A dog-loving woman has revealed she spends £15,000-per-year raising her six British bulldogs like children - with their own wardrobes, organic diets and beauty regimes.
Karen Chamberlain, 49, and partner Peter Dowling, 48, have christened their six bulldogs 'fur kids' and feed them only organic food with daily vitamin supplements.
The dog-mad pair dress their bulldogs, who each have their own wardrobes, in skirts, hats, tiaras and angel wings, and take them out for walks on matching pink leads.
Lady Lola, eight, Princess Tia, six, Baby Gracie, three, and one-year-old pups Angel Star, Scarlet Sky and Lil Belle also use special canine shampoo and beauty products daily.
The pack cost Karen and Peter over £1,225 a month, which equates to a staggering £14,700 a year.
But Karen, the dogs' full-time carer, insists treating the pack like children is 'normal' despite revealing plans to move to a bigger house to cope with more puppies.
She said: 'Every spare penny goes on the dogs. They are my fur kids. This is our family and normal life for us.'
Karen and painter and decorator Peter, from Kennington, Kent, got their first bulldog in 2000 and their pack has increased ever since.
They care for their bulldogs like children and give them unusual treats such as organic biscuits, fresh honey and goats milk, and parsley to cure bad breath.
Karen gives the dogs salmon oil or omega oil every day, multi-vitamins every three days and cod liver oil every week to keep their coats shiny.
The dogs also have their own bedroom, which is filled with tailor-made outfits and accessories sourced from special designer canine shops and baby stores.
The couple spend £200 a month on organic meat and fresh organic vegetables to make the dogs' food as well as £200 on vitamins and supplements.
They shell out £100 a month on grooming products, £75 on clothes and tiaras and £200 on dog insurance.
The remaining money, totalling £1,225 a month, is spent on toys, blankets, treats, baby wipes, dog sitters and expensive vet bills and insurance.
Karen shows her pack at Crufts dog show every year and they have featured in calendars and on cards dressed up in their special outfits.
She added: 'I had two bulldogs, but when I met Pete we kept egging each other on and got more and more.
'It is so hard to give away puppies after we have bred them.
Peter added: 'They've got a lovely temperament but they're a bit like a bulldog in a china shop. They will have everything over.
'Hopefully we're going to breed some more but we need to get a bigger place.'
