Don't get me wrong, I totally went all math on it and decided that amortizing the surgery cost over about 10 more years of the dog made it a value proposition...the little shit.

I mean, dogs are the best. Can't live without them. But make sure you have pet insurance for emergencies because they seriously have the WORST judgement.

This.  Our old girl just strained her neck about a month ago, so we spent a month on pain killers and muscle relaxers and banned from the leash.  Thankfully she's better now, but the leash ban was hard on her.  She likes to patrol the yard, and has adapted well to being on the leash.  Being restricted to the fenced part of the yard was just no fun for her when she knows she has responsibilities. 

And poor Lyle the neurotic pit bull.  He's allergic to grass so he likes to stay on the porch.  He also has to take Benadryl all day, which from his perspective is like winning the lottery.  Did you know that if you stick doggy pills in a little ball of liverwurst they'll swallow them with no trouble and ask for more?

I checked into the pet insurance angle two years ago when my MegaLoCorp started offering it as an added package, but was disappointed that the annual cost plus the deductible/covered percentage made it an expensive proposition. Like, this last bundle of cost came out about equal with paying for coverage the last couple of years.

Am I missing better market options?

Were they offering just one company or did you get to compare several? We actually just switched to a new company and doing the research, the prices were very different. Wirecutter did a detailed review pretty recently, might be worth checking it out.

But I think insurance is always a gamble that different people play differently, you know? We've had many-thousand-dollar incidents with previous dogs and I would like the security of knowing that that would be paid for if it happens, even if most years I'm losing money on the deal. YMMV.

Nah, it was only one company, but it was in line with the other ones I've looked into in the past.
I think I'm spoiled by having an unusually healthy run of dogs, is what it s.

Now hosss? Those fuckers should come with insurance. Fortunately I found a good vet who's reasonable if I truck them to him. I pay $40 for the trailer instead of the vet's $250 home visit fee now.

Ohhhh, also I found a vet that will let me bring him a sandwich bag of poop and then for $45 he'll look at it under a microscope and tell me the animals parasite load and what, if any, type of dewormer to use effectively.

P.S. Gidget is 48 days pregnant with about 100 to go. Over on the FB I belong to an Achewood sub-group of animal raising people and a poor gal there just had pregnancy related complications and lost both of her does and the kids. This gives me nightmares.

BTW, Mickey is back to being his little love-sponge self and is tired of the cone of shame and itchy where his hair is growing back in. Watching him eat out of his dog bowl with the cone is frikkkkkin' hilarious. He has to angle the cone down and over the bowl, so from the outside it looks like a cone sitting on the floor with the back half of a dog sticking out.

With chomping sound coming from the inside of the cone. Classic.

I just realized we've raised enough pigs to make recalling the correct name for the hog the bacon I just gave a guy is difficult.

Buckle
Hammy
Jab-Jab
Tires
Nuggets

Time flies when you're raising bacon, I guess.

Also, I about shit my ##### and died last weekend. We were working out back so we let the hosss and goats out to roam and stretch out. Coco the thoroughbred was dashing across the yard and Gidget the pregnant goat ran under her and got kick-rolled.

The poor goat got up and stood there stunned for a minute and then went back in her pen where things were safer. Goats are pretty fuck*ng smart, sometimes. No permanent harm done, fortunately.
