Soaking Up The Last Weeks Of Summer

Somehow, and without my notice, the calendar says that August is more than halfway over.  Labor Day is only a couple weeks away and fall weather is surely not too far behind. We love all seasons but Eko is a summer dog at heart, so I have made trips to the dog beach a priority while the weather lasts.

As you can see, Eko certainly appreciates my efforts

After a romp through the waves, Eko does his best “beached-whale” impression

And when he is not kicking up sand, there is no better place than the dog beach for Eko’s favorite non-moving activity: sunbathing!

A trip to the dog beach is guaranteed to make both humans and dogs grin from ear to ear

As an added bonus, after the beach Eko turns into a couch potato for the rest of the day

Anyone else have any summer bucket-list items they’re trying to squeeze in?

  1. There is a dog park or part of the forest preserve that Cook County has that I think Eko may enjoy regardless of seasons. http://fpdcc.com/recreation/dog-friendly-area/

    We took Cody once and he couldn’t stop with the smells and other dogs. The one time I went, it was winter and he was still hell bent, nose to the ground. Cook County wants some money to use it. But it may help to release some cabin fever come winter.
