A woman in the UK has jumped straight to the top of my favourites list after admitting to dropping a casual $1.7K on her pet pooch for Christmas this year.
Helena Mueller, 38, has not only purchased and wrapped 68 individual gifts for her pet Cockapoo, Lola, but she's also admitted that it'll be more than her own six-year-old son Harry will be receiving this year as she simply 'loves Lola more than Harry', reports 9Honey.
“I do love my Lola more than Harry. You know, Lola never moans about homework, and she never complains about what's for dinner.
“She had her first snow yesterday, and I came in and realised I hadn't taken any pictures of Harry - but had absolutely loads of Lola, and that's what always happens,”
Now, if you've already taken a giant sigh of relief because whatever amount you've spent on your pet suddenly seems completely justified - just wait.
Lola's spoiling isn't just a once-per-annum event, not at all.
The Cockapoo also has her own bank account - what for, you ask? Oh, only her monthly allowance of $174, which we're assuming she earns by being a very good girl.
“She's changed my life so much... We do everything together, she comes running with me and absolutely everything!
“My husband's view is 'happy wife, happy life', he knows where he comes in the pecking order - it goes Lola, Harry, him!”
