Glad I paid $650 for Cobain! Feel like a dodged a bullet on that one

Oz was $295 (I think?, nearly 11 years ago now). Hunting kennel. No papers.

Rigby was $250, came spayed, shots, and all that stuff. ~ Fun fact, she's effectively "paid herself off" as I managed to get a few really good shots of her that won a couple contests

Ruby was free.

Gavroche was "free" and came neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and with a nearly full bag of food. He's cost...a lot...in vet bills.

Logan was $800 but when you factor in traveling and everything it was easily $1600. His broken premolar was caused by a free antler (but his dental was cheaper than Gavroche's UTI antibiotics...8 weeks of Baytril is NOT CHEAP.)

My parents are paying $850 for their new GSD puppy with limited registration.

I think most people assume Squash was free, but he cost me seventy-five whole dollars. Plus gas from here to Ohio and back.

Lots of people ask how much my dogs cost me as well. And often in the Dobermans' case they then proceed to tell me where I could have gotten a better deal haha. Yeah, no.

Pretty much all non-dog people think it's nuts that I flew home with Journey too. Actually, even a lot of dog people think it's weird lol. Oh well. More than worth it to me!

I guess Juno is actually the only dog I paid for lol. Lucy I ended up getting my money back for because she was diagnosed with luxating patellas and legg-perthes disease within the timeframe of her health guarantee (take that, crappy breeder!), so essentially she was "free". And according to Happy's paperwork, her adoption fee should have been $175, but for some reason they waived it for me.

I don't really look at the price of the dog, I look at what I'm getting, and if everything sounds great and wonderful then I'm willing to fork over some dough for that. Maybe that makes me crazy lol.

I looooove how this Mal looks, and wish I knew where it came from (it was on some google search I did long ago). Pretty pretty. Anyone happen to know what dog it is?

My legs have been falling asleep like mad, and today when I got up to go to another room I about fell over. Called Roxie to me, and had to use her (even though she's 40lbs and only medium sized- barely reaching my knees [I am really short]) to get to a place I could sit down.

She's really quite the champ about things like that. I swear, something happens every day where her easy temperament shocks me. She is such a complete polar opposite to Buddy. I didn't think I would ever find a dog like Roxie... I got so, so lucky.

Also, Buddy was $25 from a BYB (I was ten when we got her), Roxie was like $100 adopted.

This is exactly how I feel about Indy. She's so non assuming, she doesn't bat an eye at any crazy thing I ask of her. She will help me up if I fall down, or over. I have been putting some serious muscle on her and her topline dip is gone, so I've been using her to brace a bit more than I normally would have, just because I need her to do it more now.

I've seriously fallen flat on my face in the house because of various reasons, and if I can't get up on my own (dizzyness, legs asleep, whatever) I can call her to me (of course, all the dogs come running when I call any of them) and she will pull me up with me holding her front, or if I can get into a squatting position, she'll brace herself and allow me to lean on her until my head quits spinning. Then she'll take me to the bed or couch or a chair.

I <3 my dog lol, basically.

Aw, what a sweet dog

I've passed out a few times (sometimes in public, too ) and Rox will just be all calm, standing there till I come 'round and then help me back up.

Watson almost got attacked by a 100lb bouvier at agility last night. Ugh. The dog seems friendly with the other dogs in the class, but apparently decided that Watson was not ok. While he was off leash, he charged up to Watson. At first I just thought he wanted to sniff or maybe play, but then the sniffing got sort of aggressive, with circling and growling. He must have put his teeth on Watson's neck/shoulder because it was wet there. Watson went so far as to bark/growl at the other dog (after this went on for at least a minute or two), which I've never seen him do.

The worst part is the owner was saying "Just grab his collar" to me like it was no big deal. First, I couldn't even see a collar in all that fur. Second, how am I supposed to hold off your increasingly aggressive 100lb dog with one hand? Come and get him! When she made it over, she spent at least a minute or two trying to get him under control as she'd grab him and he would break free and come back. He's well trained in agility, but she has no control over him otherwise. I ended up picking Watson up (mostly) and just spinning to keep myself between him and the other dog.

I'm not sure if it was because Watson was new to the class, because he's intact, or because he returned eye contact briefly. Watson thinks eye contact is an invitation to play, but the bouv obviously took it as a challenge. Now I'm going to have to keep an eye out for that dog, because I don't trust that she can control him even on leash.
