We had a blustery, snowy Saturday here in Chicago and you could barely see a few feet in front of your face at times.  In other words, it was perfect beach weather.

Except the beach disappeared.  In its place we found a frozen tundra

Eko and his pal Riley were undeterred and bounded after each other along the frozen shore line

But after a particularly brutal blast of snow, Eko gave me the signal…

  

Eko’s “It’s time to go home and make a fire” face

   

I was happy to oblige!

As Eko gave a contented yawn in front of the fire, he had an important decision to make. He wanted to sleep, but he also wanted to be as close to the fire as possible.  Which would he choose?  As it turned out – both.

With my legs as his fireside pillow, Eko was snoring in no time

 If happiness is a warm puppy, then I think I was just about the happiest person in Chicago on Saturday!

Comments for Winter Weekend White Out

  1. yes, the firplace is the best place and Eko made the right decision – both :o)

    Nothing better than romping around in the snow until you are dead dog tired and then having a snooze by the fireplace! Nice work, Eko!

  3. You, Eko and Riley are three tough fellas braving all that beautiful-looking snow! I can’t imagine how cold it was. The final picture looks like my kinda happy time, too – just add some unfinished crochet – and perfect! Keep your chins up boys – it won’t be too long until your sunny beach is back.

  4. What a perfect winter day! I love how you caught Eko mid-yawn. 🙂

  5. Why do our parents love taking pictures of our snow covered faces?? Hmmmm…. Maybe because there’s nothing cuter! I love you, Eko.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    Nothing like a cozy fire and nap after a cold blast of snow. I’m still waiting for the snow here.

  7. Eko, you are just the sweetest thing on 4 paws.
    Wally & Sammy (and their besotted mom)

    Sounds like a great day to me!!

  9. Hope your weather improved since then. I bet it is darn cold with no shelter and wind sweeping across the open lake. Eko doesn’t have much meat on them there bones. Cosy up guys, January is almost done 😀
