Chicago, my kind of town!

Today, we took a ride up to Montrose Harbor and did some walking. I've been here quite a few times as it is close to my Dog Beach. Mom and Dad first brought me here a year ago when I was just a wee pup. This is what I looked like then...
and here I am now. Do you think I've changed at all? He he he!!
Mom kept lagging behind as she is always trying to take the perfect picture. I've got to constantly give her that lets go look.
While it was warm (in the 80's) and sunny, the wind was fierce! Look how it was blowing my ears straight up!
I kept peering over the edge of the pier we were walking on. Mom was worried I would fall or be blown off. No worries Mom, I know how to swim!
Since I didn't get to go swimming at all, I had to climb up on a wall to get a better look at Lake Michigan.
Mom and Dad are always trying to get the perfect picture of me with the Chicago skyline in the background, so once again, I was posed over and over and picture after picture was taken. Here's one of the best (according to mom).
And here is Dad's favorite. The tall building on the left is the John Hancock Center and the tall one way back on the right is the Sears Tower! Mom says one day we'll walk around downtown and get better skyscraper pics. We'll see how long it takes us to do that.
OK, time to head home, it is getting way too windy!
'Till Next Time,
Kirby
