Munchhausen's Syndrome by Proxy?

My step son and wife have two French Bulldogs , both noisy breathers , one having to have an operation to open up nares as a one year old . They are treated like babies , pampered to the point of obscenity , breaks my heart as I know they will be facing massive health problems in the future due to their non existing tails and severe skeletal frame issues , and yet they continue to churn them out due to demand , sad x
There is a fair bit of disagreement over whether Munchhausen’s actually exists.... It’s called Factitious Disorder now anyhow. And the ‘proxy’ version is Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another.

But, yeah, the obsession with the weird exaggerated features and the dependence it creates is bad whatever you call it.
