Winter (Jail) Break

After the polar vortex, this morning’s fifteen degrees never felt so warm!

Eko sent Santa a clear message that unless he took his weather back to the North Pole he was in for some trouble

I threw on Eko’s coat and boots and we set off to stretch his legs.  I planned for a couple quick stops to give Eko a chance to warm up.

At the ATM, Eko made sure no one was trying to peek at my pin number

And he patiently waited while I picked up a prescription on our way home

As I’ve said before, when Eko runs on leash with me it is the equivalent of attaching a cinder block to a Ferrari.  So before heading in we stopped at the park so Eko could really let loose.

This week has felt like prison for Eko.  I took off his boots and Eko took one deep breath…

Then went absolutely wild!

Nothing makes Eko happier than a good romp, and this one was certainly overdue.

  1. Happy for you all that you finally got out of the deep freeze enough to get out and about. No denying that sweet Eko loves his romps. Those ears fly and so does he…love the pictures especially the last one. Hugs and nose kisses

  2. Gosh, it looks so cold out there! Whee are glad you got to have a romp Eko. Whee had a romp in our hallway because it’s still to cold for us little piggies to play outside.
