Peter Pan and the Girl in a Flamenco Dress at Farley’s Annual Pet Fest

Stanford met a very pretty young lady over the weekend.  She was wearing a lovely red Flamenco dress with matching lovely red earrings and red shoes. And what was Stanford wearing? A charming Peter Pan outfit with a matching dagger!

Farley's Pet Fest

They met while waiting to have their photographs taken at Farley’s 19th Annual Pet Fest.

It was a beautiful sunny Saturday in Potrero Hill.  The line was long for Christopher Irion’s famous Photo Booth but it was full of cheerful faces of dogs and kids alike dressed up for the occasion.  There was King Arthur.  There were ballerinas and cowboys.  There was a lot of bumblebees and ladybugs wagging their tails. There was even a green iguana with pink and white bunny ears, not a pooch dressed as an iguana but a real live iguana! It’s Farley’s Annual Pet Fest after all.


Which Broom?

Which Broom?

Which broom?

I was a bit disappointed to see that Cole Fox in downtown San Francisco doesn’t carry the good ol’ walis tambo I grew up with back in the Philippines.

Nonetheless, their window display is super cool!  So defying gravity.

Walis tambo is a popular Philippine soft broom made from dried stalks of grass locally known as tambo.
