Cat Torrejon Nisbet, the owner of her goldendoodle Jagger, didn't give him the usual rawhide bone to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Jagger's successful spinal surgery. She paid $15 instead for a rose-shaped, light pink dog pastry with antelope hearts from Dogue in San Francisco.
"They won't love you more because you gave them a fancy snack," said Ms. Torrejon Nisbet, 50. She lives in Santa Barbara with Jagger, his sister Sierra, and their Bernedoodle brother, Jagger. "It is more about our love for our dogs."
