River Park RAMPAGE

Hi there my loyal ‘Slopers’! Sorry for taking so long to get this post up. I had all the photos ready to go but then my Dad got sick so I’ve been on call for nursing duties the last few days. The nursing just means lots of extra naps, even during the daytime! Can’t beat that, right?

Anyway, I probably built this up too much in my last post, but I did really go on an expedition this past weekend, though it might not have really been a RAMPAGE or THRILLING or TURBULENT.

My Dad and I started out on our usual after-dinner walk, but then we just kept on going! It was the first warm-ish day we’d had for many months so with a spring in our step, we strolled all the way to River Park. I know, it’s pretty much the most generic name for a park ever, but it actually is a really beautiful park the runs right along the Chicago River (which explains the name I guess).

As soon as we got there I noticed there were all these gigantic brown bean-pod things on the ground. I eat green beans from time to time so I thought they would taste the same but boy was I wrong. They were pretty disgusting, although I still tried to eat every single one I came across. I was hopeful there might be one that tasted as good as a green bean. No such luck.


Then we strolled around under the trees for a bit and took a few posed pictures. My Dad tricked me into thinking he had some baby carrots with him which is why he got me at the top of my posing game. I don’t know how I fell for that again – it’s definitely not the first time he’s pulled that move. Next time we do this I’ll be sure to make him stop by the fridge before we leave so I can WITNESS him actually putting the b.c.’s into his pockets.

Head on:




And full-body, with a three-quarter twist (one of my specialties):


We then trekked over to the river. There’s a fence that blocks direct access to the river so I wasn’t able to go for a dip, but it still was a pretty sight, especially since the sun had begun setting. I can’t wait to go back again (if the weather here ever decides to cooperate!).

    First things first, I have to say how handsome you are Sid! Despite the lack of treats you posed superbly! I think you need a manage though to make sure you are adequately paid. Hope your dad feels better.

    Wow Sid,, that was a real excursion you went on! And you are soo good at your modeling skills too.
    Its a wise decision to watch dad next time- to make sure those little things are in his pocket.. you know the things I am talking about.

    SPRING IS COMING! At last! At least, here anyway. Sure hope winter is over for you, too! And many baby carrots are in your future.
    PS, tell your dad that he can grow carrots, especially the little ones (check the seed packet), in a styrofoam cooler. You can have carrots on your patio if you have one! Or back step!

    Sorry to hear you Dad was sick, you must have been a great nurse. And we are sorry to tell you that today’s picture was from Sunday, it snowed ALL DAY! But it is all but gone and they say next week we will be in the 60’s. Can we dare hope that spring is finally arriving?

    I’m very impressed Sid, your poses are awesome! On the downside is falling for that old baby carrot trick. You know better than that! Glad your dad is feeling better and enjoy many great walks!

    Love, Gampy

    Handsome Sid, you are truly living up to your handsome moniker. You are so good looking! But, yes, double check on the BC before leaving the house.
