A walk in the park

Ninety-five percent of the time I feel that I'm making very little headway with Bilbo's training. However, taking pictures in the park today reminded me that his sit-stay is seriously solid these days. Sadly, his brother emphasized this with his woeful ability to do anything he is told. Buster has somehow escaped any serious training for far too long and it's becoming apparent as his rehab progresses and his frisky side comes out.

Somehow, I still managed to get some nice shots of the boys before the sun went down. We had a delightful stroll through Humboldt Park, one of my favorite places in Chicago.

"Just sit still while she fiddles with the little box for
a moment then we can go and sniff for Squiggles!"

"You only get two ears if you throw me a ball"

Who's the King of the Castle?

"Please make the idiot sit still, he's driving me loopy!"

"I am a noble pioneer of the Midwest"

"Me sit on flowers"

"Come on then, we're done!"


  1. we see you have the gentle leader - does it ever hurt your pups nose?

  2. Buster's never had a problem with it, but he doesn't really pull that hard anymore - we should probably phase it out.
    Billy used to get sore spots when I used one for him. I actually made a furry cover for the strap and he looked very silly. I switched the harness in the end mainly because it just worked better for him.

  3. Your photos look so great! I love seeing everyone's view of Chicago with dogs, and getting ideas for more places to walk.

  4. those flowers really bring out the bewooty of your furs ;)
    you both look adorabull
