Hooves introduced himself to @ashleycardiff and I at a Walgreens in Chinatown, San Francisco. He then showed us a few things about the city.
  1. Chinese food for Christmas is his GO FUCKING TO! Start with the long beans!
    2b058efb 02ed 483d b09d c1c253b00271
  2. Finish with the Peking Duck!
    329d6fe3 81f7 4dd4 8603 14d07d5b4503
  3. It chilled out for a bit after that, as the food coma forced us home early. But in the morning Hooves was ready for the day.
    B7e6f6d0 6763 4475 8395 67640ce8dcc0
  4. He prefers the stairs. Elevators remind him of truck transport, which blows.
    44bbe335 46ed 4df5 b1b7 2ff1ad430b16
  5. But not breakfast burritos.
    0a226be8 610f 4ec5 a052 c1c86823b9f0
  6. Or horchata.
    8b48f346 fe8b 4945 82e6 c9d5b478c928
  7. He makes friends anywhere.
    6fa9a7a5 52a7 4292 ba60 f45e33549a1c
  8. Although these fish were pretty indifferent to him.
    906ca4cc 218d 4d02 89a7 2e946a71b2e3
  9. But these fish let him hang out for a while.
    4ef7be1f b80c 431b acd1 63292e8eb7f1
  10. He even made friends with some plants.
    Fbc5e8ca 9792 432a 9f26 3ecd5d8a5c43
  11. And this sweet pit bull.
    C65e6fd5 8811 47be 9407 46629839d74c
  12. But then it was time for more Mexican food.
    D4aecf06 3305 4459 bfe2 a732feba8726
  13. This bean stew was better than it should've been. Hooves knows the hidden gems!
    6a7b6d4b 1a18 4f9a a634 335a4c6e1ce9
  14. He didn't really care about the shrimp tho. It was fine.
    A8159965 84bf 4737 8096 305c1407cbd6
  15. Hooves was pretty bummed about that shit pack of Polaroid film.
    92816902 72c2 4375 b01c 2043b82bdcdd
  16. So he decided to grind up some weed.
    75136cf9 6e00 49ab a582 de68231bca64
  17. Which made him pretty chill and unafraid of this octopus.
    6f395270 1628 461e 9bfc b2550192cf3a
  18. Strangely he wanted to dominate this turtle. No one was upset. It was fine.
    77dd7e75 8cab 49f8 9877 24c114267c18
  19. Checking out some mushrooms for like twenty minutes.
    119b7656 a896 4dea a1d0 f99b6914f306
  20. He wanted to cross this bridge but it was really out of the way.
    18a381c9 d0f0 4d15 a492 1446f0f57461
  21. We decided that vintage shopping at Relove was more important.
    C73ff76e a283 4fe2 a59f 485d5e6d0f0a
  22. He wasn't sure what to make of this figurines, but was really obsessed with them for some reason.
    899a430b 3e4b 49b5 8dac f159446c8612
  23. But then the butler bulldog stopped by and he forgot all about them.
    Fa30228b 731a 4547 acd7 3d881989b602
  24. He felt a little shamed by this waxing parlor.
    23817da0 1255 440f b898 fb0c0293a982
  25. And was feeling a little hungry, so we went to a seafood spot in the Castro.
    77859f85 135c 4ff7 87ee 32c2a4d0642d
  26. There were hard decisions to make there. The cioppino and the pasta both looked great...
    0d8d9ec5 83e7 4267 b736 157449f3590b
  27. ... but ultimately you just can't beat cioppino.
    964adfa5 af85 4605 957a f2bb558fc573
  28. He ate way too much.
    D2473ce9 7b35 4da9 b755 87ac67fff880
  29. And kind of died for a few minutes.
    E188987c b83d 41e3 97fe 742a24978e01
  30. And then both of these things stressed him the fuck out.
    Ad0cc176 c574 447d 8442 867ae4a0e5ae
  31. But homer reminded him he had a spliff.
    2c4ec753 a418 48a1 954d be8fb64c4698
  32. So things evened out alright.
    073ff167 8a62 4fd6 97ef 2354dd31934d
  33. And then he dj'ed a bit. He's not that good, honestly.
    F201ed61 4570 4566 bef5 e0436a6eb1c5
  34. So we got some mochi.
    B3ced4f2 8dbb 4e39 9853 6086532f3955
  35. We went to @nakajima's place. Which had a lot of weird rules.
    F1fe22a6 7e4c 466e b8b8 bed9eb0ab64b
  36. Like, seriously? Maybe some about if it's yellow let it mellow, but no flushing ever seems a little strict.
    68cc1ff0 daed 447e 8697 de3840469e79
  37. He couldn't deal with all these rules, so another spliff.
    Dbd8fe35 2743 4f97 b8d6 b7afdc2e12fd
  38. Properly chilled, we went to Yamo, but they were closed. Which was heartbreaking.
    D5971634 d78f 403d 83e6 7b3cda6f5085
  39. So we got another burrito.
    B1f05e4f 0d31 4918 ab99 e433e74c46d5
  40. Shoe shopping was tough. Nothing in his size.
    67f64905 8816 4e04 ac05 4d31c8903a25
  41. And these steps. Fuck you, SF.
    E52d27a6 28bb 4e7a 9648 bf3deec74869
  42. It was almost time to leave SF, but the hotel was a bit of a mess.
    F34165c7 a91e 45b1 a733 e39daf7fbf46
  43. Not the worst he's seen, but still.
    89b2d81f ce1d 46cc 9bea 5dfe8e475f47
  44. At least he made a new friend, Paws.
    2ca4adfb 9d97 4c2a 82cd 39ac8ba1958d
  45. Leaving SF, we passed through Oakland for his favorite burger.
    E8ef49a5 3b5e 4900 a2a0 d6be4ed6ed2b
  46. He almost opted for the veggie one, because that fried yuba bacon looked dope.
    3c788d8a 1d4d 4507 933a 1906bf091896
  47. But ultimately stuck with standard Kronnenburger.
    1aaa5cda 185a 4157 94cf 2297ffa0ba25
  48. And then we hit the road! LA bound!
    E1f0f910 0c16 4eec b68a d549d7109339
  49. Hey rest stop truck friends!
    B64e818e de1c 4093 9397 bbc080f4e299
  50. He didn't really like being considered a pet, after all we'd been through together, but he had to go somewhere.
    Fdf42d13 64db 4a76 9197 9920d5bcbf0c
  51. Back on the road, and he was delighted to hear some pre-"pretty hate machine" NIN.
    484e1507 efd5 47f2 adb0 1f890f3e82a4
    Seriously, check out the song "Maybe Just Once"
  52. Back in LA, he was lucky enough to meet Bigfoot (via @liana)
    6f13fa2d acf1 4ff9 ada1 ac4591982c2b
  53. And then he slept. Standing up, of course.
