Britain’s most pampered pooch has had a staggering sum of $52,000 spent on her over her short lifetime – and even owns three vehicles and a boat.
Lucky Princess Cleopatra Superchill the Staffordshire Bull Terrier has had a life of luxury that includes 65 attires and 175 pairs of sunglasses and even a bespoke $1,970 pram so she doesn’t get her paws dirty. The spoiled pet has just celebrated her seventh birthday where her owned Anthony Welsh expended a further $1,313 on lavish gifts for the pooch he describes as his “daughter”.
Cleopatra was treated to the finest tennis balls, a posh feeding station and her very own custom-made mountain bike in honor of her special day. She was then thrown her own beach party at the Marino Lounge dog-friendly cafe at New Brighton, on the Merseyside coast, along with her bulldog boyfriend, Frank, and Frank’s owner, Toni Green. They enjoyed doggy birthday cake, doggy steak and partied with balloons and presents – which she opened herself by ripping off the wrapping paper with her mouth.
Welsh, 57, has not been possible to do enough for his delightful puppy – named Cleo for short – and he loves dearly. With no partner or infants, adorable black, white and brindle Cleo gets all of his attention.
“Cleo is just amazing, she really is one in a million. People may think I spoil her but she’s like a daughter to me and if I have the means why not devote her everything, ” he said.
A personal trainer, Welsh lives a clean and healthy life and expends hour and fund so Cleo can have the same lifestyle. She is exercised daily both on foot and on her own mountain bike, which is specially adapted so she can ride along.
Welsh buys only the best puppy food for his pooch at around $52 a pouch and Cleo has three kids’ sports cars – a 4×4, a convertible white sports car and a racing car, all at $656 each. The preened pooch – who even goes for regular manicures – rides around in her vehicles in her countless outfits for every occasion and a number of tiaras.
Cleo, who Welsh describes as his “world”, is given a daily massage and has songs sing to her when it is time to go to bed.
“She makes me smile every single day. I feel love from Cleo every single day of the week, ” he said. “She’s unbelievable. She’s a legend.”
Welsh obsession began when he rescued Cleo from being locked in a cage when she was just a year old.
Speaking about Cleo’s tough start in life, he recollected, “We rescued her together with her mother when she was just a pup. She was so quiet and completely different to the larger than life character she is now.”
“She was actually diagnosed with depression so I was on a mission to attain her happy, ” he added. “In six months I noticed a huge difference in her temperament and we’ve run from strength to strength.”
She now is a hotshot in her own right and vies in dog proves around the country. The precious pup has won a staggering 89 ribbons at puppy proves, gaining accolades for showing best tricks, waggiest tail, shiniest coat and best dressed.
