Why, it’s pre-substance abuse Ozzy Osbourne.
I had no idea he was so handsome.
Oh, to have money to burn on useless items.
On the one hand, I’m happy that these people aren’t actually using these houses for overly pampered pooches because 1) dogs should not be kept outside tied to chains near doghouses and 2) dogs will sleep in piles of garbage if that pile seems more comfortable than the $10,000 dog house.
This reminds me of really expensive pet food, which is totally marketed toward dog owners because, let’s face it, dogs eat turds. Their palates just aren’t that refined. If, however, a dog food company can slap the word “gourmet” on the bag with an accompanying high price, they can sucker a lot of dog owners into buying it.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll buy all sorts of dog toys and chewy treats and have an awesome time showering a dog with attention and love. But if I had $10,000 extra lying around, I’d send it to a no-kill shelter and not make some ridiculous high-end doghouse builder rich.
On the other hand, if rich people were to choose between over-priced doghouses and giving money to the GOP, let’s make Fido a mansion!
