Dogs we love. Today is Memorial Day and we went to visit the San Francisco Presidio and it's National Cemetery. Spend five minutes there and your heart will beat a patriotic rhythm. Taking our dog with us, we walked one of the paths down to Fort Point, then made our way to Crissy Field. Along the way we were stopped several times by people curious about Cleo, her breed, size, sex and demeanor. I think one nice lady will be visiting the SF/SPCA later this week, because of our chat.
It was wonderful to see tourists and families enjoying the beautiful scenery. Many had their dogs with them while they walked or barbecued. Cleo looked longingly at both the hot dogs and wiener dogs (doxies)!
Thank you to all the people we saw picking up their dog poop. That grass was wet so we can imagine it wasn't easy. Shoot, Cleo had so much fun we picked up after her three (count 'em 3) times. That last one I think I left a bit of a divot, trying to get it all.
"Grazie" to the lovely older Italian couple whose Golden Gate Bridge snapshot includes Cleo's big nose, and who said "buon giorno" to Cleo in reaction.
Thank you to my friends who went on the walk with us & thought to buy Cleo an all natural dog cookie in the Warming Hut, just because they looked good & because they love Cleo.
With summer officially here, we hope to see more of all of you online and in San Francisco. It is a great destination city and filled with dog lovers.
