Most of us love our pets to death, and have no problem lavishing attention upon them when they are good. Sometimes in the winter, if we happen to live in a cold place, we might even knit a sweater for them (especially the little ones). These days, if your dog is acting a bit strange, you can even take it to a pet psychologist. There seems to be no end to the ways we try and make our animals more like us.
Keeping with this tradition, some people have gone so far as to throw a wedding bash for their canine friends.
