    Some of you may remember a couple weeks ago when I was asking about pet-friendly hotel stuff, and talked a little bit about our weekend trip to Chicago.

    Well, we went... and Morgan went with us! I took a lot of pictures... nothing really significant, but hey, it's pictures. ;) Be warned, though, when I say there are a lot of pictures, I mean A LOT of pictures. I think about 40 of them. I started while we were still at home with the intention of documenting the whole trip.

    And here we go!

    Hey Morgan. Are you ready for a CAR RIDE??

    Yay car!

    Um... can we GO now?? I'm ready!

    This is at the oasis just outside Chicago. (I think... I'm not 100% sure where we were.)

    Still at the rest area. Drinking water out of his new Outward Hound bowl.

    A couple cute pictures of him riding in the back of the car. He slept for most of the trip but poked his nose up a couple of times.

    Hai.

    Are we there yet?

    The hotel gave Morgan a whole goody-bag of stuff. Mostly it was treats and poop bags, but it did include this toy. He adores it!

    Why must I wait?

    I don't know what he was looking at, but the picture turned out funny so I kept it.

    Displaying the hole he chewed in just those 3 minutes I was taking pictures. The toy has since been designated a "supervised only" toy. You can see how much he wants it in the background.

    And now we're going out on the town! (That's my husband, btw. I don't know why he looks so intense in this picture, though.)

    This is the next morning. We came back to the riverfront because it was so nice.

    A few poses of Morgan and Jon.

    One more at the crosswalk...
    [​IMG]

    I am pretty proud of this last series of pictures, just because they illustrate Morgan's reaction (or non-reaction) to a whole crowd of people walking by.

    *DONE!*

    I know that is kind of a lame way to end the series... but right after this we went back to the hotel, packed up, and drove home. We were all pretty tired, so we didn't take any more pictures after that.

    So there you go! I have to say it was a successful road trip to the big city. A ton of fun and well worth it!

    Thanks! The ones in the hotel were a little wonky. I haven't figured out how to deal with low-light all that well yet, but the ones we took walking around the city did turn out pretty well!


    We had a lot of fun, too. I think Morgan enjoyed that he got to tag along on this road trip. We're looking forward to traveling with Morgan more in the future. :)


    Thanks! He is really growing into himself very well. We always get a ton of comments on his coat when we are out, and I always get a warm, fuzzy feeling when people notice how good he looks. :) So thanks again! :D
     
  16. Great pics! It looks like he had so much fun. He is growing up so well, too. He looks like he is in great shape, and his coat is just beautiful. Gosh, I just can't get over what handsome young man he is now!

    Thank you! :D He really is growing up to be quite a dog, if I may say so myself. It's really hard to look back at his puppy pictures, just because in so many of them I have to stop and look twice, thinking, "Seriously? He used to be THAT LITTLE????" :p (I'm sure you've had the same feeling with Raja, too. They just grow up sooooo fast!)


    Yeah, he does have quite the tongue. I don't know where all the spots come from, but it give him just that little extra personality!


    Erm... I think we got a little confused here... Morgan went to Chicago and got a new toy. ;)

    In any case, yes, he did indeed enjoy it. :D
