Being a single bachelor in my late twenties at the time, I had no business toting around a Yorkie, even if he did have a big name. Still, I promised to take him until we could find him a home. You probably know what happened next… Samson took over my house and three days later, he and I were best buddies and we’ve been everywhere together ever since. He’s a very smart little cuss and I don’t know where I’d be without him.
Today you’d find Samson in my house in
I ran across an article lately that will be the answer to all my kenneling prayers very soon. Being introduced to the Minneapolis airport very soon (as well as Houston George Bush, Houston Hobby, Dalls/Ft. Worth, Chicago O’Hare, Denver, and Chicago Midway airports), is an airport kennel hotel for dogs!
Imagine a kennel that boasts the following properties:
- Open 24 hours
- Free airport shuttle for customers from their enormous parking lot
- Reasonable prices ($15 to $75)
- “Rooms” for dogs that range in size from basic kennel to a full doggy “sleepover” with indoor/outdoor access and an in-ground bone-shaped pool
- Webcams so owners can watch their dogs on the internet
Apparently, Americans spend more than $3 billion per year on groomers and boarders for their pets. Airports are constantly on the lookout to boost non-air carrier revenue, so it seems like a natural marriage.
With names like Pet Paradise or Paradise 4 Paws, an airport kennel shouldn’t be hard to find near you!
