|Of course we're not spoiled|
Mom says it’s a god thing that DixieLee and I are cute ‘cuz we are very expensive to keep. I never thought about how much it costs to have a pet.
I knew that pure breds and designer dogs cost lots to get but peoples have to give money to shelters if they want to get a good dog like me.
DixieLee was a stray that ended up at a friend’s house so we didn’t have to pay to get her but we had to pay to have her spayed, micro chipped and get all her shots.
This month we had our annual vet checks and had to get our town licenses. I was sick and had to go to the vet again. Tests, medicines, special food, all cost too.
Food, now there’s something we need lots of and don’t forget the cookies. We order huge bags of food and a super big box of cookies that get delivered right to our house. Mom says that’s because we are spoiled.
Toys are important too. We need lots of toys. And other stuff like collars, leashes, halters, bowls, crates, a fenced-in yard. Those all cost money. I didn’t realize I had so much stuff!
I bet you have lots of stuff ‘cuz you’re spoiled too.
We can’t go out to work like Mom does but we work very hard all the same. It’s our job to make sure Dad knows when the mail person comes or when a big truck drives by our house. We keep the squirrels from getting close to the house and we watch over the birds while they are eating out of the feeder.
Those are all really important jobs but we have other jobs. Our most important job is make sure our Mom and Dad have lots of kisses and cuddles.
Mom says we are expensive to keep but that we are worth every penny.
Time to go back to work. Another important job is napping on the sofa so that no one can steal it. DixieLee has done her shift, now it's my turn.
