Wondering when they'll start having these for kids? *kidding*

The Bridge Street Market in Grand Rapids is launching Dogspot - they're climate-controlled, self-sanitizing dog houses that you can leave your dog in while you shop. And, for 30 cents per minute, you can watch your dog on a camera.

I'm a loud and proud dog owner and yes, sometimes I wish that there were more dog-friendly businesses. However, if I'm leaving the house to go grocery shopping, bringing my dog is NEVER on my radar. I like this if you've gotta make an unexpected stop at the store after the dog park but otherwise, I don't understnad the phenom of bringing your dog everywhere.
