Thanks to Josh, Ariel, TRP, and my sister (via email) for sharing travel tips for our upcoming--make that current--visit to Chicago and environs. Our first day is being spent in languor, keeping Grandma's dogs safe from crickets and cicadas.
Meet Maggie, a 14-year old dachshund who gets around pretty slowly and coughs like a tuberculosis patient. Apparently she used to be known as "Psycho Dog" or "Spawn of Satan." She has since calmed.
Sandy, Maggie's junior partner.
My wife reads Harry Potter and the Gripping Conclusion. Yes, that's Maggie underneath.
