Spoiled dog? A teenager's opinion

I recently went to the movies with a 14 year old friend. She was speachless while she watched me move Marley's things from the front seat to the trunk. This included Marley's mat (keeps my seats clean), towel, dog park bag (which includes some balls, poop bags and a leash), a ball, bowl and water bottle.

She said, "Marley is soo SPOILED!"

I gasped in horror, "No She Isn't" I had to take a deep breath and calm myself, "Marley just gets anything she wants"

Huge eye roll from a teenager, "She gets anything she wants...and she's not spoiled"

I'm slightly defensive at this point, "Well, she is such a good girl...most of the time"

Because I wanted to avoid another eye roll I quickly changed the topic. It made me think, at which point is a dog considered spoiled?

I don't think dogs are spoiled by things. The things you have in your car are standard dog gear, as far as I'm concerned. No different than someone with a baby or small child with toys, books, bag of diapers, wipes, etc.

Children that are considered spoiled are usually self-centered, bratty, inconsiderate, demanding, etc. So, if Marley is any of those, maybe you have an issue. :)
