Buster: We’re in San Francisco!
Ty: Home of cable cars, the Golden Gate Bridge, and a very impressive Chinatown – which, being of Chinese decent myself, I found quite compelling.
Buster: You sniffed every pole, trash can, and door step looking for food someone dropped on the sidewalk!
Ty: Like I said … I found it compelling.
Buster: It’s also home to the San Francisco Giants baseball team – the first team to hold a “Bark in the Park” event and invite dogs to come to see a game.
Ty: I wonder if I was REALLY good if I’d get to have one of those ball park hot dogs I dream about.
Buster: Do you every think of anything besides your stomach?
Buster: Well, people must have realized how much dogs love baseball, because many teams are now scheduling pet friendly games each season.
Ty: Or Cracker Jacks … they’re really good, too. And you get prizes in the boxes to boot.
Buster: Here’s the schedule of the games you can take your dog to for the rest of the summer.
Ty: And don’t forget the snacks!
