These Pups Have Some Spring

Break out your sunscreen and beach umbrellas, it was 55 degrees here in Chicago yesterday! As spring comes to life so too does the city and its people. The thaw noticeably improves everyone’s attitude with the promise of brighter days ahead.

Spring is not just for people though. The sun charged my solar powered pups and had them looking like a couple of springs bouncing around the beach.Montrose Dog Beach, Chicago, blog,  marking our territory, rhodesian ridgeback

Eko leaped and bounded like Superman

And Penny only occasionally touched the ground

Spring is all about new beginnings and we got to witness a wonderful one. For the very first time, my brother brought Doc (his eight year-old adopted pointer) to the beach. It was glorious.

Doc tore across the beach with the excitement of a young puppy

Doc and Penny kicked up their paws and blew their ears back

It was a beautiful whirlwind of sand and smiles

After playing with Penny, Doc learned a very important lesson – how to avoid Penny!

Step 1: Hide with Eko near a human while Penny finds a new target

Step 2: Relax and enjoy watching another pup try to keep up with Penny

You are never too old for your first day at the beach

Spring is in the air, and so are these pups. Can’t wait for more warm weather adventures with Eko, Penny and Doc.
