Yummy for my tummy

We passed by Barry for Pets when Gladys decided that Hobie needed a treat.

We got him a hide bone, and after some initial hesitation, he seemed quite satisfied with it.

Pine Lake

We took Hobie to Pine Lake last weekend. It's right off Sloat, and it's surprisingly quiet. There were a lot of dogs there, despite the dog run being under renovation.

The dog area seems huge, and it's one of the biggest dog parks I've seen in San Francisco. Dogster has directions and the address.

It sprinkled a little bit, so we had to deal with a muddy, but happy, dog.

There are a few short trails behind Stern Grove, and Hobie had a great time running around there. For the humans, though, the walk around the actual lake was nicer.

Needless to say, the fire alarm testing disturbs him:

Smelling new things at Mori Point

| | Comments (1)

This weekend we went to Pacifica. We started at the pier, and walked along the golf course until we got to Mori Point.

There were a lot of dogs along the golf course, almost all of them on leash. Of course, there were a lot of new smells also, and sometimes Hobie just really really wants to smell something.


Hobie is now almost 30 pounds, and he can muster quite a bit of strength considering his size. If he wants to smell something, and he can't reach, he'll use all his power and try to claw in order to get closer to whatever he wants to smell.

It was a nice, cool, and foggy day. The surf was pretty high, and there were only a few surfers along the beach.


There were not a lot of people hiking here, and Hobie was the only dog we saw. There were plenty of dogs along the beach, but none up on the trails themselves.

Here we are starting to climb up to the highest point during the hike. It was pretty foggy, so we couldn't see too far when we got to the top, but Hobie seemed quite happy that it wasn't too hot.

Meeting cows on the Bolinas Ridge Trail

We went to the Bolinas Ridge Trail. It's right outside Point Reyes, and one of the few dog-friendly trails up there.

Right on the trail head there was a lot of cows. Hobie has not really been close to cows before, and he wasn't quite sure what to think of them.

Here we're trying to turn around to get Hobie closer to the cows, but Hobie will have none of that nonsense.

Once we got past the cows it was a nice hike. The ground was still a little wet, but we walked for about 90 minutes along the trail before we stopped for food.

There was a great view from the top, and it seems that even Hobie enjoyed it. We didn't even have to bribe him with treats to get him to sit still for the picture.

We let Hobie off leash for a little bit, and he was trotting along very happily.

Of course, on our way back, we had to walk by the cows again. Wherever there are cows, there are cow pies. And wherever Hobie is, it's sometimes hard to walk in a straight line. I was trying to navigate through the maze of puddles, pies and cows, but Hobie still managed to get two of his paws planted solidly on top of a fresh pie.

Fortunately, it didn't really stick, and we cleaned him up with paper towels before we drove home to give him a bath.
