I know a lot of people who say they would love to have a pet... except that they don't have [insert reason here]. I'm one of those people.
I love animals! If it weren't for my allergies I would have a pet.
I also leave home at 7:30am and don't return until 7:30pm because I head to the gym right after work. That would be a long time to leave a pet inside. Plus I don't have a yard and I think a dog should be able to get out an run and play.
So... here's my idea for a new business. It would be called Pet Share or Part-time Puppy. I would match people up with different schedules who still want a pet, but not full-time. I would love to have a dog I could pick up in the evening from someone who was home all day, who works in the evenings or at night.
You could share vet costs, if you went on vacation the dog could stay with the other person full time, a built in pet sitter! You could take the dog every other weekend but still have a free weekend to come and go as you please and not have to rush home to go walk Fido.
What do you think? I would do it!
