What's the craziest thing you've ever done for your dog?

G'day Dog Lovers,

What is the most bizarre / way out there / crazy thing you've done for your dog? What's the one thing you've done that, although it seemed perfectly normal to you, would seem silly to a non dog-owner?

Maybe you've forked out thousands of dollars for medical treatment, maybe you let your dog sleep in your bed or perhaps you push him around in a pram? Whatever it is, I'd love to hear about it.

The one thing that I do for Max that people who aren't animal lovers don't seem to understand concerns food. I'm happy to spend plenty of money on super-premium gourmet food for him, while just as happily sitting down to a bowl of cereal for my own dinner.

What's your story?

letting my fully grown Rhodesian Ridgeback sleep on my bed everynight. i only sleep in a single bed which doesnt leave much room for me but its worth it :) my girl Siera is the light of all my days i love her so much and we have had 6 amazing years together. i got her when i was 11 and am looking to get another one soon.

The craziest thing I have done for my dog was to dive into a freezing cold lake fully dressed to rescue him from drowning when he became stuck while trying to retrive a "stick" that was really a large tree under the water. Thats when I discovered dogs cant swim backwards and hypothermia is really not good for anyone!

My 12 month pale golden labrador, Rosie, has already had 3 operations on her elbows as she started limping at 4 months and was diagnosed with severe elbow problems. Her favourite things - playing with other dogs and eating - are now severely curtailed. She cannot walk very far, and is on sedatives every day to slow her down, even around the house.
We have now built on our 2 story home, a special Rosie ramp. This is 3 ramps with 2 landings, carpet walkway and low gradient.
She can now go downstairs when she chooses (and not be carried down stairs).
What else can you do?
It is not her fault and she never complains.

When I bought my new car (Barina Hatchback) I spent an additional $800 to have a solid foam rubber and wood platform custom made fro irn the back so my 2 Maltese can see out when we go for a drive :-)
