The Warmup Lap | 5.30.12 - New Career Goal: Become A Dog-Runner

I like my job, ok? But how do I get this job?

Wichita's First Professional Dog Runner

Forget dog walkers, a new profession that has popped up all over the united states has now made its way to Wichita. The Wichita Dog Runner claims with just a little extra exercise, your pup could be calmer and more obedient.

Josh Jewell is a local marathon runner and dog lover who has made it his mission to make Wichita pets a little healthier and a lot happier.

You've probably heard the saying, "Choose a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life." Josh Jewell found a way to combine two passions into one fast paced career.

"I barely consider it a job because I'd be running anyway," Jewell said.

Well, since Wichita apparently already has their dog-runner, I suppose I can move to Edson, Ks., and start my company there. It will obviously be called Ten-K-Nine. (Not pronounced "tech nine" ... but maybe Tech n9ne could be a celebrity spokesperson or something. Kansas City isn't too far away.)
