As For Today

Friday, February 7, 2014

As for today, I might have to keep this kind of short because I have a very important meeting this morning. Very very important. Technically it's Harlow's very important meeting, but because I'm a stage dog mom I'm tagging along. Harlow is going to review an "agility class" at Chicago's new Zoom Room and he is so excited about it. He's taking his role as a dog blogger very seriously and spent all night last evening warming up and doing stretches. 

So because I'm a little short on time, I'm just going to share a few of my favorite photos from the week. Like this one, this image pretty much sums Harlow up. 


He is loyal to a fault. And by loyal sometimes I mean clingy as hell. Take this for example, when I'm working in the bedroom and he decides he wants to eat lunch he'll actually take mouthfuls of food and bring it into the room and lay on the floor next to me so he can chew his food by my side. And then he'll walk back into the kitchen and do the exact same thing again and again. Like I said, he's a clinger. And I love him so much for it.

I've lived across the street from this building for almost two years now and never realized how awesome it really is until yesterday. How weird is that?


Harlow walked me through Lincoln Park yesterday. It was as dreary as it looks.


Someday I hope to stop posting so many winter photos. But that day won't come anytime soon, another snow storm is rolling in tomorrow. This has been a winter like I've never experienced before. And yet oddly enough there's a part of me that likes it because it makes me feel like a hard ass. Chicagoans are really tough people I've realized, this city isn't for the weak.



Happy weekend, everyone! Wish me luck on Harlow's agility class, I have a feeling he is going to embarrass both of us and we'll never be asked back again.

  1. My sisters dog does the same exact thing, taking mouthfuls of food to eat wherever my sister is. She's extremely clingy to the point of tears. Meanwhile, my dog cares very little about my whereabouts unless it's mealtime.

    1. That's comforting for me to know my dog isn't the only overly attached pup out there!

  3. Good luck, Harlow! Millie (my goldendoodle) can't wait to hear about his latest adventure. She may or may not have a crush on him (watch out though, she is a big time flirt).

  4. You DEFINITELY have to be a hard ass to survive the winter you guys I've had. It's been CRAZY up there! Of course, luckily (unluckily??) for you, it doesnt seem to bother Harlow any, and he delights in walks through that mess. Mine loves the cold too (of course here cold is 30s and NO snow) but I find it torturous those walks when I actually have to like, put on GLOVES? a hat? WHAT? :)

  5. My dog is a stage 4 clinger too. If she could, I'm sure she'd crawl in to my skin.

    Midwesterners are a strange, tough breed. It's going to be 20 next week in MSP. I think I might break out my flip flops.

  6. My dog is super clingy like Harlow! I said that his name should have been Shadow because he seriously won't leave my side. I can't even go to the bathroom by myself and I always feel bad when he's sound asleep if I have to get up and move to do something because I know he is going to wake up and follow me even though I'll be right back. Have a great weekend!

  7. We finally got snow in the Northwest and I don't know what to do with myself. No dog or babies to film or photograph out in it. Good luck, Harlow!

  9. That's so sweet that he wants to eat lunch with you like that, haha. Dogs really are the best. Good luck with the snowstorm, yikes!

  10. My dog does the same thing. I keep her food bowls upstairs in the bedroom and she'll even grab a mouthful of food and walk down the stairs just to eat it by my side. Oh and carpet, don't get me started! Every dog I've ever owned has to eat their food on any piece of carpet in the house. They're strange little creatures I tell ya!

  11. My pup does the same thing! She grabs her food, brings it to wherever I am at & lays down to eat next to me. Cutest thing. And I am so sick of this winter thing. I've lived in Illinois my entire life & I've never had such a miserable winter. Lots of snow, sure. But not lots of snow followed immediately by -4000 degree days. It's miserable!

  12. at least your winter looks pretty. but yeah im over winter. and why are dogs so clingy, im just going to the bathroom, chill out!

  13. My dog does the same thing, even if I'm in the same room and he just can't see me, he'll bring over mouth fulls of food. But he's a chihuahua so his mouth fulls aren't nearly as big, he also has to make frequent trips...

    Your pictures are gorgeous!

  14. My dog is a Stage 5 Clinger as well and I kinda love it. Is that weird? She doesn't do the "bring food to my room" thing, but she seriously doesn't leave my side any time I'm home. When I leave, she literally BEGS to go with me. Even if it's a quick trip to Taco Bell. She sits quietly in the passenger seat just staring at me. It's kind of creepy.

    Why do we love our dogs SO MUCH!?

  17. You made gray sky and white ground in February look pretty. Congrats to you as that is a tall order to fill. Will you and Harlow both be rich and famous soon? How will Chris handle all of that fame surrounding him?

  21. I'm with Amanda on this one! Harlow is such a start-- you should really consider changing the name of this blog! :) Oh and you are welcome to come and stay here with me in Florida.. the cold weather has pretty much gone away and it's beautiful. I'll give you the grand tour and Harlow can play on the beaches!
