Ishy made some friends

Since I spent 5 days in Colorado last week, and am going to spend next weekend packbacking with the ICO kids, I called off ICO rafting this weekend so that I could spend some quality time with Ishy. I've been hitting the gym pretty hard of late, which means that he doesn't get to spend nearly as much time with me (or anyone else) as I would like. It seems that there is a Doggie Day Care place that will open up near my house soon, and I think that I will enroll him when it does.

But back to this weekend...My favorite place to take Ishy these days is definetly Fort Funston. It's huge and off leash. And while the hike we took in Palo Alto let him stretch his legs and run around a little more, I was constantly paranoid I would get a ticket for not having him on his leash. And there were no other dogs to socialize with.

Well we got up early today. I suppose 7:00 a.m. isn't really early when you get up at exactly that time every day, and the weekend just continues the trend. A with this early start we made it to the beach just before 10. Which as it happens is when a very friendly group of San Franciscans always come to walk their dogs. Ishy was quickly assimilated into the pack (it's hard not to when your the meat in a three dog humping sandwich), and I got a chance to meet some friendly owners.

Based on how tired he was when we got back, I'ld have to say that he had a good time.
