Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

thats what my cousins wife said today....im mean honestly they cant have a baby right now because they are low income, so they are buying dog?! shes been looking up coupons for dog food for 3 days now and have 20 printed out, she found coupons for dog beds and collers, and bowles.....i dont understand this at all if you cant afford a baby why buy a fucking dog because you have "baby fever"

Dogs are cheaper than babies. She sounds sensible to me.

I got a yorkie last fall when my youngest went to kindergarten!  I still get bursts of baby fever, but they have been much fewer since I got my puppy!

I can no longer have children and we are not quite ready to go ahead with our adoption plans as of yet, so for Valentine's Day 2011 my husband bought me a puppy. I totally have baby fever so he tried his best to alleviate some of that. We could afford the puppy of course and he was trying to be sweet. I love my little chihuahua baby....

Are you offended? lol. I don't get the point of why you're caring so much. A puppy is cheaper than another human.

thats different though, they have about $80 extra after bills and the nessecities for the month...

Dogs are expensive, so I can understand where you are coming from. Two of our dogs ended up needing emergency vet services this summer and it was almost 1000.00 for the visits (one had to stay overnight). It was still a bit steep for us, but we made it work (created a tight month). I don't think people realize what a dog costs for maintenance, vet visits, emergencies etc...they are almost as expensive as having a child!
