Doggie Diner heads on Valencia

John Law’s Doggie Diner head trailer is a mobile landmark in San Francisco. This evening they happened to be leashed on Valencia outside Stage Werks.

Anyone who’s lived in San Francisco for a while knows the story behind the doggie heads; they were the mascot of a local fast food chain called the Doggie Diner. After the chain went out of business in the 80’s the heads seem to have ended up various places. For example one of them is mounted on a pole in the median of Sloat at 45th Ave.

You never know when or where the doggie head trailer will appear. It’s kind of like Frank Chu, except that Frank Chu’s signs tend to make more sense than the concept of eating food that was cooked by a dog. Yuck. But hey, I’m not in marketing.
