Tucker does not.
And so when we go with my friend with beagles who hunt gophers and return usually willingly, Tucker is tethered with an eight foot leash. Dogs all around him are free and he is not. I imagine it’s not as much fun. During our quarantine time in 2020, I discovered a little piece of heaven just south of Fort Funston where Tucker could be on leash without others running up to him or making him feel left out running free: Thorton Beach.
If you walk far enough north along the beach or on the hillside, you will actually reach Fort Funston. But we needn’t do that. This place is beauty enough for the both of us. So much beauty, that I don’t even mind the steep incline to return to the parking lot once we have had our fill and our wandering comes to an end.
Even under a canopy of clouds, the land and sea were stunning.
