Playground rules do not apply... if you're the only ones around. Today, Stella and I had a brisk walk along Lake Michigan again. She of course was more interested in finding a stick to chew on, but her attention switched to me when I brought her to the playground. She acted like a little school girl. Wanting to chase, seek and find. We did all three. Afternoon walks are the best. The parks tend to be quieter and there is more freedom. Being able to play in a park with no other dogs or children is rare in the city, but when you do have those moments they make for a great afternoon. Stella may have won at hide-n-seek, but I won a fun afternoon with Stella Bella.
