Dog days…. July 9, 2012

Today was the last day of Libertyville’s Dog Days of Summer.  I collared up my two pups, and walked to the dowtown area.  There I sat, with my two water-fearing labs, watching other dogs excitedly jump into a big pool of water.  Sadie & Galagher objected much less to walking through Cook Park and being fed countless doggie treats, and the hugs from the kids who petted them relentlessly wasn’t half bad either.  Galagher learned quickly that sitting nicely and offering up a paw to “shake” would often bring an extra treat.  Sadie seemed to enjoy seeking out the ones that people had hidden in their pockets for their own pet.  The weather was perfect, and my four-legged kids were on their best behavior.  And, I couldn’t help but notice, that the dogs seemed to bring out the nice in everyone.  Somehow, I think the world would be a better place if everyone had a dog 🙂
