In Like A Lion

At the beach, the snow was receding and the ice on the lake thinning.  It looked like spring was well on its way

As it turns out, the snow must have followed us back from Minnesota because Chicago is got hit with some pretty heavy snow yesterday.

At first Eko and I weren’t thrilled with March coming in like a lion

Then we realized that Eko is a lion hunter so we should seize the day!

At the dog park we found a few other brave pups romping in the snow

And the strangest thing happened on the way home.  As we were cutting through the park a kangaroo jumped right in front of me while Eko was taking a photo!

Wrong continent, buddy!

Spring might not have sprung, but Eko sure did! I’m looking forward to hanging up my winter jacket for the season, but until then we could do a lot worse that a few extra romps in the snow.

    Looks like Eko is trimmed to fighting weight. Is his owner sporting a stylin Marking Our Territory parka?

    Great fun in the snow. We never did get any that was worth anything here this year. I guess I shouldn’t talk. Last year our big snow was in April.

    I’ll trade with ya for a week! Here in Florida we don’t ever get any snow *pouts*

  10. Looks all too familiar, but look at the fun you have. I see a cutie in the park back there too. The more the merrier. Come on Spring!

  11. That’s one fine kangaroo jump the Eko

  12. That’s a nice kangaroo… hope it can manage the snow ;o)

    This winter in Chicago is the definition of “in like a lion” — let’s hope it goes out like a lamb? That ‘roo must be tired. Australia is a long ways off.

  14. wow, who’s of thunk a kangaroo in winter! And you got a shot of it….he does look a bit like Eko though….weird! So cool to have dogs in the dog park even in the snow, not so much luck here. And your a lion dog, wow talk about being the ultimate protector!

  15. I wish I was there playing in the snow with you!
    Love the kangeroo shot!

    OMG!! It didn’t hit me until now that a member of the large breed community like Eko can gain that much velocity! He’s so multi-talented! 🙂
