    Hi
    I joined this forum to give my daughter a helping hand in her campaign to raise awareness of a tragic new departure into madness - Rent a Dog!
    A "business venture" is due to start up in London - fresh from USA! - whereby for about £30 you can hire a dog for a weekend! I'm actually speechless!
    The poor things will get shoved from pillar to post - not knowing who to attach to! It's called Flex Pets - presumably short for Flexible Pet Ownership!
    Please Click Here to sign a petition that we've just started. Let's spread the word and at least let people know what's going on.
    Many thanks for your time.
