    We have had to cut corners on other things, but not on our dogs.

    Will meet all of Vegas's needs, His special food, Vet when needed, his special treats, getting his nails dremmeled, and of course all the toys and costumes I buy him. Joe complains every time we go spend $65. on his food but if you break it down a bag last him 6-7 weeks that is $10. a week, I spend almost more than that a day on ciggs. (YES I KNOW... I AM BAD I SMOKE ) If we need to cut corners it will be personally, Not with Vegas.

    Shame on whoever said that they would spend LESS on their bulldog because of the economy. You chose to purchase/adopt an English Bulldog so you SHOULD have known what that entails (ie. special foods, vet bills, etc.).

    My 6 Bulldogs will not know there is a problem with the economy. They will receive the same healthy food, diet supplements, treats, vet visits. I will look for deals on their monthly meds (heart worm, flea/tick). I just ordered these online at PetCareRX...they were offering a 20% discount and free shipping. Prices were good too. Add it up for a year....a $300+ discount for a year's worth of meds is GREAT!

    We are on a fixed income, but we do fine. The dogs will get the same care they've been getting. If we have to cut corners it won't be where they are concerned.

    Times are rough but the most expensive thing I get him is his food and now both my dogs are on it and that won't change, knock on wood. I'll cut out stuff in the food budget for us first, lol.

    I fell the same about Dozer as I do my human kids. If I have to get a second job to provide for them then so be it. They will have everything they need and some of what they want with in reason. We always have and always will find ways to work things out thankfully. @ marshahennessey I don't know who said it so i cannot speak directly for them but my guess is that the person who said they would be spending less probably isn't talking about food or vet costs. If their dogs gets one less hoodie or chew toy I think that is reasonable . You can only give as much as your pocketbook allows but everyone on this forum that I have encountered would never fail to provide anything necessary for the health and wellbeing of their dogs, so not worries

    Yes but not on anything important. I stopped buying random treats, we are sticking to the fruits and veggies because they are cheaper. Other than that everything is the same.

    We probably spend more. Hubby and I were always getting layed off so there was no room for any special treats with Cassie and Gunner. Now we've gotten pretty good jobs and aren't too concerned with losing them any time soon so Belly is getting lots of new things to see what she does best on.
