It's a Dog Eat Dog World

Or something like that... Our dog, Duchess, recently had two trips to the vet- one to get her shots, the other to be spayed. NOT CHEAP. ($600)

In the meantime, she has some irritation on her neck, which I think started from the electric collar. Well, when I took her in for her surgery, they shaved it, stating it was a hot spot (I thought it was too early for a hot spot, but whatever).

So now, in it's pristine no-hair state, she can scratch it BLOODY. Great. So, we're off to the vet again. I'm hoping for some steroids. More $$. AND- it get's even better, since she can't wear the collar right now, and who knows when she'll be able to, we may have to buy a pen. EVEN MORE $$. Arrrrrrrrrrrgh.

Somebody remind me that I love this dog, and so do the kids- even with the d@mn dog hair everywhere. And the holes in the yard.

Help me. xoxo Lee

That is one gorgeous dog and it really is not her fault the vets make everything so dang pricey!
