Doggie Diner Designer Dies

Harold Sherwood Bachman has died. Mr. Bachman was the designer of Doggie Diner's grinning dachshund, festooned with a bow tie and chef's hat that went on to become a Bay Area icon.

Zippy's Pal Bites The Dust

Zippy's Pal Bites The Dust Anyone who reads Bill Griffith's Zippy the Pinhead comic strip will instantly recognize the Doggie Diner statue, which was toppled over by high winds on Sunday. Many SF folks love the statue as a kitsch cult icon even without the Zippy association, but I only knew of it through the strip.
