Daily Walk in 10 Pictures: Roscoe Village

Each Chicago neighborhood has its own unique personality, and the other day we were able to venture off with the pooches to explore Roscoe Village for our Daily Walk. Roscoe Village is a quaint, family-oriented neighborhood located just north of us. A neighborhood of greenery, sidewalk chalk, and a main area to stroll. With ice-cream stores and benches for resting. Victorian-pained homes with equally colorfully painted stairs. And double-wide strollers locked up to poles.
Ms M worked on her modeling poses, but I think she needs more variety:
There are many restaurants, bars, cafes, little boutiques and even thrift stores. And everything just seems a little quieter.
Though it was nice to visit, Ms. M smiled all the way home eager to get back to the familiar hustle and bustle of our neighborhood.

maybe her modeling poses don't have much variety, but i don't tend to get tired of the few she offers!

Roscoe Village is a great neighborhood. I tend to watch a lot of games at Village Tap. It's getting a liiiiittle bit to strollerie for me these days but it's a fun visit. I am glad Miss M and Mr. B enjoyed themselves!

My best friend that lives in Chicago always says I should check out Roscoe Village. Looks like I'll have to check it out next time I am in Chicago!

How pretty! I just luvs that in your city, there's lots of different little neighborhoods with their own pawsonalities.

Now, as for Miss M - I just think that when you find something that works, you gotta stick with it. And Miss M's modeling poses definitely WORK!

It's so fun to take the dogs to new neighborhoods where they get to experience new sights and smells. They seem to have an extra spring in their step. We definitely don't do it often enough.
