Friend Season is in Full Bloom

Winter is a tough time for a pup to make friends in Chicago. The brutal cold cut short many a trip to the park, and Eko often went long stretches without seeing another dog. But with spring stretching into shape, the world has called for all cooped-up dogs to come
Winter is a tough time for a pup to make friends in Chicago. The brutal cold cut short many a trip to the park, and Eko often went long stretches without seeing another dog. But with spring stretching into shape, the world has called for all cooped-up dogs to come out and play.

While Eko got his first taste of spring, a group of dogs came bounding down the beach ramp

Eko turned around to discover the diminutive pups in a massive romp

Eko went to introduce himself, but these fearsome hounds weren’t slowing down for anyone. That suited Eko just fine 

Big or small, spring for all!

One of my favorite things Eko does when running with smaller dogs is that he converts forward momentum into upward momentum so he won’t run too far ahead. The result is big, bounding bounces that crack me up

Eko was so excited to run with new friends that he took off in full zoom-mode and galloped all over the beach.

Happy.

When he’s most excited, Eko actually starts playing fetch with himself, throwing and catching sticks while tearing across the sand

We still have some time before the flowers show up this spring, but I am happy to report Friend Season is in full bloom.

  1. Aww, Eko looks like he’s very happy to be back on the beach with some friends. It’s really starting to feel like Spring!

  2. Eko is obviously one happy guy……looks like those new friends were loving their run by the water too. Eko’s good with the little guys!

    This is the time of year where every dog comes out from under the rug…we prefer it in about a month when only the usual dogs are out. Right now those people that never walk their dogs except for the first week or two of spring so it is really crowded out. We aren’t much for crowds.

  7. I’d like to have Eko’s kind of life. 🙂

  8. the BEST post celebrating the REAL arrival of Spring, ever! Hoping to get out to the park with Dakota tomorrow!! Enjoy!

  9. Happy Friend Season! What a fun day at the beach!

    Love and licks,
