Earlier this month our Rhodesian Ridgeback, Major — that’s him there in the picture — celebrated his 8th birthday. Over that time, we’ve spent a little over $6500 on him — not counting the $1500 the Honeybee and I paid for him way back in 2003. We’ve spent roughly $1500 on his food and another $900 on boarding; the rest has paid for Major’s vet bills, grooming, and license fees to keep the dog catcher at bay.
The bottom line: That may seem like a lot of cash, but there are some things money just can’t buy. The unconditional love and unwavering loyalty of a good dog is certainly one of them.
