VIEWS FROM THE STREET

What do you do for your four-legged friend?

Yukiko Yoshida
Office worker, 30
Tiara: 4
The most expensive thing I have bought for her is a name plate, for about 30,000. I carry her around in my bag to restaurants. Dog meals cost between 1,000-2,000 and we go once or twice a month.

Homemaker, 28
Momo: 11 months
I guess I would buy about 6 outfits a year. The most expensive is around 10,000 and cheapest 3,000. There's not many restaurants where we can go to eat together. We're looking for more so I, my husband and Momo can go together all the family!

I don't buy clothes for him, but I brush him everyday and wash him twice a month. I make food for him everyday like chicken legs and vegetables. We go everywhere together, even on holidays to the mountains or the sea, but he is scared of the waves.

Soba chef, 38
Lucky: 7
It's summer and she has long hair, so it's important to keep her cool. Probably the most expensive thing I have bought for her is a bed for 34,000 that stays cool without using electricity.

I live in Ghana so I'd need two dogs a big one for protection and a little one to play ball with. It's nice to go swimming with them. Me and the small dog can use the big one as a surfboard.

I have bought toys for her like two skateboards and balls to play with. I am training her to be a talent. She can do over 70 tricks. She has been able to ride a skateboard for 3 months. I take her to lots of parks Yoyogi, Ueno, Odaiba, but I think maybe Yoyogi is her favorite.
