I love my pet babies. But they have upkeep just as any other breathing being. I have to get my little dogs (Snowball’s) haircut every 3 months. The big lab (Snickers) needs his nails filed and his teeth brushed every 3 months as well (we brush his teeth more than that). They have to have their shots every year too. Having a pet is not an inexpensive journey. It’s a journey that may cost a lot or maybe just a little. There’s dog food, dog toys, kitty litter, kitty toys and dog or cat treats. Snowball is also on medicine to make keep his eyes clear and bacteria free. That’s $40 every 6 months too.
If you’re thinking of giving a gift of a pet to someone just make sure that they can afford them. They are not cheap. But they are a life long journey of love, affection, joy and enjoyment. We actually got Snowball so Snickers would have someone to hang out with and talk too. They are best buds. I love watching them play. I love it so much when Snowball curls up to just sleep on Snickers and absorb his warmth. They are so stinkin cute and sweet. Tell me your great dog tales! They are so worth it aren’t they?
