Luckily Japan's Aeon Group heard their pleas, and well along comes the fully decked out dog retirement home. The stylish home comes equipped with a gym, swimming pool, grooming parlour and round the clock dedicated veterinary treatment. It is designed to accommodate up to 20 pets currently. If it deems popular, the retirement home would no doubt expand so it can take on more dogs. Owners of their cherished dogs would be able to visit the retirement home at any time. Thus, dogs can live out the remainder of their lives in the laps of luxury where every whim is attended to affectionately.
We wonder if this latest fad will catch on for other pets. Maybe a retirement home for feeble cats or spa relaxation for retired birds... who knows! At least pet owners are trying to do right by their ailing dogs by placing them in a place that provides excellent quality care. We are aware of many dogs, when they reach old age of being dumped in shelters or pounds which is heart breaking. Although putting your faithful companion in a doggy home may hit your wallet, it is something many devoted pet owners prefer than carelessly offloading them at a shelter.
