Attention Travel Guidebook Consumers: How Important are Upscale Dog Boutique Recommendations to you?
Like this one for Un Chien Dans le Marais, a shop in Paris that apparently does such a good job meeting spoiled dogs’ most demanding needs that it merits Lonely Planet‘s seal of approval?
I have no idea what the context here is but I was reminded of these pics I snapped a few weeks ago of this pooch outfit shop by a discussion on the.ego.tripper where the.e.t. discusses a recent disappointing episode with Lonely Planet’s India guides. And wondered if Lonely Planet was getting a bit over-the-top commercially.
From the shop’s point of view, any publicity is probably good publicity. For Lonely Planet it’s a tidbit for their readers who like to shop for their spoiled dogs in Paris. And another sticker on another window.
I just found it odd.
Dog! God! I guess that was the point.
