The winter weather continues to yo-yo here in Chicago, and this week we have temperatures as high as 40F. The fluctuating weather gave Penny the opportunity to learn her beloved beach is not gone forever. Montrose Dog Beach, Chicago, Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, marking our territory, dogs, pet-friendly

Just when Penny had come to terms with the fact her beach had become a tundra, she made an interesting discovery

Wait a second, there’s something under this ice…

“Eko, come look at this!!”

My little prospector struck sand-gold

Penny needs no excuse to romp, but the soft sand under her paws definitely put a little extra pep in her step

“Woohoo, the beach is back!”

Winter undoubtedly has more frozen weather in store, but we certainly didn’t mind practicing for spring!

Comments for Spring Training at Montrose Dog Beach

  1. you found such a mammoth there right? or soe gold nuggets? btw: there is something on your nose, can you come a little closer to the screen?

  2. I wouldn’t mind that weather at all either. So is your bed a sandbox like mine is in the summer with all that sand?

  3. Such great photos! I love the first one of Penny bounding in midair, and her curiosity is palpable in the shot of her digging with those adorable ears over her head! Looks to me like Penny has taken the lead in the frivolities! We should add another category to the Doggy Olympics: Beach Frivolities, and Penny would definitely get the gold. 😀

    Don’t you just love it when new discoveries are made for them – that feeling unfoot or between their toes – hilarious!

    You two are lucky you don’t have my fur as you would have been a total mess and needed a serious bath!

    We aren’t so lucky to have a beach by us, but we do a darn good job digging in our toy boxes! Oh the discoveries we find at the bottom!

  12. FUN!!!! Looks like they had a blast getting a “sort of ” touch of Spring – or at least a bit of a thaw!
