Marshfield dog hunts for Easter eggs

MARSHFIELD (WAOW) - A Marshfield couple has a unique Easter egg hunt every year.

Instead of children looking for eggs in the yard, their dog does the hunting.

Their golden retriever named Lambeau has been doing this for years.

The couple says they fill plastic eggs with dog treats. Lambeau finds the eggs with his nose and gently brings them back without opening them.

"It makes Easter fun for us because we don't have kids so the only time we do it with him is Easter time," said Minyon Page, the dog's owner.

The couple says they haven't tried the trick using real eggs. For now they're sticking with the plastic eggs.
