Night Moves

It’s no secret Montrose Dog Beach is our favorite spot in Chicago. But at our old apartment it was a bit of an operation to get to the beach. I’d have to block out time for travel, try to avoid traffic and cross my fingers I could find parking when
It’s no secret Montrose Dog Beach is our favorite spot in Chicago. But at our old apartment it was a bit of an operation to get to the beach. I’d have to block out time for travel, try to avoid traffic and cross my fingers I could find parking when we got home.But now that we live within walking distance of the beach?Montrose dog beach, chicago, rhodesian ridgeback, marking our territory, puppy

We can hop over anytime!

Since we moved we’ve had the opportunity to visit our favorite place at a new time – sunset. It’s been fun to see the beach in a new light.

There’s a whole new crowd of pups for Penny to romp with

And a whole new crowd of people for Eko to butter-up

Sunset dips in the lake are the perfect way for my she-wolf to cool off after a hot day

And I’ve noticed Eko has an extra pep in his step with the cooler night-time temperatures

Best of all is Emily can now come to the beach with us more often

The sun sets, Eko soars and we head home

More friends, more beach time, more Emily – I think the pups and I are going to settle into this new routine just fine!

    I’m surprised that Penny hasn’t driven Emily insane yet.

    Hey guys! Congrats on the new place! Maybe it’s time for Eko and penny to get another sister! I found this site that I thought you might be interested in.http://www.rhodesianridgeback.org.za/rrif/Home.html. I was also wondering if you could give us a bit of information about Eko and penny’s blood lines? Thanks guys keep up the good work!

    Love the picture with Eko and the kid! Such great pictures all the time, in fact!

  5. Yay! No wonder you picked the new place…walking distance to the beach is awesome! Enjoy the sunset evenings and your family time all together.

  6. coastingnz says:

    That is awesome – definitely something special about twilight/sunset beach walks and Nico is the same come summer – more pep in his step on our evening walks when it is a bit cooler. Win win situation for all with Emily being able to go more often too – not just the perfect house but also the perfect location – with the perfect family 🙂

    Good thing you don’t have a fenced yard as with their jumping, it would be useless! Swimming at sunset looks like lots of fun!

  8. Wendy says:

    Dog beach photos in “the golden hour”… a photographer’s favourite time of day. The photo of Eko with the little girl is really beautiful.

  9. What a great new routine! Penny’s wild-face looks the same – day or night. Awesome.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  10. Jesse says:

    Eko can jump! Awesome shot. Looks like a great place to hang out.

  11. Nothing like a sunset romp to tire out the pups!

  12. fredrieka says:

    we love the sunset, I bet you still have lots of fun, hope you like your new place

  13. FABULOUS!!!!!!! Sunset at the beach is a wonderful way to end a day……

    Congrats on the new perfect evening time fun and BONUS: Emily can come too!! Love the new subset photos and like everyone else the one with the little girl is worthy of framing and maybe some kind of contest entry!

  15. Eko soars over that fence…I hope if you have a backyard it has an 8′ fence around it!

  16. Marcela says:

    Will, that is so cool that there is a doggie beach. I haven’t found one here in MA, but Annapolis, MD had one. Time to start searching for a beach where dogs can go to and have fun with us.

  17. Eko flies over that fence like the deer in our backyard did in my latest post! I think he just might be part deer… Love those wolf-teeth on Penny! 😀

  18. Cathy & Banjo says:

    I love love love the pic of Eko with his head in the young girl’s hand. He’s such a sweet pup!

  19. Now you can go there morning noon and night!

  20. So much to be said for ‘walkable’ neighborhoods. Good for you.
