Despite publishing sixty-two short stories from 1951-1954, Philip K. Dick was still living in poverty in Berkeley in the '50s. This pet shop was where he reportedly bought the horse meat that he survived on. It was sold as dog food, but according to Dick, the clerk did call him out on the fact that he was eating the horse meat himself.
