loves you !
Kisses, Faya

Koobuss said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Mitch, buddy!!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time, except for when your mom would not yet you and Maggie roll in the compost pile. What a spoil sport!! Moms just don't know how to have fun. At least you go to sample the Rhode Island clam cakes. They sure do look yummy.

You were pretty brave around that horse, Mitch. He probably thought that you were being silly and took compassion on you.

I also agree with Maggie. You are a lot cuter than the Easter Bunny. And, I'm glad that you agree with me about hiding your stuff from the Easter Bunny. They keep telling me that the Easter Bunny hides your stuff from you, but I don't believe them. That sounds kind of dumb, don't you think?

Have a great Easter!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Thank You for visiting my blog so often and for your comments. I always look forward to hearing from you.

Stanley said...


You, by far, are the coolest and cutest Easter Bunny! I had NO IDEA that you had this secret life and identity. It's almost like you're a spy or something.

In case you're wondering, Stella & I will take some of that horse poo and any other types of poo you can find for our MAIN Easter basket prezzie. Feel free to throw in any dead animals you find and anything else that smells tasty.

Thanks, man. Looking forward to your visit this weekend!

Loved your gotcha day fun! I've never met a horse up close & personal. You seemed as brave as he was!

Goober love & smooches,

Moco said...

ROAD TRIP! That looks like a special place. That is one big animal you are being rude at.

Grammie loves clams and Pappy loves to dig them. He never takes me with him though.

You are a better Easter bunny than the original.

Amber-Mae said...

Awww, just look at you Mitch! Sooo cute with those bunny ears...Oh wow, you got to meet a real horsie? Sooo kewl! I met one before & it was quite terrified of us.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Jessie, Jake and Lola said...

Wow what a great day! Those fish things look sooo good - our mama is salivating all over the keyboard.

Wow that horse looked real scared of you!

We also think Mitch looks more like the Easter Bunny - sorry

Snowball said...

Mitch, are you giving the horse a kiss? You are so BRAVE! I would have barked at him. hee...

The clam cakes looks delicious.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We're sure those crab cakes were much better than the compose pile although dogs seem to like their food smelly..

Putter said...

Putter ...:)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mitch!
Yes, your sure looks soooo cute with those bunny ears! Get rid of that impostor!
Glad you had a great day celebrating you special day. Sure that horsie is big!
Kisses and hugs

i said...

You make a much cuter Easter bunny than the Easter bunny :-)

Ooh the clam cakes looked real yummy. You are one lucky boy, Mitch!

Be careful about the horsie now. I got snorted by one before when I tried to be funny with it.

Have a Happy Easter weekend!

Kirby said...

Hi Mitch,

Happy belated Gotcha Day! I'm so happy that you ended up with such a wonderful family!! I don't think you could have had a better Gotcha Day celebration. First, you are the real Easter Bunny. You're also real cute! Second, how cool was it to see the horses? I just love them, and I see you feel the same way. Oh, those Rhode Island clam cakes sure look yummy. I'm soooo hungry now. Congratulations on one year of 'captivity' and may you have many, many more.

Your pal,

Lizzy said...

Happy Gotcha Day, Mitch! You really did get close to that horse!

Hope you all have a very happy Easter, too. I think you definitely make the best Easter bunny. ;)


Puggle Preston said... are the cutest bunny, Mitch! You are really fearless. That horse is HUGE!
Those clam cakes look so yummy. My mommy said we might be moving to Boston later this year, I will have to remind mommy to get me some of those from Rhode Island.

Joe Stains said...

omdog Mitch, if you are the real easter bunny please hide 15 dozen eggs in my fridge becuase I LOVE EGGS. Also, those marshmallow peeps are sort of creepy, I don't want any of those. THANK YOU EASTER BUNNY!

Bella said...

Happy Gottcha Day Mitch !!!
You sure a a cute Easter Bunny - just look at you resting & looking so handsome

BrandytheGreat said...

Yep, youre the one and only Easter Bunny, Mitch.

the many Bs said...

hi M&M, we're glad you got to properly celebrate your Gotcha Day, Mitch! that sounded like fun. we don't like horses much. Bailey likes to bark at them, but he's really full of bluff and he's kind of afraid. they're really big and mean looking.

you sure are the most handsome easter bunny that we've ever seen.


Amber said...

What a great time you had to celebrate your gotcha day! Happy easter to you and your family! That's one cute looking egg!

have a nice weekend!

Hi Mitch, we're really glad you and Maggie got to have a great adventure on your Gotcha Day! Clam cakes and horsies in the same day! What more could a doggie ask for?

Petra said...

Hey Easter Bunny, are you going to be hopping over to my house this weekend?!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


I never knew the Easter Bunny was so cute, and quite so black and tan. This is good, because I was worried about having to meet him! But thank all fluffy toys that he is one of us! I knew eventually everyone would start turning over to our side.

Personally, I think every day is a gotcha day, Mitch! Just remind your human's of that (they have a hard time with saying "no", especially when you point your nose to the ground and look up at them!

Woohoo for converting the Easter Bunny!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley
Oh, by the way-congrats on getting those tape-worms taken care of...those wormy things are evil invaders!

Patience-please said...

Clam cakes AND salad bar (Horse poo) in one day!!!
Wow. Just freakin' WOW!!!

Southbaygirl said...
