Wanted to be a vet, but flunked. Did you love animals? No, the money was incredible

Anyone else concerned about the high cost of keeping pets? And even more alarming are the weird things for sale targeted towards pet owners. Check out the Dog Bikini, and the Luxury Velvet Dog Dress.

Then there are Dog Booties and shoes to protect your pampered pooch from “road chemicals, lawn treatments, and salt”.  Salt ?

But I really like Doggy Steps infomercial. Just watch it. Check out the testimonials by Elizabeth M. Victoria H. (the one with aggravated injury) and Christina G.

Doggy steps are great small breeds, fat ass dogs and dogs who can’t muster enough “I-actually-give-a-fuck” to climb into their master’s bed. Also, you don’t have to actually BEND DOWN and pick up the high maintenance bastard. That would be too much to ask for.

    kinda off topic, but its ridiculous how a dog is just another status symbol for most indians….
    They have no idea how to care for it, they are NOT animal lovers, they only care about how expensive the pup was, and how fashionable it is…..and then they try to discipline it….they refuse to let it come on the bed….they keep scolding it….insane dumb fucks….

    lol… The comic doesn’t seem to be as funny as the previous ones.. But your thoughts on high-maintainance-costs seem to be (umm….) quite colorful.. :)

    Hey Saad, check out this awesome mac wallpaper I made: Mac OSX Tiger Wallpaper.. Please do comment :)

    I was thinking, have you done a comic on operating systems.. I mean if you haven’t, i am sure that there is a lot of satire to found in mac-windows-linux fight. Check out some awesome vids at

    @peakk2: I know. This is what is called a filler comic. For times when the author is too busy elsewhere, but still wants to put some shit up. Thinking the audience will not care for a lousy comic once in a while. :( I apologize.

    @pri: Hey no problem. My research effort is the same as most students, i.e. Open browser, go to google, type query and press “I’m Feeling Lucky”.

    @abhiroop: Totally agree. I hate expensive dogs… they’re so… umm, costly? Take a walk in lodhi garden in the evening to check out the most expensive breeds taking a dump and pissing on misc tombs. Obviously, they’re being walked by the “domestic help”, and not really the owners, who are too busy doing whatever.

    @abhinav: Checked out the tutorial. Cool. Didn’t Vista do a Macish wallpaper too? Good idea about the OS comic.. Will think of something. But Dude!, you gotta cut back on the links in your comments! WordPress keeps putting it in the spam box ;)

    umm.. this didn’t give me a kick. animals/pets are meant to be loved, costs put aside.

    Like they say at the very beginning of the clip, the steps are for dogs who “have difficulty”, as in medical conditions. Joint problems, such as arthritis, commonly afflict dogs and cats, and make it hard, sometimes impossible for them to jump to the height of a bed or couch. I used a few boxes as makeshift steps to help my cat when she got older and it got painful and difficult for her to jump.

    Why would you want pets on your couches and beds anyway?! :| They shed fur all the time, and they run quite a bit outdoors (at least they should). Unless they just got out of the shower (unlikely) and they’re all squeaky clean.

    @saurabh: So it’s a social network for Dogs? I imagine dogs desperate for love checking out bitches’ profiles and leaving “Can I friend with you” scraps (or scratchs)…
