I am living in San Francisco for the month (in a really great location) and this weekend my husband and Miko were here. I noticed that we could take Miko into a lot of food places without a bag (yeah for us) and not have anyone say anything!! I love it. What I didn't like was the tons of big dogs walking without leashes here. What is with that? Isn't that against the law? Miko did great -- walked a lot even with lots of people around, and even became used to the big dogs around but I was still annoyed. What's wrong with using the leash??
