THIS JUST IN: RIP 2 Wasabi-Chan

Got this note from Cuteporter Edward H., who just posted it on the CO FB page.

“It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Wasabi-chan at 6:30pm Tokyo time today, the cute kitten in a mushroom costume who was featured here.”

Sigh, been a tough summer for our friends, from Schoep to Jay V. to Chase The Baseball Doggeh, and now Wasabi-chan.

When you love the furballs like we all do..it makes their passing that much harder, doesn’t it?

082513-am045The Giants have had a “Ruff” season. In fact, it’s gone to the dogs.

CO’s kept you up to date on several Bark In The Park events during the summer, and today’s update is from CO’s home team and venue, the San Francisco Giants and AT&T Bark. This event’s called, quite creatively, “Dog Days of Summer.”

According to the MLB site, “Prior to game time over 500 furry, four-legged canine fans paraded around the warning track with their hoomin companions.”
