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

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.

This is Ralphie, a Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix, with a big personality (and a pretty impressive pair of ears). He's so cute that i couldn't choose which picture to post. So here are all three.

Daisy and Bear

Say hello to Daisy and Bear.
It's always a treat to run into these two little characters on our morning walk.

Two Little Cuties Enjoying a Beautiful Day

These two little cuties were nice enough to interrupt their stroll 
this afternoon to pose for me, showing off their noble profiles. 
The little guy on the left is a Rogers Parker, who was showing 
his guest all the sights. 

This is one of those embarrassing (but not uncommon) occasions 
when i've made a point of asking a dog's name and then completely 
forgotten it by the time i got home and was ready to post on the blog. 
So, if these little cuties' humans happen to see this and would like me 
to include their dogs' names and breeds, send me a message.

Dakota Likes This Weather More than You Do

This is Dakota, one of the sweetest and prettiest dogs in Rogers Park --
or anywhere else. She does not understand why the rest of us are
complaining about the weather.  She thinks this is a beautiful day.

Dog Day Morning

It was a beautiful morning for a walk on the beach. Dogs of all sizes and shapes, and in all manner of winter couture, were out enjoying the sunshine and getting together with old friends and new. 

Here are Anson and Cyril posing nicely, 
while Elote casually strolls by in his elegant winter coat.

This is the wildly popular Baron. 
Seriously, he seemed to know everyone--dog and human--
 on the beach. He is wearing a gorgeous winter coat 
that his human made for him.

The noble Boo finds a stick worthy of his attention. 
This is Boo's second appearance in this blog. I first met him 
last June, soaking wet after a romp in the lake.
I try not to play favorites, but I really love this big boy!
