Gatsby had a North Park urban adventure. He makes people smile & he enjoys outings. I took him into Torque Moto Cafe, a dog friendly coffee house, where he walked in, stood on his hind legs and put his front paws on the counter like Scooby Doo pretending to be a human.
Then we went to Verbatim Books, also dog-friendly, where I found a copy of the WHEN HARRY MET SALLY screenplay. He did not enjoy the bookstore so much bc the aisles were narrow. Having been welcomed into those two places, he then tried to go into every store, even an optometrist office.
On the way back to the car, a man who appeared to be strung out on something approached from across the busy street and blocked the sidewalk. "Can I ask you a question?" I nervously made a noise bc what woman enjoys being approached like that? He said, "Is that a Goldendoodle?" I said yes and he said only, "Beautiful dog."
