Stella! Stella is a friendly sort, which is a good thing, because she is the official customer service department, spokesmodel, and canine liaison for An Urban Tail (Facebook, or here for Instagram), which makes, in Stella’s own words, ‘Woof woof bark arr arr grr!’ Or, in the words of her human business partner, ‘Handmade Upcycled Dog Goods’.
Unfortunately their online etsy store is currently offline after a disagreement of some sort with a business partner — I gather Stella and she had some sort of artistic differences — but they sell at markets in the San Francisco area sometimes, and if you like them on Facebook or follow them on Instagram you’ll probably hear about it when they get their new online store set up. Hope it’s soon!
In the mean time, Stella, a Yorkshire terrier shih tzu mix, is rocking her customer service outfit. At 12 years old, she is blind in one eye, but leads a very active lifestyle, and keeps herself young by plenty of aerobic exercise and lots and lots of sniffing. When asked what her favorite part of living in San Francisco was, she said, “Whimper scratchscratchscratch whine”… oh, I used that joke already, didn’t I?
