We woke up early this morning planning on taking the pups to Foster Dog Beach. However, after finding it blocked due to an event along the lake shore bike path, we headed south to Montrose beach. We live basically in the middle of both beaches and have always chosen Foster beach over Montrose, hearing crazy stories from friends and people we’ve randomly met. Foster is smaller and seemingly lesser known than Montrose, but Montrose has been ranked in the top 10 for dog beaches in the US by “Fido” magazine.
Montrose was actually fantastic. The beach was huge and the beautiful early morning brought a large amount of dogs running from one side to the other. We headed over to the less populated side to acclimate the pups to the craziness of the party. Both Link and Eve did fantastically. While Paul was throwing the ball to Link, Eve followed at my heels and playfully met other dogs with no signs of aggression. Both of the pups loved the water and meeting new aquintences. Jake, the Jack Russell/Husky mix we met yesterday walking was also at the beach today. All in all, today was a great morning at the beach. Tomorrow we will head there again for a Chicago dog festival.
