I am copying a portion of a post from the www.victoriastilwell.com forum about the adventures of me and Muttley this Easter:

About noon today I got back from an Easter sunrise service at Rocks State Park, and I took Muttley with me. We were also joined by about six others from the Greater Baltimore Sierra Club (I was the leader for this outing), and when we arrived at 6:30 AM there were probably forty people greeting the new day and celebrating the true meaning of Easter in a beautiful natural setting. Muttley enjoyed meeting lots of new people. The service was followed by fellowship with coffee and donuts, then I led a small group of hardy souls on a 3 mile hike on a trail that circles around the rock formations. We worked up a fine appetite for a breakfast buffet at a nearby golf course clubhouse, while Muttley waited in the car.

Everyone enjoyed my big pup. He was very well behaved, but he still pulls on the leash, and I did not bring his anti-pull harness, so I got an intensive upper body workout along with the hike. Miraculously, my back problems did not create too much difficulty for me, and I think I was finally able to get Muttley tired out. He was snoring on the bed as I wrote this, and again now as I write.
I don't expect much response from this post, as it is about good things and success. I hope to give Muttley many more options for socializing, as well as maybe giving him (and me) more exercise as the weather gets better and (hopefully) my back improves. It was nice to post in a friendly forum where people try to help each other, give positive feedback and encouragement,
and warmly welcome newbies. Here, as HJM might say, not so much.

BTW, I haven't heard fro him since Obama was elected. Did he go into a depression? Neglect to wake up and find himself no longer on the green side of the grass? I miss that ornery git...
Also, where is Marcel? We were supposed to get pix of Moogli in his new home...

It sounds like an enjoyable day.
I went to my aunts for dinner then came home and relaxed.

That is a great way to spend any Sunday. I was glad that I could include my dog in my activities, and I think he brought some extra happiness to others, especially children. Someone at the service remarked "All Creatures Great and Small", and we were the subject of at least one photograph.

I don't know if the reference was to the film/story about a vet, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071118/
or a line in a hymn:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All Things Bright and Beautiful

The reference to a vet might have just as well been titled "Ill Creatures...", while the cast filming the movie referred to it as "All Creatures Grunt and Smell". Emotion: smile
It may have first originated in a verse from S. T. Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - "He prayeth best, who loveth best; All things great and small; For the dear God who loveth us; He made and loveth all."

Love your mutts!

I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves Emotion: smile
The weather over here wasn't so good so we didn't go anywhere special. Saturday night I went to see the Drifters (the official ones!) and they were fabulous! They played old hits and new material and I really enjoyed it.
