Famous Pets: Pet Supplies for the Rich and Famous
Life is good for most celebrities’ pets. It seems like a fashion these days to flaunt your pet in public if you’re a celebrity. The most popular is the canine. I’m not sure who was the first person to start it, but it definitely caught fire. One Hollywood movie that definitely influenced this trend was Legally Blonde. Reese Witherspoon’s Bruiser dog in the movie went everywhere with her. She dressed him in clothes and jewelry. She pampered him as if he were a child. Not only movies influenced this trend, but real-life celebrities as well. Paris Hilton was one of the first that most people probably remember. Paris and her Chihuahua Tinkerbell appear on the pages of various magazines each week. She turned a simple dog into a fashion accessory. If you can believe it, you actually take your dog for a pedicure and that’s definitely not at a discount pet supply store. Most people think this is crazy, but more and more celebrities are joining the tabloids with their pets.
Celebrities buy all kinds of jewelry for their pets. They get things like diamond necklaces and designer clothing leashes for their puppies. Celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears take their dogs everywhere with them. Not only are Louis Vuitton bags a fashion craze, Louis Vuitton dog carriers became a fashion item in Hollywood because of the pop stars. Mariah Carey lets her dog Jack bathe with her, boy does she get the royal treatment. She spends hundreds of dollars on pet supplies every month just to groom Jack.
One of the craziest stories around is about the fashion designer who was hired to make the wardrobe for Tori Spelling’s dog, Mimi LaRue. Some celebrities simply have more money than they know what to do with. Does Your Dog Really Need Personalized Pet Clothing? Another celebrity who never seems to shy away from being the center of attention would be Sean “Diddy” Combs. In fact, he dressed his Maltese Sophie identically to him for 2004 fashion week in New York. I wonder what your pet supply budget will be!
Celebrities like the Osbornes took on MTV reality shows, and their pets became stars, too. People who watched the show knew the pets by name. They saw how the dogs were pampered every week as if they were humans. Osbourne’s dogs definitely carried some stylish and luxurious pet appeal. Sharon! Have you seen the% @!% & * Pet Supplies!
One of the most popular things to do with your dog right now is get canine training from Cesar Milan “The Dog Whisperer”. Oprah and Denise Richards are among the many celebrities who have joined this movement. They invite Cesar to their home to help them with any problems they may have with their dog. Cesar offers his opinion on pet training and supplies, but most of the time he trains the owner.
Some celebrities go a bit overboard and take things to the extreme, but others just pamper their pet like you and I would if we had the extra money to do so. Pink, for example, gives her Bulldog “Elvis” only bottled water. Oprah only buys her dogs designer collars, like the Burberry necklace she bought for Sophie. These are just a few of the celebrities who are constantly in the news for being crazy about their pets. One thing is for sure, if I were an animal, I would like to be a celebrity pet.
