Dog of the Day: Bernese Mountain Dog Mix

Saw this pup today, trying so, so hard to say hi to every passer-by.

Dog of the Day: Bodhi the GLORIOUS German Shepherd Golden Retriever Mix

I went out to do a little shopping this evening, and I ran into a few pups. There was one who was adorable, and one who was noble, and one who really really wanted to say hi. But there was only one who was glorious, and that was Bodhi, the 4 year old German shepherd mix. (Probably with golden retriever, judging from the fluffy tocks!)

A great place to run across dogs: right outside a butcher’s shop/steakhouse.

Dog of the Day: Yorkshire Terrier Puppy

Autumn sent me this pup. I don’t know what her name is or how old she is but she’s AMAZING.

Someone got shorn, everywhere but the face. Funny effect.

Sunday Switchup Dessert Review: Philmore Creamery

I decided to try something from the Philmore Creamery today: a Cherry Crumble Pie with Gianduia Gelato.

Verdicts:

Pie: 3/5. It’s fine, but the nothing distinguished. The crush isn’t flaky, it’s just sort of there. The oat mixture on top is tasty but not particularly interesting from a texture point of view. The cherries are mostly whole, which makes them awkward and not entirely pleasant  to chew on. The filling is a little sweeter than I like but still well within my comfort zone.

Ice cream: 3/5. Also fine. It’s a perfectly good chocolate ice cream, but there’s not a lot of hazelnut flavor that I could detect. And frankly, as a chocoholic, chocolate ice cream has never been in my top ten. However, it’s definitely very creamy and rich.

Dog of the Day: Boru the Basset Hound

I was out wandering this afternoon, after picking up my spanky new set of glasses, when I ran into this fine fellow. When I asked what his name was, Boru’s mom said, “His name is Boru,” and then the two of us chorused together, “As in Brian Boru.” She was impressed. I guess not a whole lot of Americans have heard of Brian Boru.

Boru is four years old, and eternally happy, saggy-sadface or not.

San Francisco isn’t really keeping up its street cleaning, in the current ‘total shut-down’ environment. I can understand why, but yech.

Dog of the Day: Taco the Golden Retriever Puppy

Believe it or not, this Taco (6 months old) is not the first Taco that we’ve had on here. Definitely the youngest and shiniest, though.

This shade is called ‘English cream’. Pretty!

This was back in the pre-COVID days, when everyone could swarm around every cute puppy that happened by.

Dog of the Day: American Pit Bull Terrier Puppy

I may have dogsat this pup, but I can’t remember for the life of me it. Maybe I just ran into him at a party.
