It seems you can't just outfit your San Francisco doggie in any old sweater. As captured in the photo above -- and in many, many trips to the supermarket -- the thing to do is match your outfit to your dog's. And if your pet has no clothes to speak of -- well, frankly, that's uncivilized.
Just a few steps away from this gray doggie and his gray-legged master, Lower Haight regulars hung out at the Animal House Pet Mercantile; it was like Cheers
, but with doggie treats and bouncy balls instead of Rhea Perlman and beer.
The canine-centric crowd agreed that matching one's cur's affects to one's own was par for the course. But going beyond colors and into styles -- "that's kinda weird," offered one regular.
But here's something even more weird:
Yes, that's a camouflage dog jacket -- so you can match your pet while dressing like a commando and scaring the hell out of everyone near and far. And, yes, that jacket cost $85 --quite a bit more than a real camo jacket at the Army-Navy store.
But who can put a price on good taste ?
