Dogs Get Their Day, and a Font

Between the nearly $1,000 chinchilla fur coats and the exponential growth of the organic dog food industry, it’s hard to dispute that this is a dog-obsessed world in which we live. Don’t get me wrong—I have fond memories of my childhood dog, Sadie, our beloved Dachshund that proudly delivered half-dead toads to our back door as if they were rare jewels. But she wasn’t running around in red tartan.

Still, I couldn’t resist this chart I saw on that brilliantly matches dog breeds to specific fonts—from the ostentatious and elegant Kunstler (Standard poodle, natch) to the burly, languid Eurostyle (bulldog, prone). Of course, my personal favorite is Fraktur, the unconventional and very German font chosen for the Dachshund (German for “badger dog”). What font would you choose for your pooch?

it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of 
an airplane.
