La Folie

Ah yes, it's the madness of the holidays, shopping, and packing.  We went to the mall last night.  I got to strut around and got a few compliments.  Thank goodness Mom is not sick of saying to strangers, "Shiba Inu, it's a Japanese dog or, it's the smaller version of the Akita."  Everyone seems to know about Akitas but not Shibas.  Anyhoo, it started to rain and we went back to the car while we waited for Dad.
 




Mom and Dad went to La Folie in SF, a French restaurant for Mom's belated birthday celebration.  They were gone a long time but came back with a doggy bag. Dad had the  Sautéed Burgundy Snails, in Pernod Lemon Butter, Parsley, Bone Marrow Gratin and I got the bone. :)  Mom took pix of the dishes because it was artsy.
