I am pretty certain I have learned to spoil Lady in a mere four months. I have bought her the essentials (good food, a bed, pet insurance, toys, etc). However, I love when she is with me and my husband. We enjoy her so much and really do love her like a kid. We got married in our 40s so we never had kids. This allows our fur kids to get a lot of attention. How do I know I spoil her, we have been known to plan social activities lately around where the dog can go. She loves to ride in the car, socialize and go places. I like nothing more than a good walk or a bike ride with my Lady, she is so easy to spoil because she came to me, well like a Lady (so well behaved). I also think spoiling her is somewhat related to buying unnecessary things. For example, I am guilty of buying Lady two Halloween clothing items. I feel guilty about that as I type this. I should have bought a Halloween costume for a child in need. Why do we spoil in this way??? I guess is that permanent-grin Lady has and the endless warm fuzzies she gives back. Awwwww.....it is so easy to spoil such a loving and cute pup!
