I know I can’t leave this puppy pen, but can you please put Tofu in the puppy pen with me? 🥺🥺🥺 (Tofu said no) #littlebrofur
We are constantly getting questions about how much it costs to raise a puppy. It’s officially been a little over a month since we got Boshi, and here is a tally of everything we’ve spent on him in the first month:
$1600 for Boshi himself
$300 for transportation from out of state
$250 for supplies (crate, toys, fences, cleaner)
$150 for food (2 months worth) and treats
$170 for supplements (1 year supply) $250 for vet checkups, vaccines, flea meds
$55 for pet insurance (this repeats monthly)
$150 for puppy obedience classes
$250 for private training session
TOTAL COST: about $3,135
I want to be transparent about this because a lot of people don’t realize how expensive pet care is until after they get their dog. It’s important to note that while most of the items listed up there are one-time, foundational costs, a few of them (food, supplements, insurance, vet) are continuous and will repeat for the rest of his long life. We also have an emergency fund set up for both pups because those medical costs are so expensive and you never know what will happen (Tofu’s overnight hospital stay last year cost us $1,800 for one night!). For anybody considering a new dog, I hope you find this helpful. ❤️
Got all dressed up in my best @redandgingerco hoodie, for date night only to be told I wasn't invited 😮😤 .
I guess I'm staying home alone whilst the humans head out to @birdandblendtea love of pancakes lock-in. 😍☕😍
Hope they at least bring me back a treat.
They give a lot of clues as to how a dog is feeling. Before I give you a list of ear positions and their meanings, Keep in mind that different breeds have different natural ear positions. You will have to take this into account!
1. Natural stance - relaxed
2. Up and forward - alert
3. Down and back - cautious
4. One ear up - environmental change
5. Ears up and back - working/ focused
Follow our Instagram stories this afternoon! We will be taking videos of the dog’s ears today to put this new knowledge to the test!
