Ralphie Thoughts

I wonder when someone will play catch with me and throw Duckers around? It’s either that, or I will use him for a chin rest! Chin rest wins.

Hey guys, I love my bandana. Are you taking me to a hoe-down anytime soon? Where’s my cowboy hat?

Excuse me, will you let me in now?

20120420-191857.jpg

Hrumpf! I’m really tired after a long walk, time for my favorite past time, a nap.

20120420-191915.jpg

Whoa, you startled me. I was getting some much needed beauty rest!

Guys, did you forget about me? Please let me in. I still need to eat dinner!

Spring has Sprung! Wag that tail and get inspired outside!

Today has been a special day.

Not only has it been beautiful outside, I was able to enjoy the sunshine in person when “my mom” took me out for a nice, long walk at County Farm Park! (I love her special shortened work days this week!) Here is a picture of me taken in front of the park entrance:

So, if you haven’t done so already, get outside and enjoy the sunshine today. It’s quite rejuvenating and refreshing!

Hailing all fellow happy dogs and their parents, get outside and wag your tail in the great outdoors at MY favorite park or one closer to where you live!

Spring has sprung. Get out there and enjoy it while it lasts!

Ralphie at his Grandparents Part 2

Gallery

This gallery contains 15 photos.

Ralphie had a great time at his grandparent’s house. He was certainly kept busy! Each morning breakfast was delicious. Contrary to his previous concern, he was completely content with eating from his travel dishes after all! After breakfast, Ralphie decided … Continue reading

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.

20120315-221356.jpg

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

20120315-221724.jpg

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!

20120317-123926.jpg

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.

20120317-130454.jpg

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!

Ralphie wants to know, what’s your favorite city to visit?
