Easter Davey

On Easter morning Dave (my dog), never an early riser, surprised me by whining and jumping around my bed at the crack of dawn. I was spending the weekend in our holiday home in Cornwall. After working long hours and travelling across the country for what seemed like days, I had no plans for the weekend, other than binge sleeping or napping or snoozing — all with equal enthusiasm!

Soon I saw the cause of her excitement as a Dave-sized Easter bunny materialised by my side.

Image

Not being very susceptible to my attempts at reasoning, Dave was convinced that the Bunny is meant for her: I argued that chocolate could be deadly for dogs but it seemed she preferred to leave this world with a bang — by munching on a chocolate rabbit as big as herself.

Image

It was way too early for me to turn into a responsible figure of authority but I had to separate Dave and the Bunny by putting them into different rooms.

Sulking Dave.

Image

My Easter tulips.

I needed to make it up to Dave so I dressed her in a warm hoodie and took her for a walk down to Carbis Bay. The weather was quite nippy but after spending weeks in the concrete-and-glass jungle of London, this view provided most nurturing relief.

Image

If there is one thing this dog has learnt in nearly 9 years of her life, it is how to pose for photos.

Image

And twirl.

Image

As usual, we got carried away with our photoshoot and failed to notice how tides creeped up…

Image

knocked us off our feet and got us very wet.

Image

To minimise Dave’s discomfort, her hoodie was removed.

One naked Dave.

Image

It was decided to head to a local pub where we could dry by the fire and have a traditional roast lunch.

Image

Suede boots and big waves are never the smartest combination.

Image

Despite embracing my recently-acquired Britishness in every possible way, I am yet to learn how ‘to down a pint in a pub’ — or to have a sip of beer, for starters. I toyed with an idea of having some cider…

Image

but settled for some lemonade instead.

Image

Enough lunch to feed an army!

Image

Well-fed and happy.

Image

After a few hours of eating, reading, and chatting, it was time to leave Dave at home and see what the locale offers in terms of entertainment.

Image

The Croods! A great family slapstick full of giggles and heart-warming moments.

Image

It was late when we returned home but as ever, Dave was waiting by the window anxiously.

Image

Tell me how you spent your Easter, I’d love to read your stories.
