Yesterday we brought you the tale of a drunk driver who attempted to crash the carpool lane with his border collie as the requisite second passenger.

There's little that border collies can't do. But they cannot drive cars nor serve as your passengers in the carpool lane. They can, however, make better decisions than the aforementioned drunk driver.

A border collie on the move -- of a more sober, safe, and environmentally friendly variety -- was spotted in the Lower Haight recently. Here it is:


Granted, this dog looked like he'd be a lot more comfortable herding a bike than being ferried by one. He paced about nervously and seemed to be in an intense mood.

But, then, that's how border collies roll.

  • 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.'"
