Thought sushi was just for humans? Time to teach Rover to use chopsticks. Trays of doggie sushi are just one of the unbelievable finds at the brand new Barking Babies store in Yaletown, where the style-savvy owners have transplanted their Tokyo doggy chic.
Pack up your miniature Dachshund, teacup Chihuahua or piccolo Pincer and head to the cute little shop for Chewy Vuitton toy purses and plush Jimmy Chew stilettos that will hopefully keep your dapper yapper from gnawing on the real thing.
Dress doggy up just like you, in pink fur-trimmed parkas, camo hoodies, Italian cashmere turtlenecks and skull-and-crossbones tees (he's so over that Gore-Tex jacket from last year, ok?).
But better get it quick: most of the stock is limited edition, so that your dog won't run into any embarrassing situations by wearing the same outfit as another au courant canine at yappy hour.
