While most people are content treating their pets to the ocassional plate of “people food" on special ocassions, or perhaps going so far as to give Fido his own Christmas stocking full of doggie treats, some pets are pampered more than many people pamper their children. Celebrities parade through the tabloid headlines, carrying their latest spoiled pet in their arms; upscale pet boutiques sell clothing, designer perfumes and even fancy shoes for dogs and cats; favored pets enjoy private air conditioning systems in their dog houses; tiny teacup dogs sport collars costing more than many new cars!
If there were a contest for the most pampered pets in the world, the competition would be fierce. Paris Hilton's famously pampered pet dog would surely be in the running, especially now that “mommy" has her own branded line of top-shelf designer pet apparel. But non-celebs can keep their “babies" in the running too, whether their tastes are as lavish as Paris’ or they prefer the classic look of a pet trench coat from Burberry, perhaps paired with an elegant Gucci collar. And what pampered pet ensemble is complete without a proper manicure, offered by many pet grooming salons (complete with your choice of colored polish)?
Of course, the most pampered pets need more in their lavish lives than just fancy apparel. Outdoor pet houses are available with all manner of amenities, from climate control systems and uphoulstered interior furnishings, to exterior styling to rival the loveliest estate homes. Indoor pets can lounge on the finest goose-down feather beds, and enjoy hand-cooked meals on the finest serving silver. Pet entertainment systems are even available, for the feline left to watch the house alone, allowing them to watch video of fish and birds on demand (thanks to their own remote control).
But the most pampered pets aren't those who are left at home when their owners go out, no matter how lavish their surroundings. Surely, the most pampered pets are deserving of their own holiday accomodations at four-star pet hotels, available to accomodate travelling pets all over the world, from the UK to Japan. Rather than hiring a common dog sitter, your pampered pet can enjoy their own private hotel room, complete with plush furniture, on site veterinarians, “personal trainers" (aka: dog walkers) and even room service meals! Such accommodations are available to pampered pets around the world, from the UK to Japan.
