Pickles the dog is the darling of Barton St E.  When he’s not barking out people’s names for potato chips, he’s whizzing in his favourite spot: The Cash Store on Barton and Ottawa.

“Pickles is my main source of income,” says owner, “Chips” Phillip.  Chips gets his handle from his food of choice.  “I put a hat down, collecting change – and I’ve got a sign that says – ‘Pickles barks your name for chips and change.  I have to say, I’ve tried about every flavour known to man.  A British feller gave me a bag of mint and lamb chips.  A feast for the senses.”

Not everyone loves pickles, though.  The owner of Hamilton Fish and Strips, a strip club/fish n chip shop” says he’s a nuisance and drives away clients.  “No one can understand him.  I lost a good bag of chips listening to him bark out nonsense – he spelled my fuc*in’ name wrong too.  Terry with a ‘y’ you fuc*in’ mutt.”

Whether you love or hate this adorable mutt, Happy New Year’s Pickles and Chips.  May your chips run as freely as your spirits.
