I see dog raw hides, how does dog food fit in? I never see it in your weekly booty.
And there's a story behind that.
My teenage son wanted a dog but we really didn't think we could afford it right now. So he came up with this great plan, complete with a written contract, budget, and income statement, that showed how he would get a job and earn the money to pay for the dog. He assured us that he would take full responsibility for all food, vet bills, training and poop-scooping (my husbands desire) and all vacuuming of dog hair (mine). He outlined the cost of adoption, vet bills, food and toys and we said to ourselves, "Yeah, well if he can actually come up with that kind of money THEN we'll let him get a dog. " (Insert evil laughter here.) I was sure my carpets would remain dog-hair free.
But that boy of mine went knocking on neighbors doors and racked up two weekly lawn mowing jobs. Then he called grandparents and spread bark dust, mowed, weeded and did all sorts of manual labor. And in a matter of two months the kid raised $500 dollars.
We, uh, adopted a dog at that point.
So....all that to say....we don't buy the dog food. My hard working son paid the adoption fee, paid the vet bills, buys premium dog food (to avoid any vet visits) and yes, even scoops the poop.
My penance is buying treats for the dog to make me feel better for my unbelief.
