The pet-economy phenomena sweeping the US is huge in Australia also. We live only 10 minutes walk from Cafe Bones - an outdoors dog-friendly cafe in the middle of the Hawthorne Canal off-leash dog park on the the border of Leichhardt and Lilyfield in Sydney. The menu includes coffess and cafe food for humans, and biscuits and pupaccino's for dogs! Even our local Lilyfield Organic Farmer's Markets are in on the pet-craze with 2 dog food-only retailers with fabulous products. The Delibones Barkery sells gourmet pet treats in neat packaging, and Baliz Woof Woof sells organic dog wholefood (not dried) and assorted products.
