WOMAN SPENDS £100,000 on her ........ DOG. In the seven years she’s had her diva dog, Lola, Louise Harris has splashed out more than £100,000 on all sorts of extravagant treats.
Lola is the proud owner of a £5,000 hand-made designer bed and her own jewellery collection. She also has hundreds of hand-made dresses, costing up to £400 each.
In fact, the fashion-conscious dog now has so many clothes she needs her own adult-size walk-in wardrobe and her own chest of drawers at Louise’s home near Stansted, Essex. - Sue Crawford, The Mirror (28/11/2011)

But, just like in a scene from the hit 2003 film BAD SANTA starring Billy Bob Thornton, he reduced her to tears. - Steve White, The Mirror (02/12/2011). In pretty bad taste I know but what can I say except I'm a Brit with a typical warped sense of humour.
