well, you all know that mom and dad missed their flight on Sunday and that they could not get any other til Tuesday.
We drove back home, picked up Muf and Fritz, spent our day at the Point Isabel and had a great time.
Next day we went to the cafe first to pick up the mandatory treats. Fritz and Muf really liked the idea :o) We got two treats each this time! Nice nice.. We had to wait outside, though.
Then later we met up with a friend for a walk at the Fort Funston. That was very nice. Jolanda was so excited! She needed to let everyone know that we were there.......... *yackyackyack*. I had a good time with my ball and the ocean :o) Fritz, Muf and Jolanda ran and played in the water.
The walk was very nice.
Once we were done we drove back home to get dad's suitcase packed. That was fast, because he only packed a few things. Our evening was very nice. Dad cuddled me a lot, which is always good, we went on a night walk and had a very yummy dinner.
Next day we made it to the airport in time. We better.. Dad ended up flying by himself, because he was invited from a university for a talk and a colloquium. No idea what that is, but sounds interesting. Dad thinks it is :o)
Dad took off, which was very sad, and we headed over to the Crissy Field!
We spent three hours there! That was amazing. Mom really likes going places with us, because we behave and listen well. As a bonus we get to be off leash, pretty much all the time. Well, except in the city - 4 dogs off leash is not so smart.
After the beach we had to do a quick stop so Fritz could get a new collar. They had non when we picked them up from the boarding place on Sunday.. mh.
Fritz picked a very pretty one and mom got a discount, because Fritz is so cute........ yeah. How about us?? Lucky guy ;o)
Later that day, mom and Fritz drove into the city to see the menorah and the christmas tree on Union Square. It was beautiful they said! Fritz had never been in the "big city" with all these people and music and lights and the busy. But he liked it, he said. Lots of people said hi to him :o) He likes children especially. We met a little girl in a wheelchair and Fritz poked his nose into her tummy, which made her laugh and giggle really loud. Her mom was really happy about this. Then Fritz put his big old head into her lap, so she could cuddle him better. She held on to his head and hugged him a lot. Her mom said that we made the child's year..... wow. Good boy Fritz. Can you imagine? A 7 year old child with MS? How awful. She is special girl..
Mom and Fritz also went to Macy's to get something. Fritz had big, big eyes when he saw all the lights and the shelves. Mom said he looked like a little child in awwww..... We met another dog there, who he said hi to, we met nice staff, who had beef jerky treats! Yum.. I wish I were there..
Then they went to check out the SPCA Macy's window and went to the Yerba Buena park so Fritz could run around a little.
Fritz said he had a fabulous time :o) Good for him.
Our days were wonderful so far - lots of beach, city and Marina.
Yesterday we went to the shelter, so mom could work with a dog, with whom not many people like to work. She is too much, too mouthy and too assertive.. She is smart, which makes it interesting at least. But well, every dog deserves a chance, right? One day at a time.. She learns, though.
After the shelter we went on a night walk with mom, which was so nice.
We clung to mom's legs, because she was sad. Seeing the dogs at the shelter makes her sad often time. Especially the ones no one wants. The ones like the girl she worked with that day. Being at the shelter for a long time is not a good situation. At least they are not being euthanized.. Thanks dog. On the other hand it makes mom happy to see how many dogs go back home or find a new home.
Also mom was sad, because dad isn't here and we have not lit one Hanukkah candle yet. Not one! Hanukkah without dad does not feel right.
We tried to cheer mom up, which worked :o) Back home then, really late, mom built our own menorah (our old one broke) and lit the candles!! We all sat in front of it and gazed into the flames. They looked very pretty.
It felt nice and warm. Mom did some praying and wishing and blessing and then we took the menorah and moved over to our beds. We had the lights on all night! It was beautiful. Mom could not sleep. Many things went through her head. Once the candles were out, mom fell asleep.
Dad is coming back tomorrow morning. We are all very happy about that :o) Can't wait. We will all go to pick him up! All four of us and mom.
I collected a few pictures from the week for you:
Hope you like them.
Happy woofs and happy Hanukkah from all of us..

Happy Hanukkah to you!
Lighting the Candles is cleansing... and healing... they wrap us in their light and warmth.HUGSSSSSSS
So beautiful that the Little One could enjoy Fritz... there is no fairness that she suffers.. or that the animals just get left in the shelters... but sometimes... something happens to give a little balance.. like Fritz giving his love to the girl.. like you Mum giving her time to the dog.
Love and HUGS... and loved the photos.
