Pooches: Daily Walk in 10 Pictures 07.28.10

We have been so lucky this summer with the amazing weather. We spend our days sitting out on the porch with the pooches prepping for the upcoming school year or doing work for our summer classes. Before becoming a teacher, I never realized how much work is done outside of the classroom. Regardless, we are trying to take full advantage of the weather in this great city of ours. With Wilma in the mix, we have been forced to leave our porch and go out and explore the city and meet new people. We have been to more street festivals this year than all of our years in Chicago. This past weekend, we went out to the inaugural Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival in Logan Square where we sat on the grass and the pooches met a ton of people. Mr. B took some snap shots with his new camera.
People were sitting all around us and like the social butterfly that she is, Ms. M would go from group to group.
People walking by could not resist Ms. M's smiling face and they would all have to stop to say hi. In the meantime, Wilma would just lay by us and hang out.
A loves hang out at the park and with Wilma in the mix, A had a companion that would lay nicely in the grass. In addition, Wilma would stop and smell the flowers, unlike Ms. M who would stop to eat the flowers and Mr. B who would stop to pee on the flowers.
Since we had three pooches, we were all forced to go on the daily walks together. It is always interesting to see what photos come out on Mr. B's camera.
Our neighborhood has an eclectic mix of different cultures that can be seen on our daily walk. We have Alcala's Western Wear, a country western clothing megastore,mobile ice cream carts and elotes carts,
permission walls on the side of buildings,
and a gelato place, Black Dog Gelato. The pooches are waiting nicely while A gets the cucumber and rosewater gelato that she craves everyday. We are happy to write that Wilma is on a foster to adopt adventure and we hope her new family will be her forever family.

Roo didn't know they had "permission" walls. Just thought some odd humans painted walls at night. I learn something new every day :)

Oh my gosh! Fingers and toes crossed for Wilma. I might have gotten a tear in my eye too thinking that she could potentially be with her forever family. She seems like such a good girl, so I'm sure they will snatch her right up. Good luck, Wilma!

Love the picture of Wilma smelling the flowers. It is so cool all the walks you go on. Our human wants to know, is it not been super duper HOT in the City. We know it has been HOT HOT in our little city south of you (Bloomington). You sure are showing Wilma the ropes. Sniffs, The Hounddogs

Hello Pitties,
we are so glad you came over and that we are friends.
you guys are adorable and mummy sends heaps of hugs for you both.
yeah..u guys are right. it's not about a backyard, it's about a large space in your heart. we too live in the city. being labradawgs we need to run a lot daily and the tiny garden we have is just too small. so we go out for walks everyday. thankfully we have found some places pretty close to our home where we can run around a lot.
have a grrrt day and keep us pupdated in the event of your finding something reelly intersting!
wags,
gin n bud
