60-year-old Englishman Paul Halligan has arguably the best job in the world.
So, what does he do?
Well, Paul has been a cab driver for pets of celebs, footballers, and other eminent personalities. Some pet owners even address him as ‘Uncle Paul’
Following personalized instructions from pet owners including putting the pets’ favorite radio, tucking them into bed, and everything in between, Paul has driven over 100K miles.
Paul told: “I love everything about the job! I’ve been doing the same route for nine years now and been picking up some of those dogs since they were puppies, that are now nine or 10 years old.”
Paul loved animals since his school time and even looked after his neighbor’s chickens and dogs to earn some extra money. After working in various domains and roles, finally he landed this unique job vacancy for a dog chauffeur.
Paul’s custom-designed dog-taxi plays calming panpipe music to help dogs relax, has custom-fitted beds and a temperature control feature.
Paul said: “It’s a great way to start your morning, going to pick up the dogs and seeing their happy faces, tails wagging and excited to see you.
“The bond you have with a dog is really special, no matter how long it’s been, they never forget you and will always love you once you make that connection.
“I’ve been out walking my own dogs in the park and had dogs from Bruce’s spot me from afar and come to say hello, I’ve even experienced it with dogs I haven’t driven for years when they see the van out in public!
“I’ve seen the owners’ children grow up too – going from kids getting ready for school when I pick up the family dog, then going to university and now coming back having graduated and working in professional roles.
“It’s a wonderful part of the job, making those bonds with the dogs and their families.”
