Enjoying a City Park

Due to the NATO Summit, we decided not to have a SociaBulls walk this past weekend. This gave us a great opportunity to check out a new walking route and lucky for the pooches they got to catch up with their longtime, good SociaBulls friends, Petey
and Lily.
It is a shame that this is the first time we visited this park, even though it is only a couple miles from our place. We pride ourselves on being quite knowledgeable about the city, especially since we have lived in our neighborhood for over 15 years and we teach/taught in both inner city and magnet city schools. Even though Chicago is such a large city, our city has been called one of the most racially and socioeconomically divided city. There are so many neighborhoods that we have only visited due to volunteering obligations or functions that involve our students and their parents, and even then we didn't spend the time to explore the neighborhood.
So it is nice that searching for new stomping grounds for SociaBulls have taken us to so many different types of neighborhoods in our great city and every neighborhood we have visited so far have been very inviting and it is such a pity that we needed SociaBulls to really explore our city and dispel any misconceptions we had about our own city. Hopefully through our group walks, we introduce others to all the amazing neighborhoods in Chicago.

I am also so guilty of this! Before getting 2 dogs and then a car and then joining sociabulls, I spent way too much time in my little corner of the city. Now that I know what's out there, my local, daily walks with the boys are REALLY boring. You have definitely inspired us to get out there and explore!

Petey and Lily are gorgeous dogs. Miss M and Mr. B are always in good company.
