$631.61 is how much we spent on Rusty in the month of May. I just finished the May budget and that's such a crazy amount for a stinkin' pet that I had to share. Anyone want a dog? haha.
I can't remember all the details at this point, but basically it's been a month of unmentionable bodily functions which we had to purchase a mini carpet cleaner for. Several trips to the vet, many tests, x-rays, etc and medicines... and get this: we never figured out what was wrong. Matt's positive it's his food, which is the same food he's been on for ages. I'm not terribly convinced, but we don't have another answer so we'll go with that for now. Maybe in a few weeks we'll introduce it again. Maybe then he'll keep it down. *fingers crossed* So- yeah. All month long I've been making him "dog food" of rice, chicken broth, cottage cheese, oats, boiled defatted beef, etc. It's been a joy, let me tell you. (can you hear the sarcasm?) Poor baby, though. The first couple weeks of May he was so weak, shaking, in pain... it's hard to be mad at an animal when they're so helpless. Even if they do cost you your entire paycheck. *sigh*
