Aby-a-Day – November 25: On the fence (Hipstamatic Monday)

Jacoby never fails to make me laugh.

Here’s some more photos from when he tried to climb that fence on our walk.

He stood up and looked through the mesh at the park and the traffic beyond it for quite a while.

Then he decided it was time to climb.

Alley-oop!

You see? I wasn’t kidding when I said he’d have gone over if I wasn’t on the other end of his leash!

Aby-a-Day – November 23: “Over” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Over.”

A couple of weeks ago, Jacoby and I went for a little walk out to Rolling Bridge Park and on the way home we walked along Foundry Street.

There’s a chain link fence there at the back of a little park.

For some reason, Jake decided he felt like climbing!

I bet dog people never have this problem when they go out for walkies!

He totally would have gone up and over, too, if I hadn’t stopped him!

Aby-a-Day – June 13: I’m walkin’ here!

Turns out, Angel is pretty good at walking on a leash. Sure, Jacoby gets all the attention, but Angel can hold her own.

She decided all on her own to jump out of the stroller and walk alongside it.

Jake was already walking up ahead with me, and I think it was a case of “Aby see, Aby do.”

Cats do learn by observation and imitation, after all.

I was very impressed – and proud!

She trotted along like a real pro, which is really awesome considering she hasn’t been outside since (I think) the summer before last.

I wonder if walking on a leash is an inherited trait?

It seems to be in Angel’s bloodlines!

Aby-a-Day – May 30: Into the sunset

On Monday, Jacoby, my husband, and I took a little walk to the Post Office and South Station.

This is one of Jake’s favourite places to walk. And who can blame him?

He gets to a point on the way home where he decides he wants to walk, and then he hops out.

He just trots along the seawall, happy as can be…

While we were walking, I made a little video; I know, I forgot to turn my iPhone sideways. Sorry about that. But you can see how he walks along until he gets tired and decides he wants to get back into his stroller!

What’s interesting is that Gun-Hee also loved to walk along this same stretch of the Harborwalk. This video is from 2007, and it’s November, not May, but you can see how similar they are.

Aby-a-Day – May 28: On the waterfront (Hipstamatic Monday)

Jacoby really loves walking along Fort Point Channel.

I think he recognises the area, and he knows we’re close to home there. He can walk all the way to our building once we get past Binford Park.

hipstajakeIMG_7396

You would think he’d prefer to walk on the side of the path furthest from the channel, but this isn’t the case at all.

hipstajakeIMG_7395

I think he likes to look at the water.

hipstajakeIMG_7393

I can’t argue with him; the channel is a lot more exciting than Gillette’s parking lot!

Aby-a-Day – May 19: No better place

I don’t think we’re ever happier than when we’re walking home along the Channel.

I think Jacoby enjoys it as much as I do.

It may be an industrial area, next to a major train station and not far from an international airport, but it’s also just beautiful, especially at dusk.

We can see the Prudential Building on our way home, too.

“Mo-o-om! Are you coming, or what!?”
