We're long past simple vaccinations for our pets, and chains with which to keep them under control when out for a walk. Earlier, you had to visit the Animal Hospital at parel when Rover fell sick. Now there's a vet on every street, and if there isn't, there will be a mobile van offering you services.
These days, they're spoilt for choice when it comes to food, accessories, grooming, even clothes. Accessories include beads, hair-clips, body belts, designer beds, pet shows provide the perfect platform to showcase your poodle's tricks and bag prizes, and spas for that extra special treat. The breeds are outre as well, from Chihuahuas to golden Retrievers, pugs to a Japanese Spitz. And if you want your poodle to look French, it's a hey presot thing at the local dog parlour.
Laddie and Lassie, poor things, never had it so good before.
