I know my million dollar ideas don’t typically work out and that’s why I’m blabbering away on a corner of the Internet instead of on TV selling ideas to people. But hey – one of these is going to hit a homer. I just know it.
Today’s million dollar idea? Puppy Amusement Parks.
There are tons of people that want to have a dog but can’t because of their life situation. Me, for example. I love the guys but I just can’t have one in my apartment. I couldn’t give one enough space for it to be happy, I couldn’t be home often enough to spend time with it, and I can’t afford to feed one and buy it all the awesome things I will want to give it for being so darn adorable.
But I’ll tell ya – on a day as beautiful as yesterday was, I really wish I had one to strut around the neighborhood.
On a gorgeous day, the first thing I do when I wake up is thank God for the super awesome day. And then I wish for a puppy. Because what’s the sense in a gorgeous day if you don’t have a dog to take to the park during it?
That’s where Puppy Amusement Parks come in.
You know what would be so much cooler than an animal shelter? An non-profit animal amusement park. I’ll just create a super awesome dog utopia and house as many dogs as can comfortably and happily live in that space as possible. And I’ll charge admission to humans.
Think about it. The dogs get people to play with them, they get state-of-the-art dog equipment, and people get attached to a particular dog during their time there, perhaps they’ll even give it a good home.
Of course, I’d have to hire vets and animal folks of different shapes and sizes and whatnot. And the money spent on a ticket price can go toward the cost of housing, treating, and showering the dogs in love and affection 24-7. But designing the place will be loads of fun. I could just throw a bunch of little kids in a room and have them dream up the place. Heck, I could run a contest at schools all over the nation to dream up the most awesome dog utopia they can think of and use it as a way to boost awareness of local shelters. I’ll bet five-year-olds can dream up some pretty slammin’ dog superparks.
I’m thinking a Seuss-y look would be cool, but that will be my backup plan in case the 5-year-olds don’t work out.
But they will. They’re brilliant.
And if you don’t like this idea, then you must hate puppies and little kids. Those are the only reasons I will accept. ♣
