GQ Magazine, Did We Miss Your Call?

It may be tough to believe, but occasionally I go out and do things without Eko. Gasp! You can only ask one dog to put up with so much, so I try to give Eko a break every once in a while.  Normally my excursions are pretty boring and consist of things like me standing in the grocery store for ten minutes trying to figure out the difference between onions and shallots.  However, on today’s solo adventure I learned a few very interesting things…

First, I learned that my bank has mini golf.  I will now be stopping by much more frequently.  As you can see, I need the practice.

After the bank, I hit the barbershop.  As I was flipping through a magazine, I heard a familiar rustle from underneath what I thought was a coffee table.  And that’s when this guy poked his head out.

Something tells me that he didn’t graduate barber school

Of all the barbershops in all of Chicago, I accidentally stumbled into one that’s pet friendly!  What are the odds? Finding a good barber is one of the most important parts of settling down in a new city, and I think I’ve found my spot.  Luckily for me, they also give great haircuts.  Next time I’ll have to see if Eko can come along.

While the pup kept me company, I flipped through GQ magazine and waited for a chair to open up.  I was about to put the magazine down when a particular page caught my eye.

Debonair, dark haired man and an adventurous looking Ridgeback?  Now where have I seen that combination before…

GQ, what happened??  How did we not get the call for that photo shoot??  I clean up nice!

If he wasn’t also my dog, I would most definitely fire my agent right now.


OMG…I laughed so hard I dropped my phone! Both you and Eko make our day! Thank you so much….in our hearts you are the GQ man!

Dana, while we may have been denied our GQ shoot this time around, we still have the best readers! Glad you got a laugh, hope your phone is ok!

will, have you considered to be a columnist? of course, eko will have to be the editor. your ‘stories’ are most enjoable.

I am so happy that you followed me and that I clicked to see your blog! What a find! Love your humor…love Eko…and the Boxer in the photo made me smile. We had one when I was a little girl.
Thank you for following Dakota’s blog!
If you hadn’t we might not have found you!

Caren, the Dakota blog was definitely the find of the day, can’t wait to follow along. Thanks for checking in.

OMG, How do you come up with these Post!!!! You need to meet-up with my Son and Nephew and bring the dog. You guys could eat BBQ, drink sweet tea, and talk about Marking New Territory… 🙂 I just love your Blog man!!! Take Care and God Bless, Kenny T

Sometimes, life just hands you things! I couldn’t believe that the barbershop had a dog AND that the magazine I picked up happened to have that photo. The post just fell into my lap. Thanks for checking in, that BBQ sounds like a great time, we’re always looking to meet new people and swap stories.
