On Sunday, Frasier, who is undoubtedly a suburban dog through and through, had his first visit into the city in 12 years. What started as a ride down I-55, along Lake Shore Drive and through Rogers Park, ended with an early afternoon jaunt at the Montrose Dog Beach.
Accompanied by my uncle visiting from Portland, Josh and myself, Frasier quickly adapted to the beachy terrain. True to form, he ignored the countless other dogs, steered clear of the water, and instead opted to patrol the shore while doggedly (pun intended) marking his scent all across the beach.
I think a return trip is most definitely in order.
