If you really want to spoil your dog, take Rover to the day spa. In between the "hydrosurge baths," pamper him with a little ancient Chinese medicine... This ain't no ordinary dog-sweater, it's specially designed to contact "various acupressure points [...] to reduce anxiety behavior in the wearer." No more barking or biting!

Does a neutered animal still have a "Conception Vessel acupressure meridian?"

I really hate dogs. So I drives me nuts to see how much people spend on the really dumb wolf wannabes. Don't much like cats, weasels, or humans either, but that's rather beside the point.

Nothing funny here. The service dogs that were used after 9-11, to help find bodies thrived, and were very helpful, but the dogs that were brought into hospitals to help cheer up the victims who survived were so intuitive and empathetic that they needed frequent breaks and massage therapy to recover. Dogs are more than simple beasts, they are a gift from God and deserve all the love that we give them. Sorry, end of sermon.

Reduce anxiety??? I'd like to see the inventor put one on a German Shepherd or a pitbull.
