So Mum got me up REAL EARLY... actually woke me up, and put my HARNESS on. YIPPEEEE! That means I'm goin' OUT!
We drove a long time on the highway and parked by the LAKE! But Mum wouldn't let me go play in the surf... she said LATER. We walked up this bridge over a very busy Lake Shore Drive. It was weird lookin' down and seein' CARS go by so fast under me.
We came off the bridge into a BIG field with tents and lots and lots of DOGS!!! At almost every tent they gave away "doggie" bags (hee hee) with treats, frisbees and BALLS!!!!!!!! This is FUN!!
This thing we were here to do was PAWS Chicago's Run for Their Lives 8K Run and 4K Walk. Mum and I met up with Nancy-lady and Daisy (Winston's girlfriend from Bark In the Park). She was a REAL nice pup, and we got along fine.
We walked up hills and down hills, and through a lot of MUD from last night's rain. It was a nice, SUNNY day and we took some great pictures. All 2,500 pups walked around the outside of Lincoln Park Zoo (they wouldn't let us inside the zoo... bummer) and we could SMELL all sorts of neat animal smells in the wind.
After the PAWS walk, Daisy and I walked over to The Furry Bistro. I got some great dog bakery goods and Daisy got a pretty new red Puppia harness... VERY nice! Daisy got to chase some WHIRLYS (squirrels) up into the trees on the way through the park... BONUS!
Then, Mum took me back to the BEACH and I got to chase the WAVES!!! Mum said if it doesn't rain tomorrow we'll come back with Dad and the LONGER leash! Can't wait! I LOVE my life!!!!!
p.s. Mum and Dad took me BACK to the BEACH on Monday. We didn't stay too long because it started to THUNDERSTORM, but I got to eat the breakers enough that I BARFED my breakfast up all over the beach. (Those goofy seagulls LOVED it). Mum had to keep me on a lead 'cuz I still don't come TOO well... hee hee
