Today Amoeba San Francisco celebrated man's best friend with our second-ever Dog Day Afternoon!

Amoeba always invites you and your dog to shop together in our store, but on Dog Day Afternoon we party on the Amoeba stage with special treats for doggies and their humans. Our doggie photo booth (designed by artist and Amoebite Aaron Arakiwas quite popular this year as were our $5 off coupons, which were given out to every person who brought their dog or donated to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.

Check out these adorable pet portraits by Amoeba's own in-house photographer, Kaitlin Layher. See you next year!
