Heavy Petting
Produced by: Gemma Hooley
Americans will do anything for their pets -- from cemetaries to beauty salons to day camp. There are tv and radio shows aimed at pets, cooking shows for pet food, and pet therapists. There's no fluff here...pets are big business and very important to people. Producer Gemma Hooley explores the psychology behind this singularly American phenomenon.
