Daily Walk: Miss M and Mr. B go to the carnival and other stuff

Before we knew it, we were in October, which is the greatest month to sit in front of the TV or in my case in front of my computer with a TV tuner (we don't have a TV) and waste the day and night away watching every game possible. However, there is a small catch to my ideal weekends and evenings: the weather. Whenever the weather is nice, A loves to go on these long walks around the neighborhood and enjoy whatever event Chicago throws our way. This weekend, we walked all the way down to the carnival near the West Loop. Miss M was so excited to take her very first ride on a ferris wheel, 
but sadly, pooches are not allowed and Miss M made sure we knew how she felt about this injustice. On the other hand, Mr. B was having a great time, winning new best stuffies. 
Sadly, he couldn't remember that he left his new best stuffy on his head. On our walk home, we decided to stop by the United Center. The funny thing is that I bike by the United Center twice a day, everyday and the only time we ever go to the United Center is to catch a Bulls or Blackhawks game. Walking the pooches really help us appreciate all the great sites and sounds of Chicago. Since we live pretty close to the United Center and going to a game is fairly common, we take the statues and all the other touristy aspects of the United Center for granted. 
Miss M was especially perplexed by all the tourists posing Like Mike... 
The highlight of Mr. B's walk to the United Center was not the statues of Stan Mikita or Bobby Hull behind a fence, but the famous pigeon behind the fence. 
Soon enough, the United Center will be so crowded that Mr. B won't be able to pose with the famous pigeon. Here are the pooches giving us their best game face.

How fun! It's too far for us to walk to do anything - all of our trips include a car ride!
