With all due respect to all the other hoods out there (yes, even you, downtown) Venice Beach has some of the chillest, most righteous dogs in town. We picked some of our favorite shots of pups in the sand, in front of all those 4:20 docs and on skateboards, obviously. We culled the shot from Flickr, notably the "Dog Of The Day" series from LAist Flickr photo pool contributor Benjamin Levy.
