I swear I’m not going all Anne Geddes on you (for the record I think that woman’s disturbed), but I can’t help it — I’m a sucker for dogs and cats. These cuties are certainly a reprieve after this week’s Muni news:

– Drivers overwhelm March Against Muni (SFWeekly)
– For a minute there it was close, but MTA Board takes more service cuts and fees for transfers off the table (StreetsBlog SF)
– SF Chronicle has an editorial about SPUR’s alternative budget proposal: “SPUR has made a good-faith effort to advance the discussion. There is plenty to hate in its package, but it is certainly preferable to an unthinking across-the-board service.”
– The Chronicle also reports that “public anger over Muni grows.” Uh, duh.
– Accidents: the 5-Fulton hits bicyclist and keeps going. M-Ocean View hits pedestrian Thursday (SFAppeal)
– State Legislature could restore millions in funding to MTA (StreetsBlog SF)

Tomorrow is the Muni Summit (reports the Examiner) at 8:15 a.m. at the Women’s Building in the Mission.

Enjoy your weekend!

    I am not an animal owner but these pics made me go AWWWWW! I’d rather ride with these wonderful passengers any day 🙂

  • Terry, I know how to pick ’em! 🙂 Sometimes I dream about working at Cute Overload.

    They are cute, but only one (per Muni regs) is muzzled. Are the others, even the puppies, ADA dogs? Even if your dog is the nicest, sweetest, never-bites beastie in town, someone steps on a paw, someone gets bitten, someone sues, our tax dollars get raided! Please folks! Muzzle and leash…

    I pray for the day when my dog will be able to ride MUNI without having a panic attack!Wish my dog was that laid back….

    Sorry to be a poor sport, but Excuse me I don’t sit in pet beds and I am not spending 2 bucks to do so either…get your dog out of my seat…

      Yeah, that’s my dog in “your” seat, and I guarantee you, he is more worthy of a seat than your grumpy butt. If I were ever to see a person who needed the seat, I would obligingly offer it to them, as well as my own. However, when bi-pedals with an inflated sense of entitlement give me a hard time about my dog, I am urged to remind them that my dog is likely a much more worthy recipient than their over-consuming, planet-wrecking, ingrate sack-of-flesh. Kindly fuck off.

      • Once I saw a book at the bookstore that was called “Cat Spelled Backwards Doesn’t Spell God.”

        I suppose the same could be said for “man.”

        😀
