No date has been set for the wedding. By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) Oh, to live a dog's life. A day in the life of a pampered pooch includes catnapping- well, maybe earning his keep as a watchdog, "forcing" his master to play with him in the evening, then gobbling up gourmet vittles and finally curling into a softly lined wicker bed, in an air-conditioned house, natch. Neither coon hounds lazily scratching fleas , Pekineses with baby blue ribbons in their hair, nor Irish setters who disgrace their owners by flunking out of obedience schools are ' even mildly aware thai Americans spend three billion dollars a year on their pets. And what are they buying? Well, dogs have sunglasses for trips in the car, cats have their own private bathrooms, parakeets have bath tubs with mirrors and every pet can feast on a veritable smorgasbord of food. At last count, over 240 pet varieties were available at one local supermarket. One poodle around town dines on doggy cheeseburgers laced with chunky cuts, and polishes that off with several "cookies," which look suspiciously like hot dogs. But even the coon hound is about to have his day. One company, which must have a soft spot in its corporate heart for all those huge dogs existing on dry food, has now introduced a can of meat chunks, designed to be mixed with the biscuits to produce a rich, hearty gravy. Miss Theresa Bushey t.i> li 1 I Reside in Macomb Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth A. Johnson, who were married July 7 at Roseville Methodist Church, will reside in Macomb, where he is a senior at Western Illinois University. The bride, the former Cynthia L.

Paral, worthy grand matron, Order of Eastern Star of Illinois, and the official, family. Members are being asked to make reservations for the 6:30 p.m. dinner. TTNKHAM REUNION The 53rd annual Tinkham reunion will be at the south shelter house in Monmouth Park, Sunday, July 29, at 6:30 p.m. If it is anything like the company's recent new cat food it will be a howling success. The semi-moist food met with instant approval, but the manufacturer was unprepared to meet the big demand. Consequently, theV had to completely pull it off the shelf, build more plants, then reintroduce it. Actually, though, pet food represents a good value for the shoppers, since it is a highly competitive field. Sales Increase However, pet food has increased right along with spiraling prices for chicken and hamburger. One supermarket manager said that large sacks of dry dog food have increased in price by 25% in the past year. This doesn't deter pet Winners on the Fairway BUNKER LINKS Women golfers played for low net and low putts at Bunker Links on Thursday when Mrs, Betty Rowe and Mrs. Ava Buckmaster were hostesses. Championship flight, for low net was a three-way tie, Mrs Mcrris Patty, Mrs. Morris Chapman, Mrs. Jo Long, low putts, two-way tie, Mrs. Ray Conkright, Mrs. Jo Long; A Flight, low net, Miss Gail Hannam, low putts, Mrs. Rowe; B Flight, low net, Mrs. Brian Smiley, low putts, three-way tie, Mrs. Herbert Jespersen, Mrs. Thomas Bilgenberg, Mrs. Walter Landon; C Flight, low net and low putts, Mrs. Donald Wade, and D Flight, \ow net and low putts, Mrs. Diane Elder. Mrs. Neil Strandberg had a chip-in on No. 8, and Mrs. Elder on No. 7. Ladies day will be Friday rather than Thursday next week, with hostesses being Mrs. Albert Nelson and Mrs. Ray Walters. owners, though, from buying their animals their favorite goodies. In fact, sales of pet food have increased threefold in the past ten years. And at one local supermarket surveyed the dollar volume of pot food exceeds that of baby food. It's imperative for the managers to keep the pet shelves well-stocked, too. Pet owners get very vocal and upset if their kitten's favorite brand is out, and are concerned that Mouser will go hungry that evening. The pet food industry, never, one to get out of touch with the times, knows that the number one consumer interest today is good nutrition. Natur­ ally, the discriminating pet owner looks for the brands labeled "high protein," "complete nutrition," "balanced diet," and "contains only natural ingredients." One tempting sounding cat food contains a "natural" blend of fish, meat and milk, but, ah, modern science, it's all compressed into orunchy dry food. Other cat foods were named Country Chicken, sounds like it came from a take-out restaurant, and Ocean' Fish. Wonder if a oat can tell the difference between freshwater and saltwater fish? Braised liver with gravy, beef stew with vegetables, and ba- can and kidneys are not in the "people" department, but the dog aisle. The most famous dogs of all, Lassie and Snoopy, endorse canned food, and to serve it in, there's a Snoopy dish which asks the question, "What do you do with the used tea bag?" For midnight raids to the dog dish, there's imported gourmet biscuits, or a nice piece of rawhide, shaped into a house slipper or bone, whatever turns Fido on. One company, noticing how much people love animal crackers, turned the tables and came out with People Crackers for dogs, which atfc shaped like mailmen, burglars and other delectables for Sir Canine. Another dog biscuit comes in six flavors, milk, chicken, liver, beef, cheese and eggs. Would You Believe! The three companies which dominate the pet accessory business have met success by introducing products which really appeal to owners— maybe more so than the pets. For walks when it's raining, there's raincoats and rubber booties, warm sweaters and coats for chilly days, and a dazzling assortment of rhinestone studded collars. Then, not to be outdone, one company has introduced choc 1 - olate-scented cartoon character toys, Edgar Allen Crow, Scooby Doo, Hair Bear, Auto- oat, Boo, among others. There must be something about toys though that don't particularly impress cats. So, in order to convince the owners that this is money well spent, rubber chunks of cheese and other toys are sprayed with a "cat attracting scent. Catnip remains every feline's favorite, and his master or mistress can purchase it plain to make individual kitty toys, or buy felt mice filled with leaves of the aromatic plant. With the pet population literally exploding, and people's pet budgets along with it, it isn't any wonder that some taxpayers have even tried to write their pets off on their income tax. But even if an owner doesn't lavish gold lame pajamas, mink eyelashes, perfume or toenail polish on his pet, he still spends a bundle on Fido. Everyone with an eye on the dollar sign lias watched the developing trends and jumped in. Even a trading stamp company which 10 years ago didn't have one pet item in their catalog, now offers 18. With cookbooks available on every conceivable subject, it was only a question of time until one for pets and their owners was published. Entitled "Wee Paws in the Kitchen," it offers such hound- ipleasing dishes as German Shepherd Pie, Pekingese Duck, Poodle Strudle and Doberman Dumplings. The wthole idea is, that a dog owner who lives alone can cook for "one and a half," and bath have delicious fare.

Part of the problem in our affluent society for pet owners is that more and more people are traveling now, and what do you do with Rover when you go on vacation. Well, if you live near Chicago, you can check him into his own "resort," an air-conditioned pet motel which recently opened. Each pet will have his own room, with scaled-down bed and mattress, a limousine for pick-up and delivery, strictly first class. For visting in other people's home, you can take along an Indoor Comfort Station," with disposable grass mats for dogs. And if your pet is small, then get a pet caddy designed like a sling that hangs from a shoulder strap. Pets need food, but fussy owners will also want to keep their pets well-groomed: After clipping your . poodle and brushing his tail, keep it in place with "Fluff" hair spray . Give him his vitamin tablets every day, keep his coat conditioned, and for that inevitable bath, shampoo comes in a No-Tears Version for dogs. Not everyone shares the same ideas as to what makes up a dog's life, or a description of a contented kitty. Snake and Motor Sam, tomcats from the same litter, are a little like Country Mouse and City Mouse, who found that they had two different lifestyles and couldn't adapt to the other's. Snake, the city cat. is perfectly content to loll around his master's apartment all day, snarf down a couple of cans of chopped sardines, and get his exercise fighting other cats in the alley. Motor Sam, on the other hand, is master of a large farm, and is a skilled hunter. He even caught a rabbit the other day, almost bigger than he was. Sam, who acquired his name because of his loud purring, is a satisfied cat whose master doesn't have to spend an arm and a leg keeping him that way. Despite cats like Motor Sam who have to work for their supper, most pets lead a pretty soft life. Whatever the formula for the pet industry's success, it's working. But even in this age of mechanization, they have yet to invent tho luxury that would make Fifi and Fluffy the happiest, an automatic behind-the-ears scratcher.
