Your dogs are going to love this place

By Art Gallagher

I was surprised on Saturday morning as I headed south on Rt 35 in Ocean Township for the grand opening of Green Leaf Pet Resort and Hotel.  There was a line of cars several blocks long down 35 to get into the place!  The surprises kept coming when I pulled in. It was packed outside. Two radio stations were broadcasting from the front parking lot along side the bbq pit. The valets were directing traffic instead of parking cars for tips and there were hundreds of happy people and dogs coming and going.

This was no ordinary kennel opening.  When did kennels start having grand openings? When are crowds of people happy and not competing for some imaginary prize at a highway location in New Jersey? Where did all of these well behaved dogs and people come from?  I only heard one dog bark loudly during my visit and that was in the back parking lot.  Who serves hamburgers at a kennel opening and why aren’t the dogs begging for the people food?
