Home Is Where The Park Is

Eko is a seasoned road warrior and I am lucky how patient he is with long car rides. Especially considering we were on the road for twelve hours yesterday and this was the type of stuff he had to deal with:

The pet “exercise” area was about the size of Eko’s old kennel, filled with sharp rocks and dogs aren’t allowed off leash.  Someone didn’t think this one through

Unfortunately for Eko, he slept Tuesday night, had to sleep in the car all day Wednesday and then listen to me snore all last night after I crashed into bed.  This morning we took a well earned trip to the beach for Eko to burn off all that stored up energy.

I love unclipping Eko’s leash after he hasn’t been to the park in a few days.  The way he bounds into the water always makes me smile

It was also nice to see our old friends.  I call this guy “U-Boat” because he is a German Shepard that always lays in the water like a submarine

A couple people people also thanked me for bringing back “the dog that always makes my dog sleep longer.”  I particularly like “U-Boat” lurking in the background of this photo

Happy to be home!

NJ was a blast, but it’s great to finally be back in Chicago.

    So good to stretch the legs! Wooowooooo, Ku

  2. I’m happy too, because mom distributed cookie crumbs over the keyboard as she read about the german U-boat. Eko is an entertainer – I’m sure he could be a perfect holiday rep.

  3. OMG I can’t stop laughing about “U Boat” …..even lakes have their “lurkers” BOL!

    Love that UBoat! We don’t mind riding, as long as we can stop every couple hours we are good with it. Road trips seem to wear down our mom, though.

    how can anyone in his or hers right mind say dogs don’t smile?! look at Eko in the last picture, wasn’t that a picture perfect smile or what? U-boat is a real hoot!

    Love it!! I wish we were a bit closer to Chicago so that Eko could teach Tonto how to swim properly. 😉

  7. Eve says:

    YAY for arriving at home again! Just love the comment about Eko making the other dogs sleep longer!! U-boat looks like fun also! Rest up!

  8. onebluedog says:

    Home always seems to feel good after a vacation, especially when it includes a dog beach!

  9. That happy face says it all! Yay, Eko!

  10. What a gas, I also think ‘U-boat’ is the perfect name for Eko’s friendly Shepard, HA that made me laugh.

  11. Love seeing Eko mix with others 🙂
