How to Be a Tourist With Your Dogs: Chicago in the Summer (And Views from Your Hometown)
Some of our favorite things we're looking forward to this summer:
Chicago Canine Mercury Cruise:
the recap from our first year.
Outdoor Movies in the Park
movies in local parks all summer, and we can bring our pooches! We bring our big comfortable 'picnic blanket' that fits all of us, sandwiches from the Italian deli, freshly-baked Polish pastries and some Orangina. Last year even Miss M had a good time.
Making Like a European Vacation:
Pier Picnics, Shopping Local with the Pooches, Desert-filled Walks, and Having Conversations at Cafes (without our computers!).
Chicago's Annual Gay Pride Parade:
top last year. The prior year Mr. B even matched many of the parade marchers. Costume ideas anyone?
Last year we also LOVED reading about what everyone else does with their dogs in their hometown. And we would love to hear more! Show us around your hometown and let us see what pooches in other areas do. You can see the examples and read all the incredible ways to be a Tourist in Your Own City here.
What other big summer plans do you have with your dogs?
