And it was cold!

People week.

We heard rumors it could be cold in SF, even in July. So bundled in our windbreakers, fleece jackets, and layered clothes we braved the chilly winds off the bay (some days the highs were only in the hi-50s - winter by Florida standards). Not complaining, I loved every minute of the low temps.

This child and his dog seemed to share the sense of shivers we all felt that day. Creative approach to staying warm. Remember, we decided San Francisco's people are its most wonderful treasure.

5 Stars! Just to start.
Such a touching image of a boy keeping his dog warm on that chilly day.
I'm emotional I love it so much.
I wonder if there is a limit to how many comments you can get on AM3, you are sure to get many comments on this one.

The cooler weather must have been refreshing.

This spells L-O-V-E so loudly and clearly ........ a most touching photo, Glenn.
The contentment on the dog's face is precious, as is the boy's cheek pushed so close.
DEVOTION ... and 5 *****-s for sure!

oh, how cute and innocent. The two belong together, and swear eternal loyalty. A dog is the best friend you can have in life. He will never lie. Greetings Christel

This is adorable. It brings to mind a quote I once read: "The coldest winter I ever spent, was the summer I spent in San Francisco" --I think it was by Mark Twain.

Great capture.

Now, can you produce the model release? :)

@MontereyJohn: Nope. Bummer. They didn't speak English.

As I sit here in high humidity (but a little cooler) and sweating all day at the Fair (doing the hay show), the 50's sounds wonderful! This is such a touching image of a boy and his dog. Very nicely done, Glenn.

Thanks all for visiting today and liking this great little boy and his doggie. Incidental to this photo, he was looking down at his little brother, who was resting in a stroller just out of view of this photo. That little guy was all bundled up, too. I appreciate everybody's comments today and am sorry I ran out of time for visiting everybody's sites. We've got family in from out of town and we've been showing them Bradenton all day today.
