Dogs bring civilization wherever they go

Catherine Osborne wrote an interesting paragraph for her article “Bien chien” in the magazine Design Lines Toronto.

Starbucks used to be the sign a neighbourhood was on a gentrification upswing. But now, it’s your local dog boutique. They’re everywhere – spas that offer organic shampoos, daycare centres with webcam feeds, bakeries that sell handmade biscuits with restaurant-grade ingredients.

Really cool that dogs are now setting the standards for urban renewal, gentrification and all things cultured!

Thanks,  la Culture Populaire!  (Not so much, Design Lines Toronto which has a crappy web site.)

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

  1. Haven’t dogs always set the standard for gentrification? Lol.
