It's a good life for pets in Britain...if you go by the amount of money their owners spent on them. Just how much money do pet owners splash on gifts for their pets? Turns out, a lot. According to this article, Britons spent close to $5.57 bn on pet food and almost $1.5bn on non-edible gifts for their pets.

What kind of gifts, you ask? Pets were treated to grooming treatments, day care, holidays, clothes and toys, beds and sofas. I have to say, some of these pet gifts are pretty awesome; hard to resist.
