How did we not know about this sooner??

Leave it to the Japanese to invent the official Best Idea Ever. We’ve often dreamed about filling our office with puppies or kitties to play with at will, and now we know we’re not the only ones wishing we could just hang out in a room full of pets once in a while.  Read More
