If you are a typical American pet owner, you are spending some major bucks on that four-legged love of your life. The latest numbers indicate spending on pets is at an all-time high in the U.S. The American Pet Products Association says we're dropping about 60 billion dollars a year on our animals. And boy, some of the upscale sustenance! Special foods, purified water, custom beds, heating pads...I need to keep the computer away from Chili the dog and Patches the cat so they don't see this and get any ideas, because they are definitely on the low end of the pampered pole!
