Your canine, in fact, could say as much about you as your ZIP code, your coupe or the cut of your blazer. Dogs, you see, are the fashion accessory of the day. "It's almost impossible to have the right style without the right dogs," declares designer Isaac Mizrahi in the docudrama "Unzipped," after admiring Eartha Kitt's twin standard poodles.
