San Francisco Giants fans and their pets celebrate the Dog Days of Summer at AT&T Park
This little fella sure doesn't look happy stuck in the middle of San Francisco's AT&T Park. Not sure why he has such a sour look on his face -- the bases are empty, the Giants have a pretty great pitching staff, and our four-legged friend is clearly one of the better-"dressed" pets at Saturday's "Dog Days of Summer" contest.
The pooch was part of the 13th annual event at the S.F. Giants' baseball field to benefit the San Francisco SPCA. For $56, a human and a dog got tickets to the game and got to sit in a special Dog Zone bleacher section that included SF/SPCA Dog Monitors and Veterinary medical team. Judging from the clothes on the human above, no one was overheated this weekend next to the Bay.
