Canine Lodge & Spa 3781 Park Blvd. 92103

(619) 443-0719 Victor Esquer began Canine Lodge & Spa more than 25 years ago, and it has been a San Diego institution ever since.

However, prior to founding

the premier pooch pamper- ing facility—which includes grooming, flea treatments, dental, nail trimmings, dye jobs, and a bevy of haute cou- ture for your canine—Esquer was simply known as “Ar- rooh.”

While on a summer cross- country excursion, said Es- quer, his neglectful, alcoholic parents left him, while still just a toddler, to fend for himself in the wilds of Alpine, where a wolf pack adopted him. Then, one day a gay couple, Terry (the y is silent) and Percy, discovered the boy/wolf and adopted him—christening him a champion for surviving as a “Victor” of strange circum- stances. Now, Victor sets himself

apart from the pack with Canine Lodge & Spa, by providing the aforementioned services. See his upcoming autobiographical Disney-made film “Arrooh to You, Too,” coming spring 2013.

In the meantime, you can stop into Esquer’s Hillcrest, French-style boutique and see him in his new surroundings.
