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, the way some dog owners act. 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.
