Last July my husband Doug, and I flew to San Francisco to spend a week or so with our son Brett, and his big fluffy Bernedoodle Riv. We don't have grandchildren yet so for now Riv is our granddog. He is a well-behaved and charming eighty-five-pound dog, and he is welcomed in many places in California. Brett takes Riv out in the city all the time.
When visiting San Francisco we often also spend a few days in Napa Valley. One night at Angele Restaurant in the historic Napa Mill area, about twenty people, all Angele patrons, stopped at our table to ask what kind of dog we had with us, what was his name? The friendly staff would bring dog treats for Riv. I was quite surprised by all the attention Riv was attracting. I thought, "Wow, Riv is pretty special. Maybe I should write a book about him!" So in August I wrote this book. I had plenty of photos to use as inspiration.
Brett trained Riv to behave at all times. Therefore, Riv is welcomed inside businesses, restaurants, aboard some ferry boats, and in the Flagship Gym. Some children and even some adults could learn lessons from Riv's good behavior! I have to credit Brett with his fantastic dog-training skills.
San Francisco is a beautiful city, and Brett ensures Riv experiences many of the beautiful sites in and around the Bay Area. This book will show you places you can take your dog to enjoy the outdoors, to have some fun, and maybe make some new dog-loving friends.
