Couple Spends Over $30,000 A Year On Their Dogs
Daniela Forshaw and her husband Mike have five dogs that probably live better than most people.
According to the Sunday people, both of them are mad about their furry pets and even say they love their dogs more than they love each other.
“We love the dogs more than each other – and both of us understand that. People might think it’s weird but there is no jealousy. We are both obsessed with the dogs.”
The couple spends at least $30,000 (£20,000) a year on food, clothing and beauty treatments – ten times as much as they spend on themselves.
Daniela, the self-confessed “crazy dog lady” says her beloved dogs are like children to her.
“Nothing is too good for our babies. They make Mummy and Daddy very happy so we give them a happy life in return as any good parent would do. We don’t just treat them like our children, they ARE our children. It annoys me when people can’t accept that. If anything they need us more than human babies would because children learn to do things for themselves but our little ones are totally reliant on us. They’re like kids who’ll never grow up and leave us. The dogs come first for both of us. We’d never divorce because we’d kill each other scrapping over them.’’
Mike completely agrees with his wife and shares her passion about their pooches.
‘’I have become just as obsessed as Daniela. Sometimes I come home and see her slaving over a hot stove but I know it’s not for me. The other day she made lamb meatballs for the dogs – but we sat down to a sandwich. And if we treat ourselves to an Indian we order a chicken tikka masala for the dogs.”
