Tuesdav, September 6, 1977 The Daily Tar Heel S
Man 's best friend is fast becoming a spoiled species
By STEPHEN HARRIS
Have you noticed what well-dressed
dogs are wearing to campus lately? High
culture is making a comeback among
canines, as evidenced by the new
luxuries and services available to area
A look at unconventional pet services
in Chapel Hill and Durham shows that
"the dog's life" no longer means a nap in
the summer sun. It is an odd mixture of
high fashion, meticulous grooming and
Pet stores have become pet boutiques.
Pet kennels include luxuries people
cannot find in the choicest hotels. From
birth to death, pets can now have
anything their masters have.
A tour of the area pet stores reveals
the luxury available to our pets.
Customers, preferably human ones,
may buy; pet boots (rawhide or rubber),
toys of all shapes and colors (from chew
sticks to plastic newspapers), life
preservers, dishes (plastic or
aluminum), car seats (for front and back
seats), beds and even miniature indoor
This fall, the well-dressed pet will
want an abundant supply of coats (there
are UNC coats for Tar Heel canines?,
toboggans, nose warmers, rainsuits,
snowsuits, raincaps, sweaters, caps,
sunglasses, baseball caps, football
helmets and even a motorcycle helmet
complete with goggles.
t If your pet has a yearning to eat at the
table, perhaps a pet high chair would be
the thing for him. They're available in
And while your pet is dining in his
high chair, don't neglect to see that he is
eating right. There are several brands of
puppy formula available. However, if
your dog is a little older, you can have
peace of mind about your dog's
nutrition if you place before him some
vitamin enriched dog candy. Oh, he
can't have candy? Then some powdered
cottage cheese may be just the thing to
keep those extra pounds off.
After the meal, you may be glad that
you bought some pet-diarrhea
The time will come when your dog
will ask, "Why can't I have my fur done,
like all my friends?" Available in the
area are furcuts, clips, grooms, baths
and even a "flea dip" (all by
appointment only.) There is even a
choice of shampoos. And, after his bath,
every, dog wants some deodorant and a .
favorite colored grooming powder.. - i:

But Jarman knows of a lady that
makes cement fire hydrants, if you really
care for one.

be nice. The area grooming salons will

purposes and registered with the

Pets who wish to spend a vacation
away from their masters may go to Pet
Manor in Chapel Hill, where they may
rest in the kennel, or enjoy the fresh air
and sunshine in a lot out back.

comforted in the knowledge that his
interment will be dignified.
Pet Rest, a pet cemetery between
Durham and Raleigh, has about 400
filled plots, according to cemetery
manager Roy lsenhour. But the two
acres of the cemetery could hold as
many as 14,000-15.000 graves.
Pet Rest can give a pet a human-like
funeral, complete with funeral tent and
flowers. Elaborate caskets and
headstones are featured, though more
modest burials are available.
"It takes a certain type of person to
use our cemetery," lsenhour said. "On
the whole we get elderly people, but we
do get all classes and kinds of people."
One lady from Washington came to
Pet Rest once to bury her dog. When it
was discovered she couldn't plant two
cherry trees from her backyard next to
her pet, she left.
Another dog owner instructed that no
cats be buried next to his deceased dog.
The dog always hated cats.
Alone at the back of the cemetery is
the dog whose owner insisted he be
buried away from the others. His dog
always was a loner, the owner said.
"I've seen more tears here in two
years," lsenhour said, "than I've seen in .
fO years at the funerals of friends."
Outside of Pet Rest, though, burials

instance, it is illegal to bury a pet.
The Traingle Cremation Service of
Hillsborough, which began about four
years ago, had inquiries about
cremating pets almost since it opened.
Two years ago. pet cremations were
"People get more emotional over pets
than they would over a human," Tim
Mason of the Service said. The Service
hopes to expand its service by soliciting
veterinarians as well as the general
public. About 10 pets have been
cremated so far, according to Mason.
It seems that, from birth to death, pets
have never had it so good. A "dog's life"
is getting more and more popular. But it
is not the pets that arc changing; it is
their masters. For as our pets become
more humanized, so do we.
