“Yes, I’m a little on the extreme side — he likes to be carried like a baby and he sleeps in the bed. Plus, he gets a new toy on a weekly basis.”

“We have five labs and a cat. There’s lots of rawhide chews and milkbones — the dogs are very pampered. The cat, he just hangs out.”

“Yes, he gets lots of love and attention and lots of treats and good food.”

Geez, where do I start? $20 in treats per week. Gets to publicly urinate and deficate in the yard, any time, day or night. Free room and board, and gets to hump the legs of anyone that walks in the door. Licks the junk in front of anyone, from the neighbors wife to the minister. . . . . and that's just me! You oughta see what the dog gets away with!

In former Soviet Union, pets think about whether they should pamper you.

My chickens & ducks get to eat dinner left-overs. Oh, and we built a pond for the ducks, so yeah, they are pampered.

The Princess, for her evening meal, gets browned ground beef & a soft-boiled egg mixed in with the lamb & rice kibbles. She also has a door person to accommodate her frequent ins & outs to the fenced back yard. The entitled one also has her own people-sized bed in which she scrunches up the covers just so for a comfortable session of guarding from the view through the window. At night, she sleeps on our bed. And when the Baby sez play, we grab the tennis balls & play.

My friend, Gus, loves his pastries. Every morning he stops by the ATM & then heads over to Munchers Bakery for, as Gus calls it, dollars to donuts.

The Princess gets some doggie biscuits every day.

Two expensive insulin shots a day and expensive prescription cat food, and not being euthanized. Yeah, he's being pampered.

Wouldn't the dog be able to chew off the pampers?

Ah yes, even in America the dogs are obese. Third world peeps, take heed...if you do not treat your pets like how us Mericans do, then you are heathens!

Can't top that g_rock!

The lab gets to ride in the cab of the truck on long hunting trips. Otherwise, she doesn't want to be pampered. Just to eat. Anything. Cheeseburgers. Sardines. Anchovies. Smoked oysters. Octopus. Crackers. Any cheese. Pickles (Sechler's Sweet Heat is preferred). Licorice or any other candy. I took her to the ocean and she ate clam shells. Her favorite: kim chee, but if she eats that she rides in the travel crate in the back of the truck due to the thermo-nuclear methane trama that follows.
