Rent-a-Dog

Several of my friends including Tad and Lola have been looking for fundraising possibilities. Well, CNN has reported on one! In size-cramped San Francisco, you can RENT a dog for a day and for a hefty price:

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 Cervantes' 10-dog crew of Afghan hounds, Labrador retrievers and Boston terriers.

That's a lot of dough to be made! However, as corgadors are priceless (and I am busy dining with my new buddy Barack) I hope the ma ape does not get any ideas about making us WORK for a living. Though I'm pretty sure I could rent out my sissy to anyone who needs a tennis ball retrieval system (she could be the ball boy at a tennis match, except she would beat even the fastest player to the ball).

Here's an ad for my sissy from me. (Isn't there a word for dudes who rent out ladies? Let me think of it...oh yes, entrepreneurs!)


For rent: One totally annoying sissy who wants to play with tennis balls ALL DAY and is too skinny because she's totally picky and only wants to eat meatables. She runs really fast and wants to hunt anything and she can't control her stupid tongue. She likes to sit on laps. For $.99 a day you can take her off my paws! I accept Visa, Mastercard, Cash, and Wallymelons.

Hat tip to granny for seeing this story. I hope she wasn't trying to help my ma ape find a way to pay for my butcher bills.

Some hotels have dogs you can walk. The Fairmont in Vancouver BC has a nice lab.

N.mom keeps on threatening to stay there so she can get in a brisk walk between her meetings and shows.

I would pay 500 dollars to walk with you and your sissy.

These humans are awfully smart to include Boston Terriers!! I would rent your sissy so the doofus could chase her and I could get some rest.

Wally: Do you think you could also list Teka on the for rent page? She is pretty hard on Stuffies, and I love them. She needs to contribute and I already have a job.

Rentable Boston Terriers...interesting. I sure hope my Mom doesnt' see this, she might want to rent me out and I don't think I'd like that at all!!!

Thanks for the warning...

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Oh reaallly??? Geee, what if the dog gets stolen by that person who rented it? But I honestly wouldn't mind renting sissy for the whole week(since the price is very cheap) then we both can go crazy with tennis balls day & night!

Love licks,

That's a very unscrupulous post there.

How can you possibly suggest renting out guapissima sissy for any sort of services?

I shall have to get on a plane and come and rescue her from the paws of her wicked stepbrother. (I hope it won't be tiring though)

Poor innocent, beautiful Ethel, about to be rented out into the slave trade.

Oh yeah...I'll rent Sissy! She and Lola can chase tennis balls all day (and Lola will be too busy to bite my legs) and in the evenings we'll lay in the yard & eat meatables.

Sounds perfect. Let me get my funds together
