Doggy therapy

While going for a drive today, there was a bit on the radio talking about dog therapy. I had heard about pet psychology before, but thought that this was going a bit far.

Basically they were referring to the growing popularity of taking your dog to a spa for therapy, which could include a masseuse, aromatherapy and acupuncture. The lady speaking thought (but wasn't certain) that the acupuncture would require the dog to be sedated.

This is indicating to me that I am getting old. I don't have a dog (only fish). If I did, pretty sure that I have much better things to spend my money on then a masseuse for the pooch.

Thoughts?
 
I for one applaud those that have figured out how to scam those with more money than brains with pet shrinks and pet spas. Bilking those with more money than brains is your patriotic duty.

On the one hand I know that animals aren't all that different people, but on the other it is definitely ridiculous.

Frankly I think those things are exorbitant when most people get them.

I believe that even 'doggy steps' is too much of a comfort, dogs shouldn't be on the furniture at all. That's why my woman's couch is stanky, it doesn't matter how often you bathe a dog, it's gonna stink up anything and everything.


but I do approve of parting fools from their money.

Surely its a sin to give your pet a spa when there are people in the world dieing from a lack of clean water
Is it also a sin to have a shower every day?

My dog doesn't smell.

I don't really care about these places. People spend their money on worse stuff every hour of every day.
Personally, I give my dog massages myself. He loves it so it makes me happy seeing him so happy. I have a pretty strong bond with my little man, it's amazing how much you come to appreciate the love and company a pet brings you when you almost lose them to an injury or illness.

Sedating your dog to give them acupuncture is ridiculous. Sedation gets more dangerous each time you do it, to sedate a pet for something so silly is just moronic imo.

Surely it's a sin to spend time on a forum when you could be donating time to help the less fortunate?

Bottom line is, taking your dog to one of those places is completely ridiculous.

And my previous point still stands; let's not split hairs.

While zapping, stumbeled across a wedding of 2 dogs on 'Hollywood Pets' or something.
With a cake and everything...
What would you say to people who orchestrate such events(the owners of the pets) ?
