Dog Stands Guard Atop RV

Posted By on Fri, Aug 26, 2011 at 3:45 PM

One can wander about San Francisco uttering "you don't see that every day" -- every day. And yet, as your humble narrator pedaled past the ballpark and into the aptly named dogpatch he witnessed the scene below:

Here boy! - JOE ESKENAZI
  • Joe Eskenazi
  • Here boy!

Yes, it's a dog sitting atop a surfboard, with both atop a camper that has seen better days.

Nice work if you can get it - JOE ESKENAZI
  • Joe Eskenazi
  • Nice work if you can get it

And, yes, it would seem the dog is guarding the vast assemblage of worldly possessions stacked on and about the RV. And, no, the camper was not moving. We'd have asked further, but the pooch was doing his job well. He didn't bark but, rather, gave us the look. It was a look that said "why don't you keep pedaling and get to where you're supposed to be while I stay here?"

So we did.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
