Fish - A Dog Friendly Restaurant

With miles and miles of waterfront and some of the best restaurants in the world, the San Francisco Bay offers the very best in dining-by-the-sea, unless you want to take your dog with you for lunch, then where do you go? I recommend the most fabulous indoor/ outdoor restaurant called Fish located dockside in Sausalito with large picnic tables, fresh ocean breezes and views of the bay from the boat harbor, not to mention excellent seafood and friendly waiters who will happily sidestep your dogs while serving very fresh fare from the sea and a great selection of beer and wine. All dogs are welcome in the picnic area just like the other day after the dog show when we shared a fabulous lunch with our 5 well-behaved  Newfoundlands who relaxed with us by the picnic tables and enjoyed a nice sunny afternoon. It's always fun when the dogs can come along.

Karazan Phoebe Buffay

Phoebe did very well for her first show this weekend in San Rafael, the Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club show.  Very sweet and well-behaved, she was somewhat timid on Saturday taking in all of the new sights and smells of the dog show with all of the new demands and having to stand for a strange judge who evaluated her from head to toe. With lots of positive reinforcement and treats, she learned well and was happier on Sunday winning Reserve Winner's Bitch. We look forward to our next show in Roseville on October 4th and 5th. She enjoyed the company of her friends Sophie, Bella, Satchel, Bruin, and Paris and she hopes they will all be there at the next show!!
