Augustus

Ocean Beach
Saturday morning

***

I love this city. I'll admit it: it's a bit weird. I can't figure out if it's a hot city or a cold city, a dry city or a wet city. That's alright though. This place has some of the best parks for dogs in the world. I can go to Stern Grove, Ocean Beach, or Fort Funston, and they're all only 5 minutes from my house. If you haven't, you should really check out Fort Funston...it's like doggy Disneyland. My parents sometimes take me to the park for too long, forgetting that I'm not a high energy lab, but a low-key bulldog. I can go for 45 minutes, tops. Well, when this one female dog is there I can go for a little longer, but usually it's only 45 minutes. When they push it, I need to sleep the rest of the day. Thankfully they give me delicious meals. There's this awesome store nearby called Sunset Pet Supply. Everyone and everything there is awesome. I just walk in the door and I get showered with treats. I'm telling you: it's great to be a dog in San Francisco!

Not many people know this, but there are more of us dogs in San Francisco than there are kids. So guess what: we're just as much a part of this city as anyone else is. So get to know your nearest dog better, even if it's your own dog. Take us out to explore the fun streets and parks and festivals. We like exploring just as much as you do.

See you at Fort Funston soon!

Now THAT is a loved dog. He might be a dog but his parents are looking at him like a beloved child. Pets are awesome! I love the photo with his feet buried in the sand dune as he's trying to climb up it. Looked quite cute and comical.
