I love my dog. He’s a spoiled brat and the little king of the house, but even so, I’d never spend hundreds on his Birthday bash, let alone thousands of dollars.
I could see maybe spending 16 bucks if I was feeling exceptionally zany, but in truth, I’ve never had a Birthday party for my dog, and I think I’d like to keep it that way.
But this woman I am about to tell you about doesn’t feel the same way. She decided to give her dog an elaborate Birthday bash that cost $16 thousand dollars.
Yes, I said 16 thousand.
The New York Post reported that a Chinese woman dropped almost $16,000 on drones to celebrate her dog’s birthday with an elaborate aerial display — but authorities have a bone to pick with her for the stunt.
The woman, who has not been identified, rented 520 of the flying machines to form the message “Happy 10th birthday to Doudou” in the sky over the Xiangjiang River in Changsha, the South China Morning Post reported.
The drones then flew in formations that formed patterns of a birthday cake as the pet lover and her friends serenaded Doudou with a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
This is what her 16K bought her…I’d ask for a refund.
The woman apparently chose the number 520 on purpose because its Mandarin pronunciation sounds similar to the phrase, “I love you,” according to the news outlet.
She shelled out 100,000 yuan – about $15,700 – to rent them.
For 16K you’d think the party would look a lot more lavish… honestly, I think the dog would have preferred a $30 dollar Filet Mingon.
The pooch’s celebration didn’t go over too well with authorities, who said they’d have shot down the drones because they violated the no-fly zones amid the nearby high-rises.
She neglected to get permission to fly her drones… she’ll probably end up in the gulag for 20 years.
