Ikea introduces dog parking bays

For many, getting around IKEA is their Olympics.

Fortunately for dogs, entering IKEA is an absolute no-no, but in Germany they no longer have to sit at home awaiting their owners return.

Behold! Dog parking bays. The future of Scandinavian convenience shopping.

The IKEA branch, in the Cologne region of Germany, have built the platforms covered in Astroturf and a water bowl. On a serious note, it's targeted and preventing people from leaving their dogs in their cars, and as such is ace.

Sad that we even need preventative measures, though.
