Spoiled Rotten-That's what some pets have been during the recession.

According to the American Pet Products Association, people nationwide will spend more than 50 billion dollars on their animals this year.

Spending in the pet economy has increased every year since 2001.

And pet ownership is at an all-time high of 72.9 households.

That's about two out of every three households.
