My Dogs Ate My Paycheck

The obedience champions I grew up with never ate my homework.

Neither have the dogs of my adulthood – even during the year I took Spanish classes at a local community college and really did have homework.

However, my dogs do take a bite out of my bank account all the time.

Usually, they tear off their fair share for food, treats and maintenance medicine. Sometimes, unexpected health needs require a bigger bite of the budget.

Other times – like this past weekend – the dogs don’t really make me spend the money at all. But I still blame them.

The consumer pet industry loves him as much as I do.

I blame their muddy little feet from which I have to protect my car and home.

The brand name Pet Rebellion seems so apt.

The last car hammock I bought only lasted a month. This one seems tougher, and it has pockets for leashes and water bottles and bones.

And I blame their very dogness for being so awesome I can’t help but celebrate it through the purchase of items created in their likeness.

Well, we do need kitchen deco (and a dog to serve the coffee).

How could I not buy this?

Grand total for non-essential yet nice-to-have dog-related items purchased over the weekend: Approximately $80.

Ouch. It hurts!

But I can’t help it. It’s their fault!

What kind of purchases do you make because of your dog love?
