"Very good idea to use Google Docs so you and the boy can work on it/view it easily. Even if you can't make a template, maybe you can get a screenshot of the pages so I can get a general idea of what it looks like and figure it out from there?…"
"According to Mint.com, I've spent about 2k on my 2 year old corgi over the last 12 months on the following:
Food (50lb bag every 4 months - $50)
Meds (heart worm & flea prevention)
Weekly Day camp (about $1K)
Emergency vet visits…"
"I agree with Sam on the emergency fund, even $2k is easy to spend if it's a blown ACL, an obstruction, etc. And the last thing you want to be thinking when your baby is hurting is "how can I afford this.""
"Or a retired breeding dog that has been living in a home NOT a kennel. I have rehomed a few corgis...rescues and retired females and Anna is correct...all of mine were fixed and UTD on shots etc. I only charged for the spaying and direct $ I had…"
"Hi Mandy. While I certainly commend you for wanting to save up a reasonable amount for your future pup, especially as a young person, I do want to point out that, according, to the numbers of what people spend, only the rich could afford…"
"The fact that you track everything is BEYOND AWESOME. haha. I do that with a lot of other things in my life also because I want to know exactly what things will cost in the upcoming year/month so I can budget accordingly. Is there any possible way…"
"Yeah $330 of the $650 was the spaying the balance was shots & they rewormed her because on her first visit I forgot my papers from the breeder saying what she already had. Plus that included 6 months of Heartguard & they talked me into…"
"My Foxy is 5 months old and so far I have spent $650 at the vet for shots, spaying, heartworm, pet tabs (vitamin). She was $900 to purchase. We spent about $450 at Petsmart on cage, bed, bowls, toys, chewies, antlers, etc. but not…"

It is! It reminds me of how my brother would drive me crazy when we were little. Also, my folks have an Australian Shepard. I love him! He's such a lover and he tries to talk with us. Lol It's adorable. Also, you'll be pretty close to us! We live in a house on Virginia ave. we'll have to set up a puppy play date when you get yours :) lots of parks around here.
They actually get along really well! Twinky did not like him at first, though. Sterling ALWAYS wants to play, so Twinky just climbs on top the couch or on the bed when he's done. Lol Btw, I saw that you're moving to St. Louis Park. Welcome to the area!
