You think you're upset over how Mitt Romney's been smack-talking about the poor. Dog lovers across the Bay Area are even more disturbed by the way he treats pups.

Because this is the Bay Area, where people like dogs more than kids, a group of canines and their owners are planning to gather at the dog sanctuary of Point Isabel this weekend to protest Romney's treatment of his Irish Settler, Seamus. As Obama noted this election season, the adorable family pup rode in a carrier which was strapped on top of the Romney's Chevrolet during the family's 12-hour drive to Canada.

While the Romneys relaxed up front, Seamus was apparently stressed out by the family vacation, enough so that he got sick in his carrier. Romney defended his actions to a Boston Globe reporter, explaining that he had no clue it was illegal to tie your pup to the top of a car while driving on the highway.



Well, the Good Dog, Bad Romney folks are here to help educate the Republican presidential candidate and anyone else who believes strapping their dog on top of a moving car is a good idea.The crew plans to walk the paths at the Richmond-based park on Saturday morning, passing out information about dog safety, and T-shirts, of course.

But more importantly, they'll be out there reminding folks to bark for Barack come Election Day.

Woof.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
