Last August, my instagram was flooded with pictures of our local canine pals living it up at a Giants game and I was so bummed I missed it! Luckily I discovered that this is an annual event, and the Giants are not the only MLB team opening their gates to their furry fans. This year I was prepared and pounced on the tickets once they went on sell. Your tickets get you and your dog a seat to enjoy the game. You also have the option of arriving early and participating in a costume contest and pre-game parade around the field. Umm… yes, please!
Matt and I are pretty competitive, so we were in it to win it when it came to the costume contest. I enlisted the help of my friend, Tara, who happens to be a rockstar groomer working out of A Dog’s Life in Palo Alto. Being a die-hard Giants fan, she knew just what to do. How cute is that video she sent me?!
We ended up missing the pre game events due to a downed power line on the freeway, but Thumper quickly recovered from his despair. He was in heaven receiving all of the attention from his fellow Buster Posey fans, and even made his debut on the jumbotron.
Titan wasn’t as into the game as Thumper. In fact, he spent most of the game sunbathing (shocking, I know).
Let’s not forget the importance of napping. Which of course is always better when done on Mom’s lap.
T&t were excited to meet up with their good friend Cali at the game.
The San Francisco SPCA sponsor this yearly event and they do an awesome job! For pooches that got a little overstimulated or just needed a potty break, there was an easy system for exiting and reentering the stadium. Complimentary water and bowls were supplied throughout the game to make sure all four-legged friends stayed comfortable and happy. Thumper, Titan, and Cali give a big woof of appreciation to all of the helpful volunteers for making this an amazing day!
