Puppy Cafe in Jangsan, South Korea

Jürgen Horn and Mike Powell are living in Busan, South Korea, and reporting on their blog For 91 Days. In the neighborhood of Jangsan, upstairs from a pet store, they found the Puppy Cafe. Like the cat cafes of Japan, this is a place you can go to pet, play with, and enjoy the companionship of the pet that you can't have in your apartment.

We moved into a separate area for the smallest dogs, and I found my favorite of the day: a snow-white Pekingese, so soft, cuddly and pliable. He had no problem with me picking him up, and immediately settled into a comfortable position on my lap. Jürgen welcomed a little pinscher onto his lap — two Korean girls who were there petting poodles, told us that the pinscher was (and I quote) a “whore”.

The cafe was a blast; the dogs were cute, funny and friendly, and we had a great time playing with them, although we did stink like hell when we left. I’m surprised that more doggie stores don’t offer a place for people to sit and play with their dogs. Especially in a city like Busan, where apartments are small and lives are hectic, dogs are a luxury that don’t fit into most people’s lives. A place like this, where you can come and get your puppy fix, seems like a no-brainer. And I’m sure the dogs love it.
