knowing zonker has not only improved my life, i'm certain it's going to fatten my wallet. the man is an entrepeneur, people.

last night we were discussing our new puppy, ranger. ranger is a golden retriever and an absolutely perfect pup. he's cute, he's small, he's a lovebug to pet and play with.

now the downside is, he's not our dog. my uncle's dog had babies, so ranger is one of eight. we thought we were doing my uncle a favor by driving him to his owner who lives in our neck of the woods, but along the way we fell in love. the owner is due to collect ranger on friday.

so i'm telling zonker how idyllic this situation has been. the boys had a premium puppy in the prime of his life, and now he's going back. no shots, no baths, no responsibility outside keeping the puppy alive til friday. what a life! zonker, who's honing his entrepeneurial skills, thought i should start a business brokering puppies to families like mine.

EUREKA, buddy!! i think i smell my fortune. net puppies, like net flicks, what an idea!! borrow one for a while, and when he starts stinking just put em in the postage paid box and ship em off! voila! your next favorite breed should arrive in a couple of weeks.

major pros and cons with this deal. on the positive side, no more death for dogs, no putting them to sleep. families will simply "upgrade" the older pups and little johnny will be none the wiser.

of course on the downside, we will be creating a population of dogs who feel entitled to a vacation lifestyle. can you imagine the doggy long term care facilities that will be needed to care for the older ones once their puppy cuteness wears off? ah well, drawbacks are a natural part of any business plan. we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

and hey if it works, i'm thinking baby broking is not out of the realm of possibility. humans are often cute when they are little as well. so place your orders, peeps, and don't tarry. there are 5 perfect golden retriever pups needing a good home, let me send you one today!!

puppylender.com, creating solutions for a growing indifference in our population.

hey, how bout a tagline contest?? i like, "puppylenders.com, puppies in the prime of their lives, for the lull in yours." anybody that can top that??

Forget the NetPuppies idea -- NetKitties is the hot market. Everyone loves kitties and hates cats, so the turn-around would be much quicker.

Those puppies are just tooooo cute! I think the boys need one to keep..... what???? No, I don't need one - I'm sure of it, really!

How 'bout WeBePuppies-N-Shit.com?

I just hope you snagged that URL. This could be big, Shoe. Still working on my tagline idea, though.

How about "puppylenders.com when you just want a quick kiss and snuggle from a bundle of fluff, we've got the right stuff."

Or - for that special someone in your life, send them a puppy that they can send back . . . (oh, sorry, I'm having flashbacks of when my sister bought my husband a dog for Christmas . . .ack!)

"PuppyLenders.com: Lend 'Em, Don't Blend 'Em!"
