The Dog Poll
We love anytime we get to let our dog obsession go wild, and this year, our 2012 Dog Poll was a heated, tooth-and-nail battle till the end. Out of 50 insanely adorable finalists ranging from a great dane to a pair of wrinkly bulldogs to a tiny chihuahua mix with a hefty underbite, we narrowed it down to seven. After almost 5,000 votes, you've crowned the champion of this year's batch. Who was it, you ask?
Every day, I look forward to my morning walk through Duboce Park on the way to the N train. The dog scene there is a constantly evolving comedy (and sometimes drama) of cliques, patrol groups, and ball-chasing competitions. One thing that's unwavering, however, is the adoration owners have for their pets. Everyone thinks that their dog - purebred or mutt - is the cutest.
