Come Take A Walk With Us

Maggie has trained me.  Here she is looking all bossy.  After morning drop off for school, she starts with her "huff-huff's".  Translated from dog to human means...take me out!  She has developed this routine for me {thank you Maggie}.  Take a ride with us for drop off {she is very insistent about this}, come home put on leash and sweater {still so cold here} then go for a walk.  When we get home from our walk, I have to give her fresh water otherwise she won't drink.  She just stands there staring at me with her piercing and oh so cute three dot expression.  I feed her next.  She has got my number because she won't eat unless I put a dollop of yogurt on her food.  
What a character.  
Thought you might enjoy a walk through our neighborhood.  There are some whopping large houses here.  Very beautiful homes and the pictures don't do them justice.


Rumor has it that this home has its own basketball court in the basement.


The older homes are more my thing.  I enjoy the character and details of the architecture.


Sweeping front lawns





New homes are just flying up around here.  They are tearing down cute homes and putting up mini- mansions.





Tootsie Roll house (yes the live here)


They have their own golf course that takes up the whole block.  It is so beautiful in there.  I love to walk by and look in!


More new homes.  Reminds me of the Hamptons


Thanks for taking a walk with me!  I wonder what else Maggie will be training me to do next?

Lovely! It reminds me of Chestnut Hill, MA near where my daughter went to college.
