This doggie Easter egg hunt is a great time for both dogs and humans, and it benefits a fantastic cause too. The event is held on a generous volunteer's big, beautiful property in Potomac, MD. The property has an enormous yard with a tall, secure fence, and the dogs are allowed to run around off leash in the yard while the people mill around, eat yummy donated refreshments, and enjoy watching the dogs' antics. The actual hunt for Easter eggs (filled with dog treats) takes place at the beginning of the event, in a park across the street, and of course the dogs are leashed for that. The cost of admission (only $10 per dog), as well as the money from any additional purchases like raffle tickets or professional photos with the Easter bunny, all goes to Lucky Dog.

This was our second year attending this event, and it was just as wonderful, if not better, than the first. We hope it will continue to be an annual tradition!
And in case it wasn't clear from the previous photos how much Lily enjoyed herself, I give you a series of photos I am affectionately calling "doggie ecstasy":
