I'm Not Fat, I Have Broad Shoulders
It's that time of year again for my annual Vet visit. There is nothing wrong with me, but I still hate going. I'll need my booster shots and full exam. The Dr. will probably comment on my weight (still 5.75 pounds) telling me that I need to lose a pound so there isn't too much stress on my knees. It will cost Linda around $250. Yikes, sorry I'm so expensive Linda. The average cost for dog ownership in 2010 was $1,425 a year. That is without all the extras like professional dog walking ($25 a visit)! I love my volunteer walkers and wouldn't want a stranger anyway. If you really wanted to splurge on us Linda, there is a private Dog Country Club two towns over. It has a swimming pond, an agility course, lighted play fields, and 2 separate small dog areas. The membership dues would be $275 per year and a $95 application fee. The Club also holds BBQ's, bonfires and if your looking for love: meetups! If that doesn't work, www.MatchPuppy.com is a social site where dogs can surf the net to find their perfect pal.
Then there is Chip Cat, who never steps a paw outside. In 14 years she has been to the vet exactly one time, to get her "girl surgery." Her cost of living is considerable cheaper than ours!
