Pooches: Pooches of San Francisco
We are always pointing out dogs we see on the street, especially bully breeds such as pit bulls. On our trip to San Francisco, we were basically paparazzi, running to take pictures of different dogs and their owners. For the picture above, we were running in full sprint down the street on the other side of the street just to get one decent picture. Our first pit bull sighting in San Francisco was on the MUNI heading to Haight-Ashbury. The dog was pulling her owner on a skateboard in the middle of the street and went right past us on the bus. Later while window shopping we ran into the dog and her owner at FTC Skateboarding.She loves skateboarding so much, that she even skates by herself in the store.Here are some photos of her skateboarding in the shop.The shop owner informed us that pit bulls are associated with street kids, especially in the Haight and Ashbury area.However, we did see quite a few non "street kids" with pit bulls.Though it seems dangerous to us, we saw several dogs being transported around in truck beds.We kept seeing this dog and his owner in different areas of San Francisco. They were begging for money and the dog would pose just like Ms. M when she's begging for food. We think this dog is Ms. M's doppelganger.
