but, I have been sorta busy. Last week, took Archie in on Monday for teeth cleaning, she pulled four.....$455. Next day, took Elijah, my 29lb cat, in for teeth cleaning 'cause he also had the zacklies. (Don't know what the zacklies are, do you.) His mouth smelled zackly like his butt. Anyhow, he had one rotten tooth, which is why he lost 4lbs and his breath stank. She cleaned his teeth and pulled the rotten one.....$430. This past Monday, took Coco and Daisy for their shots and check up.....$125. Can't believe I've had these dogs two years. All is well with them except they've both gained a couple of pounds. I had switched them to Blue Buffalo and come to find out, it has a higher fat content. It is good food and so is Versus, so, I switched them back. We'll see in a couple of months. Later, on Monday, took Archie for his bath and hair cut.....$50. Then it turned freaking cold, now he wears a sweater 'cause Dad is worried he's going to get pneumonia. Yesterday, took MoMo for his shots and check up, Dad's cat, he paid.....$108. My vet is going to be building a hospital up the road from her current one. This is a good story.............She is the oldest of three children, with two younger brothers. About 10 years younger than me. Neat lady. Her family is heavy into farming, always has been. She currently lives on the farm her paternal grandparents had, but, it belongs to her brother. But, he and his wife and children live in a tenet house on his wife's parents farm. Her other brother and his wife and kids live in another tenet house, but have the rights to his parents farm. Now, you might think my vet is out in the cold, not a chance. She inherited a beautiful, Victorian brick house from her eccentric cousin, many years ago. He never took care of anything, even tho he had the money. The house got so bad, he lived in his car. Anyhow, she told me a few years back she'll have $500,000.00 in the place by the time she is done. She put her hospital in the basement, she plans on ripping all of that out, living in the house after building the hospital up the road. I asked her yesterday if she was putting in a 'Sharon' wing. She laughed. These animals are my responsibility and I will take care of them. Even if I can't afford to buy food for me.
Raining today, and, I guess tomorrow and Saturday too. Archie won't be going to breakfast on Friday if this keeps up. Poor guy, I haven't told him yet. Gotta go, scraped up enough cash to go to the grocery store.
Any more, it seems that that Vet bills are more than doctor bills. Our three dogs seem to be doing very well eating the dog food that my wife cooks for them based on ground turkey. It also has vegetables and a small perecnt of pasta. Some times I believe they eat better than I do.
Whatcha gonna do? Gotta take care of the babies!
