About twice a week, a visitor to the lush Hawaiian paradise of Kauai island will fall in love -- with a shelter dog, who's been borrowed from the local rescue group for a tropical outing, says the Huffington Post.
And if things go especially well, it might end with a plane ride to the mainland.
This innovative program, called "Shelter Dogs on Field Trips", has been around for some two years now. Tourists missing their pets, as well as locals who want a furry friend for an excursion, are encouraged to pick up a specially-vetted KHS dog. Then away they go, for what sounds like about the most idyllic experience around.
