Million Dollar Baby

I just spent another $300+ I don't really have laying around. On what? You should be asking WHO:



Specifically, the one in the background of the photo looking all innocent. Vet appointment. Some x-rays, urinalysis, a culture, and some medication later (medication that we already have, but H doesn't know any better, and I was stuck slaving for the man) and $300 lighter, she's going to be fine. She's not the only one, that little brat in the front had an allergic reaction on Saturday, so we were literally just there a few days ago dropping $80+ on him. Not to mention the $250 we dropped in August on their annual checkup. I can't possibly have two dogs that are fine with vaccine clinics. Nope. One is so old we don't give her vaccines anymore, we have her blood checked for antibodies. And the youngster has vaccine reactions, so he needs to be pretreated. And to add insult to injury, the older one had Pancreatitis at the beginning of summer. That was a cool $1300.

H better get a job soon or these dogs are going to put us in the even-poorer-house.

  4. I'm sorry. I know that you know though, that the money you spend on them, no matter how much of a sacrifice it is, is a drop in the bucket compared to the years of happiness that they have and will give you.
