Year of the Dog

On January 29, 2006 is the end of the Year of Rooster (end of my year ::sniffs::), but it embarks on the new year of the Dog!

Speaking of dogs, one coworker asked me for my advice on getting a dog, especially the costs. I found this website which talks about costs of owning a dog

Costs of owning a dog

I want to make it clear to anyone who is considering getting a dog - it is going to put a dent on your budget if you do not plan for it properly. Since I started keeping track how much I am spending on my dog since July, I have paid $1482.07. Yup. That is alot. The article is not joking. I get upset if a person is considering getting a dog but his/her financial situation is not wonderful. It will put the strain on the dog's relationship.

The experience of owning a dog is priceless to me, despite the dent Socks is putting into my budget. Take your time before adopting/buying one. It is not a toy that you can discard; it is a companion of lifetime.
