Mariah Carey is set to splash out £100,000 ($168,000) to charter a private jet to fly her eight dogs to the UK for a holiday and a further £15,000 ($25,000) on a lavish stay at a luxury dog hotel The Paws Seasons in Bristol, South West England.
Mariah’s dogs, who are imaginatively named The Good Reverend Pow Jackson, Mutley P. Gore Jackson The Third, Jill E. Beans, Pipitty Jackson, Cha Cha, Jackie Lambchops, J.J. and Squeak E. Beans, will be treated to various luxuries, including personalised meals cooked by a chef and their own hotel beds during their stay.
An insider said: ”They’ll be washed, groomed, taken on day trips, sleep in their own hotel beds and the chef will cook them personalised meals, according to a menu plan Mariah’s sending over.
”She’s even spending £100,000 to charter a private jet to the UK for their luxury break.”
The dog hotel usually charges owners around £60 ($101) a day but they were more than happy to order in some extra organic steaks to suit Mariah’s pooches’ expensive needs.
The Paw Seasons told heat magazine: ”Most of our guests arrive with a good supply of their usual food, but if [clients] want us to order in a couple of juicy organic steaks, we’ll organise it.”
Mariah’s big spend on her canine vacation is unlikely to come as a surprise to her pooches as it was recently revealed the singer – who has three-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with husband Nick Cannon – splashes out £28,000 ($47,000) a year getting her dogs groomed.
The star – who is worth around £290 million – pays for her pooches to have special animal treatments to ensure her four-legged friends are always looking their best.
A source said at the time: ”Mariah pays for all the spa therapies herself and doesn’t expect any special treatment. Only her dogs get that.”
