June 2014 Expenses

It's the first of the month, and that means it is time for me to hold myself transparent and accountable for my dog-related expenses.

I do these posts for a few reasons.  I have seen a few other bloggers do them, and it is a good way for me to keep track and be accountable for dog related expenses.  Also, it is a fairly accurate example of the costs associated with caring for three large dogs.  Some argue that raw is expensive, but in my opinion and experience, it is no more expensive than feeding a good quality kibble.

June 2014 Expenses



Food was a bit of grocery store chicken, and a coOp order.

Most of our health expenses were from Neeko's wellness appointment, which included heartworm and tick-borne disease blood test.  $8.00 of it was Bruce's omnipresent prescription.

Treats was the cost of our June PetBox, which I neglected to review, because I did the pick your own this past month.

All in all, a good month.  I have had a string recently of being way under our food budget (300.00 per month) and I will be very happy to see that continue. 


  1. Maybe you'll win the treat giveaway on my blog and defray some budget costs for July! Thanks for entering!

  2. I find it interesting to compare costs. If we had two more dogs, our food costs would be about the same as yours. Over the years, I've found the more I spend on food the less I spend on vet care.

  3. It is always great to come in under budget. :)

  4. I don't even want to think of what I've spent this month. There was Nola's annual, which included flea/heartworm meds, heartworm test and bloodwork, Pike got a new bag of food, $25 on Nola's home cooked, plus stuff the Poodle puppy including deposit and crate and grooming stuff....oy. Probably well over $1,000. And Pike just had a vet appointment today...sigh.

  5. I do think about having larger dogs someday. Your budget keeps me from doing anything rash. ;)

  6. Thanks for sharing your expenses and it's great that you keep track like that!

  8. Hi, my names is Shawn am new here and I would be needing help from you guys. My Late Dad was a Yorkie and Kitten pet breeder, he started breeding sphynx kittens ?? when I was 15 years old and he named the small cattery after me, "Shawn sphynx Cattery" cheap sphynx kittens for sale. He has been breeding for 13 years before he passed away and before he died he asked me to continue running the cattery. So I contact some of the registered sphynx breeder for advice, they told me I need to build a website to advertise the Liter I have available so I did that. Here is the website I built yorkie puppies for adoption please you guy should review and advise me on what to do please ?? I need more advice from you on what to do
