People still spending on dog massage, etc.

Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The recession is little deterrent for Los Angeles residents who insist on body wraps, massages and aromatherapy -- for their dogs and cats.
I definitely would first stop coloring my hair before not taking my dogs to get pampered, said Adriana Merida, 36, owner of two Havanese named Otis and Zoe. She takes the dogs to members-only The Club Beverly Hills, where they can partake of yoga, Jacuzzi soaks and kosher meals.
Such indulgence contrasts with an increase in animals surrendered to shelters across the U.S. by owners who cant afford their pets because of economic setbacks. Southern California has enough wealth to sustain companies that supply upscale pet care, said Joan Storms, a retail stocks analyst at Wedbush Morgan Securities.
In Hollywood, LA Dogworks offers day care with aromatherapy and hydrotherapy, along with a so-called Fetchmobile to chauffeur pets for its 2,000 clients, who include actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Nicole Richie. It plans to open a second 11,000-square-foot (1,000-square-meter) facility in West Los Angeles later this year. LA Dogworks charges $45 for 12 hours of day care and $75 for a one-hour massage.

LOL, well to some their dogs are like their kids and it's worth spending even if you are on a tight budget. Not saying that it is smart, just saying that some do. I think that pooches are happiest with their owner's time and love, spending money can never be a subsitute.

I gotta say I would not pay someone to do it. I give Lexcee a massage every night before we go to sleep. Yes I admit it she is a little princess
