A dog receives £30,000 worth of pampering

A dog owner has spent over £30,000 on pampering her Chihuahua.

Josephine Carter, 50, and her daughter Kelly have admitted to spending more money on their miniature "glam" dog Queenie than themselves, including purchasing the pet clothes, wigs, bespoke furniture with jewel encrusted detailing, carriers, luxury poo bags and beauty treatments.

Josephine - who owns her own dog fashion website Licks of London - is quoted by The Sun as saying: "Queenie is worth every penny. I spend way more money on Queenie and her wardrobe than I do on my own, I just can't help myself and when I can I make sure we're matching, even when it comes to her poo bags.

"We're not silly with dressing Queenie up, if it's hot she goes au naturel but in the winter she's so tiny and gets cold quickly. Humans wear clothes every day to keep warm, it's no different for Queenie.

"Queenie has the highest end beauty products including her toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and doggy nail varnish, she always has to sparkle and loves being pampered."

The two -year-old pooch - who turns three in June - boasts 30,000 followers on Twitter, including TV personality Jonathan Ross, and after competing in competitions she has gained VIP access to all the shows.

Josephine explained: "I can't take Queenie anywhere without people making a fuss, she's definitely a celebrity in her own right in the doggy world. By the time we get home she can't wait to stretch out on her own black velvet chaise-lounge, which is encrusted in diamonds and has pink lining to match the curtains in the living room.

"Queenie loves a nice long soak in the bath too and after she gets a pretty pawdicure, with special doggy friendly nail varnish, which finishes her day off nicely."
