An unusual dog-friendly restaurant posted a job ad that went viral: their offer to employ someone to pet puppies inspired hundreds to apply for that ruff job.

Sometimes, dreams do come true. Right now, some lucky guy or gal in Texas are about to live out my fantasy, but, hey, what can you do? I know I’m certainly not the only person to think so. A pooch-friendly restaurant called MUTTS Canine Cantina just posted every dog lover’s dream job ad on their Instagram page:

Essentially, the company is opening a brand new cantina on a new location and the top dogs are asking pawesome peeps to apply for an equally pawesome job. The position to apply for is the first-ever MUTTS Puptern, whose main duty will be petting puppies. For that troublesome task, they’ll receive a fair compensation: $100 an hour to endure all those wagging tails and puppy smooches. Nobody said it will be easy, y’all, this is a serious job. After all, there’s a big possibility you’ll overdose on cuteness.

This restaurant and bar is already a place to be if you happen to be a dog person and live in Texas. The concept is quite unique, as it is located at the heart of an off-leash park for dogs, so you can enjoy a yummy burger or a beer while your canine friend gets to run around and enjoy. Even if you don’t get the dream job of a puppy cuddler, treat your canine friend with a visit to this great place- they have locations in Dallas and Fort Worth.

And until you snag one of the animal lover’s fantasy jobs, such as doggie doula, caretaker on a feline island, or a professionally pampering shelter dogs, enjoy your pro-bono job of being a proud pet parent. It might not be paid $100 an hour, but it definitely pays off.
