Best Pet Boutique - 2006
It's no secret that San Francisco is a dog lovers' town, and no one caters to all types of dog lovers better than Hayes Valley's Babies. Whether you deck out your Chihuahua in the latest fashions or seek the most wholesome food for your Great Dane, Babies has it all. The owner, Michael Cunningham, and his two boisterous dachshunds, Zeke and Hank, run a chic yet friendly establishment stocked with the latest doggie trends and pet care basics. Though small, the store is stylishly arranged to showcase its amazing array of merchandise. One wall is stocked with gorgeous collars nearly from floor to ceiling, and the storefront windows are always darling and original. And its Web site offers all of that decadence online. So even if you're not the doggie-dress-up type, you'll find everything and more at Babies to (as the store's motto states) "pamper the pets you love."
