Surveys are coming out right and left these days, as retailers try to find out exactly what people will buy when they really shouldn't be buying anything at all.

Here are more "sacrifices" respondents were ready to give up for their dogs:
Here are some dog lovers really going all out for the welfare of their dogs:
