There's nothing more ecologically sound than reusing old buildings for new purposes instead of watching them crumble or razing them to build something new. In this case, however, a former gay bath in San Francisco is going to the dogs.
A long-shuttered Tenderloin bathhouse is reopening more than two decades later, but this time it will cater to an entirely new clientele.
A doggy day care center with space for up to 60 canines is scheduled to open early next year at 130 Turk St., which is on a rundown corridor between Taylor and Jones streets.
The new business will be called Bulldog Baths in honor of the abandoned bathhouse, which was renamed after opening in the 1930s as Club Turk Baths, according to Nale.
I'm not going to make any of the "doggie style" jokes that spring to mind.
