They say that dogs are man’s best friend, but all the dogs I grew up with weren’t really treated as such. For one, we kept our dog outside and I felt sorry for Booger (he was a German Shepherd) shivering in his dog house when it rained. His meals consisted of hot ramen (which I spilled once on him and burned off a patch of his fur) and anything else from last night we didn’t feel like finishing off—basically scraps. If this was a friendship, it was probably one-way.
If you’re looking for ways to upgrade your own dog’s standard of living, get them a new collar. A Diamante dog collar is the epitome of luxury and comfort for the dog-owning elite. The padded Italian leather collar rests comfortably on your dog’s neck. Studded with crystals, your iced-out dog will be the envy of the pack.
Speaking of comfort, the best way you can make your dog more comfortable is by giving it a place indoors with its own indoor dog house. Don’t be cruel, especially in this frigid UK weather.
If you insist on taking your dog outdoors, don’t let its little paws freeze. Buy your dog their own warm winter boots. Ruffwear (get it?) puts out a line of Grip-Tex Boots with ankle straps to keep your dog’s paws toasty.
For all that unconditional love dogs shower us with, you think they would get a little more out of the deal. Spend a little time and money once and a while on pampering your dog. A few toys and occasional treats or better living conditions are all part of your responsibility as owners.

Dogs can tell how big another dog is by their growl (and they never lie about their size).
