Pet Tip

Dogs – Cats and Budgeting – Pet tip 242

Times are tough and many of us have less money coming in (income) but still have the same costs. This leaves most people with very little extra money to just ‘throw away’. This may cause some pet owners to become worried about how to provide for the health and well-being of their pets.

In this article we will try to help you structure your pet-related spending in a way that will keep both you and your pet in good shape. We will start by addressing the essential costs involved with keeping your pet healthy. Then we will mention some options that may help you afford these essential costs. Finally, we will look at what pet-related spending we can consider a luxury (non-essential).

The most important thing you can provide for your pet is health. Budgeting for an annual check-up and vaccinations is absolutely necessary.

Today will mark a week that we had to say goodbye...

That morning you looked at me and told me that you had had enough. I could see the pain in your eyes, the hurt it gave is still here. We miss you terribly our little boy. We know that we did everything that we could - we provided you with the best of life, but it was you that provided us with such joy, unconditional love, endless laughs and smiles - we were the lucky ones. You blessed us with your grace and presence.

The time has flown by since you came into our lives - our days now go slow. I look for you in places I remember - only to not see you there. I call your name - only to hear silence. You are part of our everyday. We miss you so much. Our home has become quiet and empty - our heart aches for you Burton.

Walks will never be the same not seeing you bounce and leap along. Swimming will not be the same not hearing you splash and play. Who will help me plant the gardens and sniff the flowers? Long drives will be endless not seeing you in the back seat, head out window, wind blowing through your ageless face. These will form our many wonderful memories.

We know that you are in a new place - take care and wait for us there. Watch over us, remember us. We will never forget you our little angel. Know that we loved you unconditionally and we know that you depended on us and never judged us - our best friend.

March 13, 2007 will live on as our longest and saddest day - we look forward to meeting you again. As I told you as I watched your gaze saying goodbye and your spirit leaving this world - friends til the end, friends til the end, friends til the end...

Peace, pride and love always our Burton.

Rob & Allan
