These guys were shopping at the Timbuk2 outlet on Hayes Street in SF tonight. I told the couple with them that the dogs were beautiful (I do this alot - when I see a handsome dog, I can't shut up about it.) The guy with the feet in the picture teased me and said that they were foxes that they'd trapped in Golden Gate Park. (Then he fessed up that they're a chinese breed, the name of which escapes me.) I think they're quite possibly the cutest little dogs I've ever seen.
Update: I think Allen nailed it -- they sure do look like Shiba Inus.
