Have you ever wished that you were a beloved pet? Perhaps a pooch or a kitty? This question might sound absurd at first, but you’ll want to think again after reading this article.
Did you know that some of the animals have a glamorous and pampered life that is far more impressive than ours? In fact, those residing in Hollywood along with their millionaire masters may have the best lives among all pets.
You may have heard the famous idiom, “it’s a dog’s life,” which traditionally means living an unhappy life, but now this adage has a newfound meaning thanks to these Hollywood dogs who seem to be living better lives than us.
Here are some of the most pampered pets who’re living the life we could only dream of:
Fuego – Robert Sepulveda Jr.
A 5-month-old crossbreed of Chihuahua and miniature-pincher named Fuego stole the heart of Robert Sepulveda Jr., a fashion designer and the star of “Fining Prince Charming.”
So much so that they even share a bed and go to Hollywood’s King’s Road Café and Runyon Canyon together every day.
The former fashion model said that the pooch brings him immense happiness, but getting a dog wasn’t his intention originally– he just needed one to join him for the premiere of Netflix’s “Dogs.”
So what Sepulveda did was to call a friend, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’” Lisa Vanderpump, who has a dog foundation and rescue center.
However, upon meeting Fuego, it was like love at first sight – he knew he couldn’t just let the pet go. He noted that as a single person, it would be nice if there was a pet you could come home to who will love you unconditionally.
Mackintosh – Parisa Fowles-Pazdro
Mackintosh, or Mackey to his owners, is a British bulldog that is also a registered comfort dog.
For those unaware, emotional support animals (ESAs) have been rampant in Los Angeles – these are pets, usually canines, that give affection to people who may be suffering from depression, anxiety, phobias, and many more.
As for his mom, Parisa Fowles-Pazdro said that the dog is a very important part of their family, much like a child.
That said, it is a no-brainer why Mackey gets to do some of the most lavish things: eating organic food every day that costs at least $30 per meal and checking in once a week at the $100-per day D Pet Hotels, a doggy daycare that boasts a 6,000-square ft play area and even queen-sized beds for those who wish to stay overnight.
Fowles-Pazdro frequently travels because of her business, Max-Bone, a clothing and accessories brand for dogs and cat, but Mackey has yet to accompany her in one of her trips.
Last Christmas, Fowles-Pazdro and her husband Max even wrapped Mackey’s gifts. As for the special treatment the dog gets, she reiterated that they were just normal people but their .
Isa – Sian Gordon
Nine-year-old Isa, a mongrel, always accompanies his master, Love Yoga Studio owner Sian Gordon, from group yoga classes to private clients in their homes.
Her clients would know this, the dog comes and runs freely around as long as he’s wearing his ESA jacket. The master found the canine when he was just four weeks old and still covered in fleas in Goa.
Unlike any other dogs, this one doesn’t like too much attention – in fact, Gordon explained that she and her husband would have to persuade the animal so that they could cuddle him.
Great Lengths for Dogs
As far as how dog owners from Los Angeles are, Fowles-Pazdro admits there is nothing like them as they are willing to go great lengths just for their pets.
Four years ago, she made Mackey his very own jumpers and after she was pleased with the product, she decided to launch her dog collection.
She started off on Instagram but later on, department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus order her products such as leashes, ceramic bowls, and grooming products.
Her line wouldn’t have flourished had the demand been low, but looking at it right now, there are far too many owners who are willing to spend more for their four-legged companions. In fact, it has even attracted customers from Tokyo and Vancouver.
The American Pet Products Association said that Americans spent about $70 million on pet products in 2017.
