I feel you.  Our pup had some bad back problems and with several visits to the vet including an ER visit right before we moved across country last month it was not well timed. I call her “my new couch” since I wont be getting one for awhile now 🙂 

But worth every penny.

And I think you should get an eye patch just for the pics!

@bleusteel:  Aww poor puppy (and wallet!) but I think I might put pants on my dog just for fun now because that is hilarious haha.

Oh yes! My furbaby jumped off the bed one night and broke his foot. We had to drain our Honeymoon fund to pay for all the vet bills 🙁

It sucks that your dog racked up those vet bills, but I’m pretty sure the pants picture makes it all worth it in the end; eye patch pirate pictures would just be icing on the cake.

I have 5 pets total, so somebody always needs something from the vet.  

Gabi sure looks cute with those pants on, though.

@bleusteel:  it was about half of it and about 3 months before our first deposit was due. Doggy xrays are not cheap. We had a lovely honeymoon. Just did it a little cheaper 🙂

@bleusteel:  ohhhhh yeah, my dog has impeccable timing…emergency hospitalization for a mysterious GI issue the day before I was supposed to leave on a business trip to Japan…and then again almost exactly a year later the night before a weekend trip to visit family…necessitating medical boarding instead of regular ($$$$$$) both times.  On a smaller scale, he also helped himself to six chocolate chip cookies and a brownie on the afternoon of my first planned happy hour in, like, a year.  Fortunately he was fine, but still…I guess it’s nice he doesn’t want me to be gone, but there have to be cheaper/less stressful ways of communicating that!

P.S. Love the yoga pants 😉

Oooh, they always pick the most inconvenient times 🙁

Hope your baby stays out of trouble for you, for a little while at least!!

Have you looked into pet health insurance? It’s pretty affordable, and keeps those surprise events from taking your budget off the rail. For dogs, it’s especially nice, since they spend so much time outside and interacting with other dogs – opens up a lot of opportunity for trouble!
