One last dog
The eateries with their vinyl stools at Formica tables, were the first fast-food restaurants after World War II, uniquely fashioned for the masses to munch hot dogs and hamburgers on the run.
The proprietor was a bit of a showman, too. He would buy the prize bull at the rodeo at the Cow Palace [remember those?] every year and take it around in a trailer. The champion bull would then become the prime ingredient in Doggie Diner dogs, according to his son.
