More proof that this neighborhood is fast becoming the most overprivileged yupp'd out neighborhhod in America: A doggie spa. It's not here yet, but its in the making. Technically a "doggie fitness center," dogs will be able to swim in an 8 by 20 doggie pool, and they will also offer doggie massage and doggie reiki, "a Japanese technique for [doggie] stress reduction and [doggie] relaxation," according to the South End News. Only in the South of End could we have stressed-out dogs. Maybe they're sick of eating beef tenderloin in a morel shiraz goat cheese and pea tendril reduction and just want dog food. Maybe they, like me, can't stand the sight of another pair of Uggs boots or Burberry scarf. Maybe they've just had it with granite, maple and stainless steel.
This would be a fun activity for your dog while you partake of the South End's most expensive omellette ($50.00, includes foie gras) at a certain Tremont Street yupporium and then shop for heirloom tomatoes on Waltham Street! Voila, you're pretentious!!
My question: does the doggie massage come with a "happy ending"? Or is it a "legit" doggie massage spa?
