Here is your Friday morning pick-me-up: Piglet, the pit bull pup that was found roaming Interstate 880 in Oakland the other evening is back at home, enjoying time with her family. 

The dog was picked up by a CHP officer who saw the lonely pup strolling the freeway near 66th Avenue in Oakland. She had a collar but no tags, and clearly looked like she was ready to go home. 

The CHP snapped some photos of the dog and put in on their social media accounts, hoping to find the owners. And it worked! Last night, dog and humans were reunited. 

Per the CHP:
A huge thank you to everyone who helped spread the word through social media. Piglet's owners saw her photo online and called us today, so your community support made this happen. Piglet was reunited this evening and was given the honorary title of Junior Officer for her bravery. She was even brave enough to go for one last ride in a patrol car before we headed off!

  • 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.'"
