I finally purchased pet insurance for the dogs.
I’ve never been one to purchase warranties or protection plans… but I looked through our vet records and realize the dogs have cost us about $2,500 in three years. Pet ownership is not cheap! The plan is about $15 a month per dog or $360 a year…. and if we had it last night, we would’ve be reimbursed at least $500.
According to this article in The New York Times, only 2% of pets are insured. The author makes a good point when she states, “For many pet owners, of course, neither veterinary care for complex health problems nor paying monthly pet insurance bills is affordable or even possible, so I know that having the choice is a luxury.” So true – I really felt grateful that we had enough savings to be able to pay for James last night.
Speaking of James, he’s doing good. 🙂 He’s snoozing on a new bed that I bought him this morning (he ruined the other one last night):
Alright – enough puppy talk! This is supposed to be a healthy living blog. 🙂
Lunch was divine:
I marinated zucchini, squash, and mushrooms in balsamic and then grilled them on the George Foreman.
My sandwich also contained mustard, sprouts, and melted cheese.
Plus, a pickle and a plum:
My plans for this afternoon include WRITING! I missed my run last night and hope to squeeze it in later, but I’m not sure I want to leave James alone. I’m already planning on skipping lab because he shouldn’t be alone for 3 hours. I might do a 5 miler and swing by the house after 2.5 miles to check in on him…. I’m an obsessed fur mommy!
