There are plenty of places to go if you're feeling lonely and want to meet people, but what if it's your dog that's feeling lonely? What if Rover wants to make some new dog buddies to chase sticks in the park with, or Fido wants to find that special someone with whom he can share long, tail-wagging beachside walks?
Here's a screengrab from the Tindog website. If you're going on the hunt for doggy friends, you will of course need a dog.
This photo was taken during a difficult patch, before Edie discovered the possibilities of Tindog. Mashable composite Edie wasn't sure about Tindog at first, but we eventually persuaded her to give it a go. First, we had to sign up.

We wanted to show off Edie's fun side, so after some deliberation we settled on this. Tindog works in a similar way to its human inspiration; you're shown a series of "profiles" or in this case a load of different dog photos and you swipe left if you're not interested and right if you like what you see.Amazing Rural Street Dogs Walking and Play on the Road in the Morning at Phum Svay Dongkom

You're not fooling anyone, Sufi. After several hours and zero matches, we started to panic. Well, I was waiting in a rainy car park to go walkies with Will and Oscar.
We used the app to exchange messages about the dogs and walking locations. It was all very businesslike which, on the one hand, was reassuring as neither of us would turn up with expectations of anything more than just a walk. But on the other hand it felt a little cold.
I knew nothing about the person I was going to meet beyond where they liked to walk their dog. I was determined not to talk too much about myself, to ask plenty of questions and not to come across as needy.
I brushed Matilda to within an inch of her life and sprayed her with special doggy deodorant. It was five minutes after our agreed meeting time that I spotted Will and Oscar walking towards us.
Matilda strained on her lead and immediately made a play for Oscar, doing the obligatory yapping and doggy bottom-sniffing. I turned the conversation to work — he was in IT and worked mainly from home, hence his availability for middle-of-the-day dog-walking.

I tried to make a light-hearted comment about not usually dressing so badly when I went on dates. He reeled off a couple of places famed for their seafood. We continued along the footpath in silence for a few minutes as I desperately tried to think what to say next. To be honest I was finding it tough, which was weird as I can usually talk to anyone about anything in the park. But I think you need a spark between the humans too.
