Erin and I are self-declared dog lovers. Neither of us have kids yet, so, naturally, we treat our pets like our children. But what happens when you work an extra-long day, come home and it’s dark and freezing, and you have to choose between hitting the gym or playing fetch with Fido? You hope to goodness you live in San Francisco. Not only is it not snowy there like it is here in the Midwest (the photo at right is actually one of my dog a couple years ago when she was just a wee one, bounding through the snow, tongue happily out), but they also have a health club for both you and your dog so that you both get exercise! Brilliant!
