It's almost time for another special-day: Easter!

I got really excited when Google said Easter is about eating bunnies and baskets full of candy... but then my human totally rained on my Easter parade. She said there'd be NO bunny eating for me because the kind of bunnies that get eaten on Easter are made of chocolate. And chocolate is really bad for dogs. It can even kill us.


I asked Google if there are any non-chocolate Easter-candy options. Turns out there's a pretty long list of things you can eat on Easter, but Jelly Beans and Peeps are the most popular.

I had no idea what a Jelly Bean or a Peep is, but figured if they're on a list of things to eat, I should eat them. My human must have felt kinda bad about putting the quash on bunny eating, because when I asked asked if we could celebrate Easter with Jelly Beans and Peeps, she actually said yes. At least to the Peeps part (apparently Jelly Beans are too much like pebbles and she doesn't want to encourage my rock addiction).

So, yesterday she brought home some Peeps. And I totally rec
ognize these sticky little chickies from last Easter! These chicks are tasty, but they definitely don't taste anything like a nugget. They're definitely more fun to chew on though. And their goo sticks to your snout for future tasting.

I still don't know exactly what a Peep is. But I do know it isn't made of chocolate and tastes pretty good. So if your people say you're not allowed to celebrate Easter because of the evil chocolate bunnies, tell them you want an Easter Peep instead!

Today my flat self heads to Arizona with our spotted friend, Miley The Destroyer. He makes lots of friends at a dog show, tries to donate blood, has a near death experience and seeks shelter in a ginormous cactus!

You're so lucky! Ever since the vet scolded our human about being tubey years & years ago she won't let have anything that's potentially fattening; including candy. She does organize a sort of Easter egg hunt for us in the backyard; she hides a bunch of new toys & treats for us to find. It's lots of fun. We hope you have a great Easter. PugSun is this weekend but it looks like there will be lots of rain. We're totally sad about that, hopefully EB PugSun will be dry. Enjoy the Peeps!
Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

Hi Puglet! I've never had Peeps! Mom doesn't let me eat anything. Maybe Josie will bring Peeps to our date tomorrow. Then again, eating Peeps in front of Josie may not be a good thing since the goo sticks to your snout.

Thank you so much for giving us the heads up about Peeps. Yesterday mom said words that were music to our ears - "you're both looking a little thin. I'm going to have to increase your food". We about died of heart attacks. We're pushing hard for Peeps, because they look SO delicious. It pays to work out, we guess.

Happy Easter!

THE PUGLET said...

Ok, honestly? I wasn't supposed to eat the peeps. My human said there were for "decoration".


What kind of fool decorates with candy when there's a pug around?!? So of course I totally ate one. Or three.

My human took this picture, looked away for a second and before she could stop me - WOMPFH! We went from a 6-pack of peeps to a pair of siamese-twins.

Hey Arnie & Gracie ~

I think I found the weight you lost. Yesterday I heard the words NO pug wants to hear: you're looking a little tubey.

I've heard the camera adds ten pounds, but I didn't think it was true! No way would I pass the 25lb test these days.

Thanks for being honest, Pug. I have two little girls here who were treating me like the "Soup Nazi" because I never give them candy.

Hey Puglet! You looks cute with your peeps! There has been sooooo much talk of peeps. Everytime Mommy heres the word "peep" she has to tell everyone what Daddy does to these poor defenseless peeps. He puts them in the microwave. Usually the yellow ducky or are they chicky ones because the base of them is flat and they stand up. Then they Puff up and then Explode. It is pretty funny. Daddy even had my Grandpaw do one. Mommy said they were being nerds. I hopes Stubby will brings some peeps tomorrow!
oh Pee-s... Izzy got in trouble by her boyfriend Bean because she was watching your u-tube video too much...HEE HEE HEE HEE...ummm...I better go.....

Thank you for this most encouraging news. I must tell momma.

THE PUGLET said...

Exploding Peeps? Heh Heh. That sounds funny.

Good luck with the egg hunt/easter date. I know my man Stubbs is superexcited about it. Hope the rain stays away!

PS> Izzy, tell your boy Bean to make a video for you so you can watch him too!!

LOLOLOL I am totally going to let my puggies have exactly one peep apiece just because of your "WOMPFH! We went from a 6-pack of peeps to a pair of siamese-twins." LOLOL Kizzy and Phoebe thank you and I do too. They thank you for the peep and I thank you for the laugh. You make my day. :-)
