Okay, confession: We don’t run this site because we love public transit and how it’s the place so many of our lives intersect, how it’s a great San Francisco shared experience, or sometimes, how it’s just plain funny AF. No, we started Muni Diaries because we love dogs. Plain and simple. We love dogs.
Now that that’s established, let’s take a look at some of the visiting dogs who are here for Super Bowl security. We’ll start with Gera, a beautiful TSA K9 seen above on a BART platform. Good girl, Gera!
Going aaaaaaaaallllll the way back to 2015 and inspiring cries of “I have never!” these pups riding the bus on Mission Street DGAF.

Hello, Mr. Chunky Monkey on the bus. Dogs on Muni always brings a smile to my face (yes muzzles blahblah fleas blahblah I know). I can’t help myself. Here are three adorable animal friends riding the bus around town. Not pictured: me making ridiculous baby-talk cooing noises at these poor unsuspecting pets.

Or so says our friend Ronn Vigh: “Didn’t realize Muni changed their signs to “these seats must be vacated for seniors, disabled & dogs.” Um, DUH, Ronn!
Guide human for blind dogs? Were-Dalmation? Or just Jim, stepping out at night like only Jim knows how to do?
In any case, this comes to you via illusionofhope. You’re welcome.
This moment of complete and utter cuteness was brought to you by @missnorasf, who asks, reasonably: “Can everyone on my commute be replaced with dogs and also can I be a dog?”
Hmm…I might skip the sniffing-butts part, but having at least half of my commute be replaced by puppies watching Animal Planet sounds like a pretty great idea to me.
