wow you really shouldn't put things like that into perspective!!!!
OMG, I started reading these and I don't even want to think about it anymore. Lets just say they can cost A LOT. On the other hand my chi 250.00, plus shots and regular heart worm meds. Toys she doesn't much play with because she would rather rip of kleenex :( and that's about it. Oh the food, well the little bit she eats out of the huge bag for the bigger dogs I can't even measure. Almost nothing. I'm not even going to think about the other ones because next time my DH complains I will have a guilty look on my face. Thanks a lot Gunny, lol.
Way more than I thought I'd ever spend. Conformation shows alone we're into the $5k+ range easily. But we got a boat-load of pretty .29 cent ribbons. You can't put a price on the companionship and love they give you though.
Oscar(Great Dane)- $300 food a month- $36, year- $432 heartworm prevent yearly- $140 vet bills for regular stuff- $80 year toys- $40 year treats- $100 year bed(queen pillow top-my bed)- $1500 collars and leashes- $60
There is just way too much to list. But dogs are very expensive. And to think I want another.
It is $7 per trim, and i get them done twise a month.
I trimmed them myself until he got too big for me to handle. I don't even try anymore. last time I tried to trim them myself I had big scratches across my face, a bruise on my chin(from being head butted), and a very angry dog that ignored me the rest of the night. Plus to make it worse his nails are black! I just decided it was worth it to me to pay the $14 per month to not be a bad guy, and to not get my butt kicked.
well,lets just see,we only had the pups since october 18th 04 and so far....
two blue brindle american pit bull terriers $2000.00 ($1000.00 per dog) vet bills so far about $600.00 2 LIFE STAGE crates $250.00 dog food for the month $40.00 leashes,collars,bowls,toys $300.00 the NYLABONES they get $30.00 a week my living room sofa they ate thru and has not yet been replaced $600.00 my boxspring they also ate the corner of $200.00 the 6ft privacy fence around the yard $275.00 (it s nice to have friends in that line of work)
