For the cultured canine, may we suggest an evening of Shakespeare under the stars? Chicago Shakespeare Theater is again bringing free Shakespeare to city parks around Chicago. This year it's A Midsummer Night's Dream. See the list of performance locations and dates here.
Movies in the Parks are one of my favorite things about summer in Chicago. They're free, close to home (wherever you live!) and they go on all summer so it's never too late to catch one. Check out the complete list here, then get your blanket and picnic basket ready! You and your pup will love it. Did I mention there's usually free popcorn?! What's not to love?
Summer in Chicago! Hallelujah!
Get out and enjoy it with your pup. Today we start a little series of fun ideas for human-doggy outings that will get you and your four-legged buddy off the couch and out in the sun!
First up: Doga!
Ganesha yoga in Lakeview is having dog friendly yoga classes at Jonquil Park all summer, for the price of a regular class!

It's been a sad week here at Second City Pet Care. Losing dogs is the by far the hardest part of our job, but sadly it's a reality we have to deal with often. This week though, three of our beloved longtime clients passed away. They were all seniors who lived long, happy lives with humans who loved and cared for them dearly. We were privileged to get to spend time with them for many years. As humans who live with and love pets, we know that the time will come to say goodbye for all of our best furry friends. Bidding farewell to three old friends in the course of a week just made me stop and appreciate the time we have with the furry kids we call our own. If you are lucky enough to have your best furry friend with you right now, give 'em a little extra love today, an extra go-round the block, a snuggle on the couch. Their time is short, so make the moments count while you can.
A fond farewell to Clancy, Cuddles and Emma.
