Markets In Everything: Dog Time Shares

SAN FRANCISCO - From the state that popularized purse puppies, drive-thru dog washes and gourmet dog food delivery comes the latest in canine convenience — a company that contracts out dogs by the day to urbanites without the time or space to care for a pet full-time.

For an annual fee of $99.95, a monthly payment of $49.95 and a per-visit charge of $39.95 a day, (discounted to $24.95 Sunday through Thursday), animal lovers who enroll in FlexPetz get to spend time with a four-legged companion from a 10-dog crew of Afghan hounds, Labrador retrievers and Boston terriers.

Ahhh yes, another sign of just how rich this country is...

Paying to be a pseudo dog owner is a pretty bizzare idea...

People who even casually consider this foolishness should make a baby instead. By my ciphering, this amounts to about $11,500/yr. Assuming, of course, constant "companionship." This concept is marketed toward very shallow, narcissitic people.
