(AP) — The restaurant chain that they advertised is long gone, but San Francisco’s Doggie Diner heads are still beloved by city residents.
KGO-AM reports (http://bit.ly/LWzyEP ) supporters have raised 48-thousand dollars via an online campaign to restore the giant figurines.
The three cartoonish canines known as “Manny, Moe and Jack” were fixtures at the former Doggie Diner chain, which closed in the 1980s.
Since then the Doggie Diner heads have popped up periodically at art gallery exhibits.
The new funds will be used to restore and store the figurines. Owner John Law says he also hopes to display them at city events.
