things destroyed?  train your dogs -- then they won't ruin your shit.  i've had many dogs and they never destroyed anything.

yes, big dogs cost more to feed, that is about the only expense that will logically increase.

 Yes,I think so.My German Shepherd used to eat quite a bit when he was a bit younger and we went through big bags of dog food like once every 3-4 weeks(and good dog food,like Blue).And the toys he destroyed!(His toys,not kid toys or any of our stuff.he hardly EVER destoyed "people"stuff).I only buy him hard,cheap toys or rawhide bones.We had to stop buying him stuffed toys when he was 4 months old.In 2 minutes,there would be fluff every where! lol

They eat more and their flea medicine costs more but, other than that, It's not that much. Of course the boxer eats more. His stomach is bigger than the Chihuahua's entire body.

maybe food costs. I have a dobie and an English bulldog- corgi mix. both are 60lbs. Their food monthly is about $50-60 depending where I buy it. Vet bills aren't much, because they are healthy. toys we buy at dollar tree.

 Well obviously it's going to cost more in food alone. A bigger dog eats more food than a smaller one.
