Singing sensation Adele has reportedly been splashing the cash on her pet dachshund Louie while away in the US, with sources close to the star saying she simply couldn't bear to be away from her beloved canine friend.
During her six-week spell across the pond, Adele picked up an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for her theme song to the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, although the Daily Star reports that rather than lapping up the celebrity lifestyle, the star spent the majority of her trip in LA's pet stores buying new accessories for Louie.
"Adele spent hundreds on Louie, buying new clothes, collars, coats and scarves for him to wear in London", said a friend of the singer.
While we'd all love to spoil and pamper our pets, it's important to remember the basics first. So before you go splashing out on clothes and accessories for your dog, make sure you've got all the essentials such as pet food and medication covered.
