Guides Show Us How to Visit. Dogs Show Us How to Live It.

We tend to think of cities as skylines. Grand monoliths and monuments which stretch to the heavens but still conveniently fit on a postcard. Or in a selfie, as it were. We cannot possibly know an entire metropolis, so we use landmarks  to summarize  the experience. That’s why you should follow a guidebook if you want to visit a city.

But what if you want to know what it’s like to live in a city? In that case – follow a dog. Dogs are not welcome in many of the places you might visit as a tourist, but you’ll always find them at the locals’ favorite spots. 

Last week we hosted my mom and Auggie, her Old English Sheepdog, and enjoyed the beach every day with the pups.

It was Auggie and Zero’s first time meeting and they wasted no time playing catch up, but spent plenty of time playing catch-me-if-you-can.

There were no landmarks and not a slice of Chicago-style pizza in sight. But my mom and Auggie didn’t seem to mind.

We love when friends and family come to visit, but it’s always more fun when they decide to live it!
