Annnnnnnd this is the greatest way to make money in history.

Mutts Canine Cantina has a new internship, or Puptern-ship, that will pay you $100 an hour to pet puppies, greet Mutts members, and show all dogs some love. Mutts Canine Cantina describes itself as a dog friendly restaurant, bar & dog park. There are two locations, both in Texas: Dallas and Fort Worth.

“We are looking forward to hiring our first ever Puptern,” Kyle Noonan, co-founder of MUTTS, said in a statement. “There aren’t many opportunities out there that pay interns to strictly play with dogs all day long. Typically, there may be other responsibilities that come with the job, but not this one. I’d be lying if I said this is going to be one ‘ruff’ internship.”

The Puptern will work for about four hours per week, and eight weeks total through fall and winter.

So, how do you apply? Here’s what they said in an Instagram post:

Show us your puppy petting skills! Do you have what it takes to be the first-ever MUTTS Puptern at our brand new location in Fort Worth?

I know what you’re thinking – it’s only four hours per week. Yeah, but that’s $400 for some college kid, or a real adult. I made $5.15 an hour at Dairy Queen back in the day – I wasn’t sniffing $400 a week (pun intended). As a bonus, the interns will also get food from the restaurant.

Food and puppies. That’s all you need to be happy.
