A Triumvirate of Chinese Crested Dogs


My beloved little mutt is always delighted to meet dogs that are her own size or smaller. She likes to be reassured that she's not the smallest dog in Rogers Park. Needless to say, she was beside herself with joy when this pack of three Chinese Cresteds all came up and invited her to play.

The Mighty Thor


Thor is a handsome, chill, and very big fellow that i encountered while strolling through Rogers Park yesterday. He's a dignified guy with a lovely, plush coat. All I had with me were the tiny little Zuke's treats that i give my own mini-dog, but Thor took one from my hand as delicately as a debutante taking an hors d'oeuvre.

Bonjour, Bosko!


This dapper little gentleman in an elegant plaid bowtie is Bosko, a shiba inu mix. He's as sweet as he is handsome.

Big and Little Buddies


It's a beautiful day for the last outdoor Glenwood Sunday Market of the season (The first indoor market will be held in the Glenwood Bar on Sunday, 8 November). Because my usually charming canine companion was not on her best behavior this morning, i went to the market without her, which made it a lot easier to stop and take a picture of these two best buddies. 
Perennial crowd-pleaser and past star of this blog, Ralphie, was there with his giant ears as well. Sorry i called you Louie, Ralphie; if it's any consolation, i'm even worse at remembering people's names.

Lest you think it is easy to get a good picture of two dogs,
here is what 80% of my pictures look like.

A Chorus Line of Cuties

These three mini-schnauzers were delighted that the rain finally stopped
and they could go out for a leisurely Saturday stroll. Nevertheless,
they graciously paused and posed so i could take their picture.

There's a New Maisie in Town

Maisie,
a very sweet and affectionate Newfoundland pup.
I don't know how to break the news to my own little dog that she is not the only Maisie in Rogers Park, and she's definitely not the biggest.  This great big, cuddly Newfoundland pup stole my heart at the farmers market this morning.

Two Little Stallones

It wasn't easy getting a good picture of these two little action heroes: Rocky and Rambo. I would have loved to have gotten a good picture of their faces, but they were too busy pursuing whatever mission they were on to sit still and smile for the camera.
