I've been soooo busy this week! I volunteered for Safe Humane Chicago twice. On Wednesday I went to Ruggles Elementary School and on Thursday I went to Finkl Elementary School. Here's a picture of me at Finkl in the office after our presentation.
I'm wearing my purple vest, but you can't really see it. Here's another picture of me at Finkl with another Ambassador Dog, Pudge.
You can see my vest. On Wednesday I got groomed at Soggy Paws. I don't really like being groomed. I don't think it's necessary. I like to do my own grooming at the beach. First I soak in the cold water. Ahhhh, cleansing. Then I roll in the cool sand. Ooooh, body scrub. Then I lie in the front yard for several hours. It's called air drying. Then I shake really well and my fur gets all fluffy. See, totally self-grooming. Clippers? Who needs nail clippers? Not me! Hey! I got clipped. Hmph! The only good thing about getting groomed is that I always get a frozen treat in the car on the way home. This time it was a peanut butter and soy milk pupcicle with molasses. Mmmmmmm! On Thursday after I left Finkl Elementary I went to Buckingham Fountain. Whoa! It's huge! Where do I go in? I wasn't allowed. But I'm thirsty! And hot! Here's a picture of me in front of Buckingham Fountain.
My tongue is hanging out because I'm so hot and thirsty. Here's another picture of me in front of the fountain.
My tongue is still hanging out. I bet I could fit between those fence posts. I wasn't even allowed to try it. Then we walked down to the gardens by Lake Shore Drive. There was so much to smell! Here's a picture of me by some tulips.
Tongue still hanging out. Then we went by another fountain. Here's a picture of me by another fountain.
Hey, there's no fence! Does that mean I can go in? It didn't. Are we almost done here? My human tried to take me in another part of the park, but I wasn't allowed. Here's a picture of me by the sign saying I'm not allowed.
Whatever. Can we go now? We left. I give Buckingham Fountain 1 paw. I mean, what's the point? Then we went to Jackson Park Harbor. My human tricked me down onto the dock with treats. Hey! I don't want to be here! I don't like it when the ground moves around like this – it's not safe! We left the dock and went up on the grass for a little while. I just wanted to go home and sleep. It's been a long day. Finally we went home. My humans tried to take me for a walk later, but I wouldn't go. Can't you people see I'm tired? Sigh.
