San Franciscans have a thing for outsize dogs. We have our fair share of lap dogs, too, but considering the preciousness of real estate here, our dedication to large pets is impressive. Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Golden Retrievers--that's who you see tethered to our parking meters. And we want one. But then we think, could such a large beast be happy in our small apartment? How do our neighbors do it? That's the question of the month...because it's pet time here at SF. All month we'll be blogging resources and ideas for living well with four-legged friends (both large and small), not to mention any house-trained birds, snakes, frogs, or fish. So if you've discovered a dog bed you're proud to keep in the living room, a cool gadget that gets all the pet hair off your sofa in one sweep, or some other treasure that makes life with a furry companion more companionable, be in touch! Also this week: the winner of the Greenest Thumb! contest (only a few more hours to cast your vote!).
