Ralphie in the City

Ralphie wants to go to a big city. He decided on Chicago, which I thought was a good choice, as it’s only a 4 hour drive! He looked at me and said, “I want to go to Chicago and stay downtown.” I said okay.

After all, how can you say “no” to that sweet face?

I asked where he wanted to stay for the weekend. After he researched online, Ralphie picked out the W Hotel in Chicago. Check out the lobby! He was thrilled by all the couches he was able to choose from! You know how much he loves a couch, and now he had twelve!

When we arrived, he said he was hungry so we ordered a cheese plate.

Once we got into our room, he fell in love with the cozy space. There was even a small couch! He was in heaven.

He liked the big bed, but thought the bathroom was too small.

I reminded him that not every dog gets to stay in such a nice place. “Some dogs have to stay at a Petco hotel, or kennel.” I mean look at the beautiful vintage tile floors you get to walk on!

Ralphie realized that he was one lucky dog.

The next day we went shopping along the famous Magnificent Mile! We stopped at Room & Board, only the best for Ralphie! He liked this bed:

Then we stopped by Saks. Ralphie loved the architecture of the building.

After a morning of shopping, we went to the Billy Goat Tavern for lunch. Remember the SNL episode with Jim Belushi: “Cheesborger, Cheeseborger, Cheesborger!” That’s the place!

Ralphie liked how the restrooms were labeled “Nanny” and “Billy”.

Later after a long day of walking, Ralphie made a healthy food decision and ordered a veggie plate! What a smart dog.

The day was a complete success! On our walk home we saw pretty blue lights on a line of trees.

It was a great day in the Windy City!
