ZOMG! I had this idea four years ago – I knew I should have sent it to myself through the mail!! – and now someone’s doing it. I’m glad about it though, it seems like they are doing it well. My idea, however, would have given 98% or so of the profits to shelters so it could be a way to make money for shelters while increasing adoption rates.
I never ran with it because it didn’t quite seem animal rightsey enough for me, but I have all the details written down on page 47 of my 2004 journal, written while sitting on the beach in Hawaii and wishing I was sitting next to a sweet puppy.
Shelters! Let’s do this – email me and I will tell you all my ideas! We won’t call it “rent a dog” though, that’s downright insulting – Friend for a Day!
