The New Business – Years Later

I mentioned my friend Joe earlier on. He’s a great man, with great ambition, and a kind sole. He’s one of the people that has helped shape my life as I got older.

Nowadays in retirement, I work at a dog store helping people pick out the best accessories for their dogs. Everything ranging from dog crates to dog playpens to dog houses – you name it, I sell it.

I don’t need the money anymore – I’m simply here because I love to help people and I love dogs.

The favorite thing that I love to sell people is dog crates. Specifically the MidWest Life Stages Dog Crate. Why do I love selling dog crates? Simply because they are the single most important piece of dog equipment that you can buy. Think about it. A dog crate can be used to shelter your dog, to train your dog, and to keep your dog safe.

A dog’s crate is his or her home for when they’re tired or scared. It’s their place to be when you don’t want them destroying things or chasing after your guests. It’s like a multi-tool, almost.

I always tell people that the most important thing that they can do is purchase a strong, durable, large dog crate. Why? Because their dogs are always going to get bigger than they expect. They’re also going to be stronger than they expect. It’s always better to overplan than be underplanned when disaster hits.

Usually when I tell people this, they kind of stare at me dumb-founded. They always thought that a dog’s toy was the most important thing to buy. Nope – not at all.

A dog crate is the most important thing. Never forget that, people.

I’ll get back to my life’s story in a week or so. I just wanted to give an update on what I do now in retirement.
