A US dog lover bought her pampered French Poodle its own bathroom complete with a specially commissioned￡500 painting.
The dog, named Pierre Deux, lives in an Indianapolis apartment with owners Ilia and James Macdonald. His toilet lid is wrapped in aqua chiffon with a purple feather boa border and the room is decorated with flower petals and a picture of Pierre's girlfriend, Gigi. He relieves himself on disposable nappies left on the floor.
"He's my baby, so he deserves the best," she told the Indianapolis Star. "My mother jokes that she wants to come back reincarnated as Pierre. There's no better life." The bathroom was the work of interior designer Lisa Fitzwater, she said: "It's kind of cool when you have a client who's creative and adventurous. I've done a hundred black and brown rooms. This was a lot more fun."
She commissioned artist Heather Cuthbert-Lutgring to create the painting which features a note, supposedly written by Pierre, saying he'd gone to Paris with his girlfriend but would be back by midnight.
