    DefaultWhat is the most extreme thing you have done for your Furkid!

    I am bruised, sore, bug bitten, sun burned and exhausted.* I live on 2 acres here in Ohio and since I want the best for my furkid just spent the last 5 days putting up a 400 foot fence for her.* Darla is turning 2 this July 15 (closest I can figure) and figured it would be a good bday present to be off leash on home turf.* She will also be getting a steak dinner but in a way it was kind of sad letting her off leash in her own backyard.* Feels like she is growing up.

    Whats the most extreme you have done for your furkids?

    Got her split air conditioning units in each room of the house.
    Also, her fence.

    The new truck was an extended cab, the back seat was for our lab.

    Gave up trip to Aruba (friends condo) when Molly was just home a week...didn't want to leave her. :

    Stood in a field full of poison ivy to train Molly.

    Gave up going to Florida & Myrtle to go to the Outer Banks so we can take the labs.

    Although knowing all of the people on this forum...this is not extreme....is it?

    Let's see...

    I traded my Altima (Henry was getting cramped in the backseat... that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! ) for an Envoy

    Then wound up trading the Envoy back to a car because of Henery's knee (didn't want him jumping up and out of the back of the truck every day).

    Bought a bigger house with a bigger yard for him.

    Built a 6' wood privacy fence for him with the help of my brother and SIL.

    Send him to daycare EVERY day! ;D

    Extreme? Probably not, considering the company!

    Spent $2,500 on Scotty's bilateral elbow surgery plus another $1,500 (to date) on physical therapy, massage therapy, and drugs for his elbows.

    Spent quite a bit (to date) on his training and equipment.

    Going to buy a house with a big lot soon so that I can build him a pool (well, we'll use it too).

    I'm in the $2,500 club too, for surgery for an intestinal blockage. :

    Endured bleeding hands and arms, and looks of pity from all who saw them, for six months because I believed in the people of JL when they told me it would get better. :P

    Tonight I actually tried to brush a dog's teeth.

    But, having two good doggies that make me proud: Priceless. ;D

    The most common extreme is rearranging my schedule for my dogs. I think I'm sort of a home-body anyways, so it doesn't "hurt" too badly, but I've been known to blow off some pretty good plans, because I was out most of the day, and I didn't want to leave them again.

    *sigh* I can't help it......

    Weelll...

    We give Aly allergy shots. Used to be weekly, but now it is just once a month. I traded in a car that I had only had a couple of weeks b/c J&A weren't comfortable in the back (it was a two door Civic. I traded it for a CRV). I've cancelled trips and taken off work for a variety of dog issues. I missed a big exam last school year because I was at the emergency vet most of the night for Aly (it always seems to be Aly).

    Nothing major, but it does all add up.
    I'm Jenn. Keeper of two labs in my home and one forever in my heart.

    Throw the ball, damn it!
