There was an item in the New York Post this week about an Australian fellow who hosted thirty of his closest friends and family at his wedding – to his Labrador retriever. “You’re my best friend and you make every part of my day better,” he declared in reciting his vows. Makes sense to me.
On the other hand, this might be stretching it: the new Barkley Pet Hotel and Day Spa in Westlake Village, CA. We visited one day a few weeks ago and were alternately thrilled and horrified by what we saw.
Just in case you think I’m making this stuff up, here is the web site address: http://www.thebarkleypethotel.com/ And it’s not just California excess. There’s one in Cleveland, Ohio in addition to the Barkley on the West Coast.
Lest you think our own pooches have been less than pampered in our absence, fear no more:
35 degrees here in NYC this morning. There’s a faux Thanksgiving parade going on in front of our building, complete with balloons and extras lining the streets. Apparently for an upcoming Ben Stiller/Eddie Murphy film. You heard it here first. Happy weekend!
