The puppy

June 17th, 2013 at 11:19 am

I don't think that I have mentioned it on here, but the day before my birthday (back in April) I found a puppy in a ditch out where I live. It was cool and rainy and I knew if I left him, he would die. So we rescued him. My sister paid for him to go to the vet and for him to stay there a week. She also helped with the vet bills since the puppy had mange. Severe mange! So, instead of paying as much on our mortgage, I have had to take $50-$75 from it and put it towards this dog. And I also did some pet sitting to help pay. But now...I have 2 dogs to feed. 2 sets of vet bills. Double the treats. I don't regret saving him...but he has been expensive. Hopefully now that he is feeling better and the mange is gone, the vet bills will be REDUCED. He is 7 months old, so we will have to neuter him. So my husband and I are working on a way to pay for that. Should be about $200.

But I guess this is where I get confused. I can squeeze out money to pay for a special event or something that comes up. Why can't I just pretend I have a special event and put $200 towards a credit card and pay them off? Its not the lack of "want to." Ugh...I get so frustrated with myself.

    How sweet of you to take the puppy in! Do you want to adopt him out at some point or is he a keeper?

    Have you been recording every dollar you spend? Based on what you have written here, it doesn't seem like you would have that extra money...but maybe you do. It is likely getting spent somewhere, so the search is to figure out where. Once you realize what it is you have more knowledge to make change.

    Keep trying!!

    Bless your heart for helping him out! I know that $200 will come from somewhere!

    I've a rescue dog who gives more love and joy that words express. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for rescuing a pup left to die in a ditch. Does SPCA or any Rescue organization offer any help for rescues? Can you recoup any of your costs by selling a now healthy pup?
