Break out your sunscreen and beach umbrellas, it was 55 degrees here in Chicago yesterday! As spring comes to life so too does the city and its people. The thaw noticeably improves everyone’s attitude with the promise of brighter days ahead.Spring is not just for people though. The sun charged my solar powered pups and had them looking like a couple of springs bouncing around the beach.Montrose Dog Beach, Chicago, blog,  marking our territory, rhodesian ridgeback

And Penny only occasionally touched the ground

Spring is all about new beginnings and we got to witness a wonderful one. For the very first time, my brother brought Doc (his eight year-old adopted pointer) to the beach. It was glorious.

Doc tore across the beach with the excitement of a young puppy

Doc and Penny kicked up their paws and blew their ears back

It was a beautiful whirlwind of sand and smiles

After playing with Penny, Doc learned a very important lesson – how to avoid Penny!

Step 1: Hide with Eko near a human while Penny finds a new target

Step 2: Relax and enjoy watching another pup try to keep up with Penny

You are never too old for your first day at the beach

Spring is in the air, and so are these pups. Can’t wait for more warm weather adventures with Eko, Penny and Doc.

Comments for These Pups Have Some Spring

  1. Glorious days! Another tremendous welcome for Doc… So glad it’s going well and that you were all able to enjoy the beach together.

  2. to see the smile of a dog is just great… it’s more than to hit the lottery jackpot… ok… nearly lol

  3. Woohoo!! Look at ’em go!! 😀 Doc lucked into a great canine family. 🙂

    Fun times ahead for all!! Love the expression on Doc’s face. “Really! We get to run crazy like this!” Lucky guy to find his forever home where this is a regular part of his world :).

    Happy Spring to all. And welcome back to your beloved beach

    Wonderful!! Doc can’t believe how great life can be. Eko is looking good. And Penny.. well Penny, Penny, Penny…

  6. In typically German Shorthair genius strategy, Doc is proving he’s one savvy pooch and no ordinary fool for Penny to crash into…repeatedly. Lucky for him that girl is a mover. Enjoy the beach and enjoy Spring!

    Fantastic to see Doc out and about – and oh so happy and why wouldn’t he be being part of this awesome family. I love the shot with Doc and Eko just watching as Penny goes racing by – that is classic. Great to see them all having so much fun.

    How fun for his first beach trip! Poor Penny is a pest like Bailie, but they will mature at some point…I hope!

  10. we couldn’t agree with you more! Soooo happy to see Doc SMILING like that!!!

    I love seeing happy dogs and this post definitely is full of them! Doc surely fits in well with your group, and it is perfectly fine to stop and take a break when you need one, and watch the hoopla as it races past you!

  13. Thank goodness our foot of ice on the front walkway is finally melting! And we finally can let our sheltie hang out on the front porch! 🙂 Ellie

  14. Those first warm days are always so exciting! For us and our pups, obviously.

  15. Look at doc go he’s in heaven

  16. Ohh I am heading over to America tomorrow from UK so keep that sun in the continent :-).
