FlexPetz. Fancy a dog but don’t really want the full time commitment that comes with it? Then you need this dinky little rent-a-pooch service. Just plunk down your monthly membership fee of $49.95, cough up an annual maintenance charge of $99.95 and hand over (hey, we didn’t say it was cheap, did we?) $24.95 a day and you can have a choice of lovable pets to come stay with you for any period. Oh and did we mention the $100.00 ‘trainer’ fee? Or the $35.00 pickup and collection fee?
Aw, but c’mon, think of the loving look on the face of little Rover as you tuck him into his little doggy bed, put on his sweet likkle custom walkies lead and feed him the free pre-packed food that’s supplied as part of the rental. Each mutt also comes with a GPS collar and dog bowl, which saves you using your best dinner plates. Members agree to use the service at least twice a month, or they get charged anyway.
The service is available in the US and UK, and we’d just like to go on record as saying what a marvelous idea this is. In fact it should be extended to children. Rent–a-Toddler would be a wonderful addition to the social fabric of our lives, doncha think?
