Doggie Diner Heads

Field review by the editors.

San Francisco, California

Spurred by the news of a Doggie Diner disaster, we tried to find as many extant Doggie Diner heads as we could. Best of the remaining heads can be seen [on Treasure Island]. John Law had collected three of them, and when not in a parade, or at Burning Man, they could be seen by passersby, in his Emeryville neighborhood. As of 2012, they supposedly spend most of their time on Treasure Island. A 2014 Kickstarter project raised funds to restore the trio and their trailer.

We've also been told that there's a Doggie Diner head at Streetlights Record store in San Jose; one outside the tasting room at Vino Noceto Winery in Plymouth, CA; and one at an Anderson Valley, CA, ranch named Sheep Dung Estates (more recently displayed at The Other Place, Boonville, CA).

In January 2005, a restored Doggie Diner head was added to the median strip of Sloat Boulevard near Ocean Beach in San Francisco.
