You probably hate the word “hipster” and why wouldn’t you? Your unique taste and style aren’t based on current trends, but actual interests. And the fact that it’s now trendy to be hip is pretty annoying. But you and your pet can shake it off. You both have a pretty aloof and independent vibe, so nothing bothers you too much. Your up-and-coming trendy urban area has lots of animals, parks and coffee shops with dog treats at the counter. But you actually lived there before it was cool. You love being outdoors and have contemplated living in Boulder or Portland, somewhere you can ride your bike everywhere and bring your pet to lunch.
For Dog Owners: You love being outside with your hound, and are always researching new pup-friendly restaurants, cafes and parks.
