It's the first day of a new month, so I just calculated my dog-related expenses for the previous month. I do this for a few reasons-I follow others who do it, to hold myself accountable, and to track my expenses. This is a fair estimate of what it costs to care for three large dogs in the midwest.
July 2015 Expenses
This month was a bit more expensive than the last few. My main expense this month was food. I placed two relatively large orders with My Pet Carnivore, purchased my usual chicken leg quarters from the grocery store, and a bag of Grandma Lucy's Bison freeze-dried food. The only health expense was Bruce's prescription, and grooming expenses included a DIY dogwash for Neeko and a new undercoat rake.
