Fall gave summer a swift kick out the door here in Chicago, but for the past couple of days summer has snuck back for a visit. These glimpses of summer are always brief, so the city comes alive with people and pets eager for one last taste of summer fun. Eko and I joined the fray and relived some of our favorite summer activities.
For Eko and the Yellow Lab, it was love at first sniff. This doofy puppy broke up the summer love affair, but Eko will always cherish that moment
It was the first day in a long time that it was actually warm enough for Eko to want some water at the park
As usual, Eko decided to drink water in the hardest way possible
After getting riled up by a feisty little guy, Eko still had plenty of energy. I knew our time was short so we headed over to the beach for the true summer experience
Eko bounded through the sand and dove into the water, ready to chase after that duck. He was slightly disappointed that the “duck” was actually a terrier, but he was still happy to chase the little guy around the beach
And regardless of the season, Eko is always willing to steal a bone or two in order to get other dogs to chase him
Soaking up the last of the summer sun
Eventually we had to leave, but Eko did his best to take as much of the beach with us as possible
Even as I type this, storm clouds are rolling in and the temperature is dropping. I knew it couldn’t last forever, but we definitely made the most of our time. Thanks for stopping by one last time Summer, see you next year!
