Let's face it, most of us go to great lengths to keeps our pets happy. A recent survey shows that a pretty significant amount of people admit  to celebrating different events for their animals. 22% of the people surveyed have thrown a birthday party for their pets- most of them dog owners and 17% have spent at least $50 for the party. They also found that 16% have held a funeral after fido or fluffy bit the bullet. 

In general, about 6% of people spend at least $200 a month and 37% over $50 per month on pets.
