Last night, I took my Canine Prince (he’s the one in the red outfit) to the Howl-o-ween costume party for dogs at Fenway Bark, a high-end daycare/kennel in Boston. Below are two other canine party guests, and here are pics of other canines in costumes. This place is so fancy that some of the dog accommodations actually include high-def computer monitors with Skype. You can actually Skype your dog while you’re away. I had my boy stay at Fenway Bark a few weeks ago, but we got the cheapest accommodations. It was still really nice.
I have been convinced for the past couple of years that I spend too much dough on my dog. His food is organic ($36/bag), his treats are organic ($2.99/ounce), his grooming runs about $60 every six weeks, and so on. Am I crazy? Maybe. But I don’t want to feed him cheap food, just in case the specter of tainted food rises again. Somehow the Alpo that I fed my childhood dog is not good enough for my boy.
