Apparently, there is a blood hound, a breed known for their multiple folds of skin, with a rare condition that creates even more folds that the average. Junior, thanks to his owners, has undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries, totaling some $16,000 in American dollars.
What? Well, according to Mail Online, the British couple spent the money because their dog was almost blinded by the folds of skin over his eyes, and couldn’t run because of the skin on his underside. That’s a lot of skin.
This nice part for the couple is that their insurance covered all the procedures.
Personally, I am torn about this. I know pet owners who love to lavish their pets with all kinds of extravagances, but this doesn’t smack of that. Having had pets with multiple health issues, I know what it means to spend a ton of money on health care and quality of life. And to me, that’s where this falls.
