Katy Harris from Middlewich, Cheshire, UK has spent more on her three Boston Terriers this Christmas than you have probably spent on your entire family collectively for the past decade.
Her dogs Beau, Sooty, and Noodle are enjoying dog advent calendars, personalized stockings, Christmas collars, cashmere sweaters, quilted jackets, toys, chews, treats, and a photo shoot—all to the tune of £3,500 (that’s over $3,600)!
They even have their own miniature tree and plenty of dog-specific decorations. And, of course, they get their own three-course meal of chicken, steamed vegetables, and gravy, served in their bowls like a traditional Christmas supper.
“I’ve definitely spent more on the dogs than I have on [my husband] this Christmas,” Mrs. Harris told The Daily Mail. “They all love Christmas and they get so excited. They can smell any treats in their stocking and they’ll ferret around to try to find out what it is, just like kids peeking at their presents. We don’t have children, so the dogs are like our babies.”
Sort of makes us feel like we should be spending more on our babies…
