In Like A Lion

Chicago certainly had a gray winter, but aside from that it didn’t have much bite to it.  Winter here was so mild that Eko and I had to go on a road trip to Minnesota to find a snowy adventure.

At the beach, the snow was receding and the ice on the lake thinning.  It looked like spring was well on its way

As it turns out, the snow must have followed us back from Minnesota because Chicago is got hit with some pretty heavy snow yesterday.

At first Eko and I weren’t thrilled with March coming in like a lion

Then we realized that Eko is a lion hunter so we should seize the day!

At the dog park we found a few other brave pups romping in the snow

And the strangest thing happened on the way home.  As we were cutting through the park a kangaroo jumped right in front of me while Eko was taking a photo!

Wrong continent, buddy!

Spring might not have sprung, but Eko sure did! I’m looking forward to hanging up my winter jacket for the season, but until then we could do a lot worse that a few extra romps in the snow.

  1. wow, who’s of thunk a kangaroo in winter! And you got a shot of it….he does look a bit like Eko though….weird! So cool to have dogs in the dog park even in the snow, not so much luck here. And your a lion dog, wow talk about being the ultimate protector!

  2. This winter in Chicago is the definition of “in like a lion” — let’s hope it goes out like a lamb? That ‘roo must be tired. Australia is a long ways off.
