I was cutting through my favorite crazy pet store in Odaiba, when I spotted what I thought was a deli counter where pet owners who had become famished while stocking up on camouflage dog strollers and duck muzzles could grab a bite, but when I looked closer, all the artfully styled food models above the refrigerator case were intended for dogs!
I know. I shouldn’t be surprised there’s gourmet take-out for canines in the land where people buy magazines devoted to the latest dog hairstyles and get up early to make doggie bento lunches for their pooches to take to obedience school, but sheesh, I honestly kind of thought those people were outliers. Apparently not.
