Memorial Day in the park
A girl and her dog. Golden Gate Park.
A boy and his dog. Well, hers, technically. But still. Us boys.
Walking with Heather and the pups through Golden Gate park on a sunny day is like being a traveling petting zoo. People flock to them, all smiles. We wandered a bit too close to the kids area and were besieged by tiny humans, all wanting to touch the tiny dogs. One father even held his pristine one year-old out to Chieka. I could have stopped her from tonguing the child, but I didn’t. As we walked away, I heard the dad say to the whimpering child: “We won’t tell mommy about this.”
