Or $189? I couldn’t tell if I was looking at the right sign.
“Pros: It’s a giant bear!”
“Cons: Will not fit in a normal size car”
Oh, and be sure to see if this critter will fit into your lifestyle.
This little critter startled me the other day, as it’s in the same bush where I saw a roof rat a few weeks back.
Dese boids generally have an all-carbs diet, but sometimes they need a little protein. This the last thing some spiders see:
Sort of looks like a bat to me.
But now it’s time for costumes. This little feller’s mantle is saying, “Hey ladies, look at me!”
(Hey, you know, speaking of scary, area Republican Ron Conway, through his interest in Pinterest, has made more money off of this shot than I have. Taken more than a decade ago with a $4500 camera and $4500 worth of glass it was. I’m in the wrong “business.”)
It’s all happening at our San Francisco Zoo
Now I’ve seen rats on grass and dirt and whatnot around town, and near garbage cans in the Financh and C-Town and the Fish Wharf, but I aint never seen a full-sized rat strutting about on pavement in a playground in Frisco. And yet, here s/he is:
I saw what I thought was a dead Norway rat up against a playground fence in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle the other day, but I don’t know much about varmints
All right, Get Out And Play, With Rats!
Hey look, it’s Erick “Rockclub” Brown and his goat named Deer, straight outta the Florida Panhandle.
All the deets:
And you know People Magazine? Well they have a Pets Section now. It’s called “PeoplePets.” Srsly:
All right, let’s bid adieu, as Erick and Deer strut through a four-on-four pickup blacktop game in our Panhandle:
Take a look at the ballers – click to expand if necessary. They all have the same HEY-BRO-GET-OFF-THE-COURT-WHOA-A-GOAT EXPRESSION, IMO.
Bon courage, Erick
Bon courage, Deer
READER NOTES: Are you aware of the Growing Urban Goat Movement? Check it:
Sarah Hawkins breeds and sells a specific variety of miniature goats. “The Nigerian Dwarf can be for pets and for milk,” says Hawkins, “and for eating weeds – they’ll eat yellow star thistle.” Hawkins owns Castle Rock Farm in Vacaville. Most of her customers live in San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland where it’s legal to keep goats in backyards.
And hey, you know who loves urban goats? SFGov, that’s who. Read up our even-toed ungulate laws here:
“Keeping two or less female goats on private property is legally allowed in San Francisco for the exclusive use of the owner’s family. Keeping more than two female goats or any number of male goats and other hoofed animals (e.g. Horse, mare, gelding, mule, burro, sheep, cow, etc) requires appropriate approval and stable permit according to the San Francisco Health Code. Goats can also be temporarily allowed on public projects for weed clearing and fire hazard abatement activities by special permit with the agency landowner.”
I’m not sure if this kind of thing was what the Founders of the Golden Gate Park PANHANDLE COMMUNITY BOARD had in mind:
Now let’s give this new bidness a name:
DnnrDog (Pronounced “dinner dog”)
And here’s your logo.
(My creative fee will be 2.5% of DinnrDog.)
