Happy Easter from Lola 🐾

Lola’s hopping down the bunny trail to wish you Happy Easter!

She says she’s happy to pose for photos if there are treats involved!🐾

I had to laugh as I was taking these photos. . .

For such a happy little dog, she takes posing for photos very seriously . . .

She’s so focused on her next treat, she’s not even aware she’s wearing bunny ears. 🐇 This is her “treats-are-serious-business” expression. . .it’s the same with or without bunny ears :)

She’s had some separation anxiety since we lost Gracie. She loves to ride in the car with me if I’m running errands and walking around Lowe’s. . .(if only HomeGoods would allow dogs on a leash. ;) I found a doggie daycare nearby so she can play with other dogs if I have an appointment and am going to be gone for more than a couple of hours.

She had to have a temperament test and be evaluated to see how well she “plays with others” 🐾 🐾 on her first visit and I got her “report card”. . .

Apparently doggie daycare is serious business too. ;)

Posing for treats is oh so exhausting. . .

And so is a day spent at doggie daycare. . .

Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter. Tell Lola thanks for posing for those pictures. It sounds like you have found some outlets for her to keep busy and not miss her companion. It seems like you got her just in time.

    Happy Easter! Love your little Lola! I take my ten pound poodle into Homegood’s in Savannah all the time. She rides in the cart like a champ. I researched their corporate website and it clearly says it’s a dog friendly store. Maybe try her in the cart. TJ Max and Marshall’s are dog friendly too. World Market is the only big box store that I’ve found to not be.

    • April 21, 2019 at 6:04 pm

      I’ll have to check that out Ann! Savannah is one our favorite places to visit…except in the summer. 😀 Thank you, Happy Easter! 🐾🐇

    Sweeeet Baby Girl ! That FACE! Too cute. Love her serious expression, haha. It seems very odd to not have Gracie posing with her as she was such a dolly too. Miss her. Lola’s report card is precious. I would doggie sit her in a New York Minute if I lived close by. Thank you for sharing her new Easter look, wish I could hug her. Please do for me. Happy Easter ! 🐾🐣🐇🐑

    Happy Easter Lola and to you too Mary! Lola is so adorable and she just makes you smile. Love the bunny ears! 🐇 I’ve seen small pups in purses @ our HomeGoods but Lola would probably enjoy doggy daycare more as she could be more active & social. I must admit all us pet people had to pet the little one in the purse though! Hopefully when the time is right Lola will get a companion. Happy Easter! Clara ✝️💖🐩🐾

    • April 21, 2019 at 10:59 am

      Thank you Clara! I’ve seen those adorable little pups in handbags with their moms at HG and TJMaxx. Lola would need a stroller 😀 Happy Easter ✝️🐇🐾

    A very Happy Easter to you, Mary! Lola is so adorable in those ears!!

    I’m not getting your post notifications via email for some reason. I didn’t even know you had lost Gracie, and I want to send my condolences. She will be missed.

    If you can, would you mind checking out why I’m not receiving posts? I thought re-subscribing might resolve the issue, but I just get a pop up that I am already subscribed. I really miss your beautiful posts! Thanks, and have a wonderful Easter.

    • April 21, 2019 at 6:25 pm

      Hi Marie, Thank you for your condolences on Gracie. If it says you’re already subscribed, the post notifications must be landing on your spam folder. I’m guessing you won’t get this reply either. I’ll look into it when I’m back at my computer and drop you an email. 🐇🐾

    Happy Easter, Mary and Lola! I had to giggle at Lola’s report card. We took Sadie for a day at Doggie Day Care for a trial day. Her report was all positive though it stated she was a wall flower during free play time. She prefered to sit with the care givers rather than play with the group. They said she also wanted to be carried when moving through the halls. Ha! I took that to be the positive way of saying she put the brakes on and didn’t want to move. She is definitely a homebody! Lola is adorable, and I know she fills your heart with joy. I’m happy you added Lola to your family. I know the hurt of loss is still painful. Sending you hugs from Texas.

    Happy Easter, Mary! Thank you for all the great tablescapes–and personal posts, like this one–that you share with us throughout the year. FYI: Our Home Goods here in Central Florida allows dogs if they are in a shopping cart, being held by their owners, or in one of those “doggy strollers.” Maybe you should ask if you can bring Lola with you one of those ways. I love her new “big girl” cut, by the way.

  54. April 22, 2019 at 1:16 am

    Happy Easter Lola! You are incredibly sweet and soooo cute with those bunny ears!

  55. April 22, 2019 at 9:33 am

    oh goodness, Lola is simply the cutest thing ever! I have been so worried about her missing Gracie, the doggie day care sounds like such a fun outing for her. She is really getting modeling down pat, so adorable Mary! I hope you had a glorious Easter surrounded by all your beautiful blooms!

    Mary, Lola is so very cute! And what a good girl! What is her size now? She appears to be quite good-sized for less than a year old.
    Sami is 18 this month. Please send her greetings to Lola.
    Thank you for all your beautiful work!

  57. April 22, 2019 at 10:32 am

    Awwwwww, it’s hard when they are used to having another dog around…but the doggy daycare report card is so adorable..you may have to frame those, lol.

  58. April 23, 2019 at 8:22 am

    Hi Mary, our pup Bacio (Italian for Kisses) loves to go to daycare for the camaraderie of other pup friends. They have so many activities (very creative ones) each time he goes. Even birthday parties with all their classmates. He goes the day a week I teach all day, and it’s a great way to make sure he’s as tired as I am at the end of day! My husband loves to read his report cards each week!

    • April 23, 2019 at 9:32 am

    Will HomeGoods not allow her to be in the basket? I have been in there when people had dogs. I mean they have dog stuff.
