To stand out in Allston, you should avoid being a liquor store, a restaurant, or a used-clothing shop. Or you could just sell fish. The Pet Shop also has adorable chinchillas and guinea pigs, talkative parrots, and slithering reptiles to drive your "no pets" landlord up the wall. But should temerity and finances fail you, you can always cuddle the owner's trio of friendly pooches that sleep by the glass doors.
