Pooches: Daily Walk in 10 Pictures 07.14.10

Though it rained at times throughout this weekend, we found nice windows of opportunity to take the pooches on walks. Our neighbors down the block (all in their 20s and 30s) found a window of nice weather to throw a kiddie pool party in the middle of the sidewalk. Ms. M really wanted to jump in the pool, but we were worried that one slip of her toenail would lead to a disastrous end to their kiddie pool and party. The pack of two pitties in the city is now
a pack of three pitties in the city. Wilma is now walking in stride with the two beasts and
even sits at corners with the two beasts.
With three dogs, sometimes one will stick his huge head and ruin a great picture of the other pooches. This would have been such a great picture of Wilma and Ms. M.
It was great to see all these families having fun at the kid fest part of West Fest. They had bands, games and even pony rides.
There are so many aspects of our neighborhood that we take for granted like this live chicken place, that has been here for years. On random mornings, we will hear roosters crowing and the clucking of hens being delivered.
In the shop, you will see chicken running around the store.
Just a block from us is this fresh fruit truck. Though it would seem that this would be a staple of our neighborhood, seeing that we have a live chicken stop, this truck has only started coming by last year. I'm not sure how fresh their fruit really is, since some of them look like they have Jewel price stickers.

Way to gets yourself in the picture, Mr. B! You most certainly don't wanna be left out!

And live chickens? Do peoples buy them as pets? Or is it like a petting zoo?

Oh, and I'm most completely in luvs with Wilma. Please puts her on the next bus to Collie-rado. K-thx.

I think you need a whole post on the Live Chicken Place. I must have more details!!! Does the pack ever gets to go in and visit??

Another admirer of Wilma... and I'm secretly hoping she finds her forever home with you. I'll miss seeing her cute face when she leaves... maybe she can start a blog too!

Wags,
Zona

Chicago is such a great place. What is up with The Live Chicken place? I Agree with Zona I think you should do entire post of that place.

Mr. B is too funny! I'm glad Wilma has learned such good manners with you - she's adorable and will find a great forever home.

I love going on these walks with your pack. Ms M's expressions are priceless!

Roo said...

This pitty would like to join your pitties on a walk in your city. Especially to the chicken store where one might encounter a Roo-ster ;)

I love that first picture of Ms. M. Just want to kiss her sweet face! She is sooo precious!

You guys are so good - walking together on your leashes and all in the BIG city! Not sure we could handle that! Especially if there are LIVE chickens walking around!

BTW - you mentioned wanting camping tips. We would love to share anything we know to help you have a fabulous camping experience. Email us and we'll chat! (We don't see an email address for you guys)

Wags! Mr. Nubbin'

Mr. B demands his face time! Love it!

Hmmm... Nothing like fresh fruit from Jewel! It reminds me of a conversation I had with one of my little guys in class. We'd baked a cake from scratch (I try to do that at least once a year so they have the experience) and a few weeks later, we were having a conversation at the lunch table. I asked them what their favorite thing was that their moms cooked. He said his was cake. I asked him how she made it. He said "You just go to Wal-Mart and buy it!" rofl

Does this mean that Wilma is staying with you?

brooke said...

Wilma seems to fit in quite nicely!
That chicken place is very interesting! Is it a restaurant? Do they sell eggs there? what is it exactly?

Lola said...

Wilma looks just right with her foster siblings. Even if she decides to move to a different forever home she's getting a wonderful finishing school education with all of you. I get a little jealous of your walks. Those are the kind I like best. Suburban walks are just not as interesting unless you drive to a town first.

wags, Lola

I love the "oops" picture. Luffy is such a turd when it comes to taking pictures, and he's only one dog! But he always looks away or moves just as I'm pushing the button.

Benny and Lily said...

What a fun walk. We are not sure we want to know what happens to the chickens. Hope you had fun

Your pitties are just the most precious looking fur-kids. I think I need to have you come down and give me some training tips on how you keep them so calm around everything and walk so well. HoundDogMom

Kari in WeHo said...

the nice part of living in LA is the fresh fruit guys get their produce from the orchards direct :)

Dory and the Mama said...

Another great walk! We really enjoy getting to see Chicago through you and the dogs' eyes!!

i need to know more about this live chicken place, too. :) do they sell chickens, or is it just a place to buy fresh eggs? at any rate, the pooches seem mighty intrigued with the store. haha.

Mary said...

Ditto everyone else-more details on the live chicken store. That's bizarre. As far as I'm concerned, pool on sidewalk = free game for dogs needing to cool off.

Mr. Pip said...

Hi - I thought I respond to your question on your blog rather than on mine. City vs. suburbs. We are city people and the idea of the suburbs is not appealing, BUT the city is much more expensive (with kids) than the suburbs and our neighborhood school isn't the best. There's also the safety issue - we have a yard, but could never let our daughter or dog play in it unsupervised. People wander through our yard sometimes and leave behind trash and worse ...

On the other hand, we love the diversity, energy, and culture of the city and really want her to grow up in an urban environment. It is a really a tough call and I don't think there is a right or wrong answer - advantages to both.
