MEXICO CITY, Nov 17 (Reuters Life!) - Patrons smoke and gossip into the night. Some sip cafe latte from sleek china cups. Others pant and drool and lick the floor.
All are valued customers at Mexico City's Bow-Wow Deli.
The tiny corner cafe in an up-and-coming residential neighborhood caters lovingly to dogs, although people are welcome, too.
Inspired by similar establishments in Japan, it may be the surest sign yet that this developing nation of more than 100 million people -- and countless dogs -- has one leg planted squarely in the First World.
