Hunting for the perfect egg

Today was the Doggie Egg Hunt hosted by the Chicago Park District. I had E-Coli last year, so I wasn't able to go, so I was psyched to be going this year!
We got to the park a bit late, so most of the eggs had already been found (not to hard to hide them, when we got 8 inches of snow yesterday). I nosed around looking for the one egg that hadn't been found and eaten already.
Yoo hoo, any treats in there?
Ah hah! Victory, a hidden egg, mmm give me that dog bone! Yummy!
While searching for eggs, I also found time to make a few new friends. Check out this handsome German Shepard pup. He was up for my favorite game, bitey face!
After I managed to uncover three eggs, and Mom and Dad were pretty sure I found all that was left, we headed inside to check out the Easter bonnet parade. After the parade they announced it was time for the trick contest, but no pups would go up and do a trick. After one brave volunteer went up and was too scared to perform, Dad brought me up and we did high-five and roll over. Nothing spectacular, just my usual tricks. Sorry, we don't have any pictures or video of my tricks, as Mom was too slow with the camera. About ten or so dogs went after me, seems like we broke the ice. Then they announced that the English Terrier won the trick contest. Mom, Dad and I all looked around for the English Terrier, when the lady said the terrier in the blue bandanna. Hey wait, that's me! Outta my way people, this pup has to claim his prize!
Here's Dad and I getting our prize, a dog appropriate Easter basket!
Here I am posing with my prize. Mom and Dad were so proud, they never thought we would win in a million years, but here I am, Kirby, champion of the tricks (at the Chicago Doggie Egg Hunt at least)!
Here's a close up of my prize. I got all kinds of goodies. Treats, bones, candy for the hoomans, a ball and a gift certificate to The Barking Lot, where I take my classes and Mom gets my food, so she says she gets the gift certificate. I'm not gonna fight her on that one.
Happy Easter to every bunny!! I'm gonna go snag some of my treats now!!
'Till next time
