How do you know someone has more money than he knows what to do with? He spends $10,000 to have a religious ceremony for his dog:
David Best decided to throw a party for his dog named Elvis. He decided to make it a “Bark Mitzvah” and had guests like Dr. Ruth show up at Sammy’s Roumanian In Manhattan.
And, yes, there is video.
I spent $1,200 on my cat Pierre when he had a liver problem, but it bought him a few more years in pretty good health, so I consider it money well-spent. I’d spend that much or more on Dutch and Maggie, the two cats I have now, if their health were threatened. But I’d never make them wear silly hats or sweaters, behaving in the the way some dog owners are inclined to. It would offend their dignity just so I could make some kind of statement about myself to other humans. David Best is, if I may borrow a Yiddish expression, a putz.
