Word has come down from the Examiner (wait, what?) that a previously very gay and very bathy house at 130 Turk is going to be a doggy day care business in the possibly near future of early next year:

A doggy day care center with space for up to 60 canines is scheduled to open early next year at 130 Turk St., which is on a rundown corridor between Taylor and Jones streets.
The facility, which could aid city-led efforts to rejuvenate the rough-and-tumble area, will provide only daytime accommodations for dogs, proprietor David Nale said.

Turk is definitely one of the more rough and tumble streets of the Loin and is probably what most people envision when they attempt to compact the premise of “loin” in to one street. Thinking about this stretch, I had to admit that I’ve not been down there recently and was trying to remember what it was like. Oh, right, now I remember.

Love or hate this type of enterprise, it’s always good to see local business owners opening up in what were abandoned spaces, which this most definitely was. Obviously, they’ll have their work cut out in establishing their chunk of sidewalk, but I salute the effort and hope for the best… barring Chris Daly forcing them to have to have low-income dog care on site as well.
