Fort Funston is one of the most popular off leash dog parks in the Bay Area. It was my first time there and I couldn't believe the sheer number of dogs and their owners that packed the trail heading towards the beach. (dog traffic, literally!). I had so much fun taking all this experience in and learning about different breeds from my friend Erika who was dog sitting Lucy this past weekend. I did recall a few of them from books I've read when I was a child living in Manila. I was delighted when I was able to identify some of them correctly. I even got to play ball with Lucy at the beach. Although my throwing skills were rudimentary, she chased the ball with such vigor and brought it back sometimes with a bit of prodding. I must say it has been a long time since I had the chance to play with a dog. I really enjoyed it!
