Hey, you can even buy a franchise where you live, proclaims the banner.
Karen spotted the satisfying fact that the humans in charge had crates behind them so the dogs could rest between work periods of getting petted and adored.
Also annually, I look and dream what could be if I had a whole lot more money than I do.
I made a list.
