I've been trying to gather up the energy to write a blog post, and finally have some energy now that its 20 degrees cooler here. Oh gosh, we hit a record high in the city at 98 degrees on tuesday, and today, it was in the nice low 70s. :) Anywhoo, I wanted to recap Bailey's adventure (and mine) that we had this weekend, and our favorite place, Crissy Beach. It's right below the infamous Golden Gate Bridge. It's a beautiful stretch of beach along the northern side of San Francisco, nestled between the Marina district, the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge, and of course Crissy Field (which apparently used to be used to be a rich salt marsh and was used as a landing spot for planes from early explorers as well as a military airfield as storied here). Anywhoo, Bailey and I were accompanied by some of my fabulous coworkers, their furkids and regular kids. haha. We had a blast, having a picnic at a picnic table off the beach, then trekked over to the beach and waded in the water, ran away from waves, made sand castles with the kiddos, and enjoyed the what became sunny afternoon on the beach. Nothing could be better. Bailey cooperated and brought the ball back each time I or anyone else threw it out. He even goes swimming on command. I say "go swimming" .. and he literally walks and wades into the water. We also had three australian shepherds and one papillon join us, and they were all water dogs too! I finally got to meet Tanner - one of my coworkers aussies which I haven't met in the 2 years i have known his mom, but im glad we got a chance to meet!
Bailey also wrestled with a 10 month old Irish Wolfhound pup named Finley on the beach. Her owner was a bit...... well...... of a hypocrite (he told my coworker that her dog was "attacking" his dog, but well, see the video of his pup below dragging bailey by the neck) but anyways, bailey had fun wrestling with the dog and he welcomes good hard wrestling fun.
It was a blast! Bailey came home as tired as ive probably ever seen him! We gave him a bath and practically called it a day. We spent I think.. a total of 8 hours there. Got there at 9:30am to secure the spot, and we did not get back home until around 4pm. CRAZY!. Anywhoo, enjoy the videos and pictures!
