In this city even a digital camera can't contain all the images of microscopic dogs outfitted in outlandish accoutrements. But this -- this is astounding. And, what's more, there's actually a good reason for it.

Meet Patty, a remarkably mellow Pomeranian. She's not bedecked in a Snuggie-like Elizabethan collar just because it looks adorable. She's recovering from leg surgery and this getup is meant to keep her from gnawing on herself.

Patty's owner -- well, actually these are her daughter's dogs, making them her granddogs -- Yuen Byun didn't want Patty to hog the spotlight, though:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
