Yesterday we mailed my estimated tax payment. My husband is paying bills as I write. We just put a deposit on a sailing vacation.
Life is expensive. It’s time to figure out how to make money with my dog.
Money Making Dog
Which of these do you think I should try with Honey?
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model – She’s a blonde who’s built like a brick dog house. Who wouldn’t want to see her lounging on the beach in a see-through collar?
Voice Actor for Books on Tape - What? Don’t you think dogs like listening to Lassie Come Home too?
Performing Tricks for Tourists – Merengue dog has really stepped up the competition. Honey would probably have to sing and dance to make any real money.
Pizza Delivery Dog – She’s fast. She’s polite. And what’s a little drool between friends?
Boat Delivery Service – People pay thousands of dollars for someone to deliver their boats to new locations. Think anyone would pay me and Honey to deliver their kayak?
Housekeeper – Honey would make a great cleaning service. There is not one crumb of food on any floor in my house. Now dog hair? That’s another matter. But hey, it’s so pretty.
Walmart Greeter - OMD, it’s practically in the golden retriever breed description!
House Painter – Honey always manages to get some paint on her floofie tail while I’m working. Maybe it’s time to go to the next level.
Pet Blogger – Y’know I don’t think all those blogs featuring animals telling their own stories are legit. I bet some sponsor would pay good money for a dog who actually writes about their product in her own words. Now I just have to teach her to type.
Petsitter – Honey has been awesome with the foster dogs in our house. She’d love earning some extra money taking other dogs for walks and making sure they go to bed on time.
If anyone one of these works out, Honey could cover the cost of her own food and vet bills. If the right one works out, maybe she’d share some of her earnings with us.
Your Turn: Can you think of any more money-making opportunities for Honey? How about for your own dog?
