My pet is putting me in the poor house. Between paying for doggie day care, vet visits and food, I am getting myself into debt. I recently took in a roommate to cut the cost of my apartment in half, but it still isn't enough. I know I should eliminate doggie day care, but Poo Poo is my baby and I can't stand the thought of her home alone in my small NYC apt all day. --Pet Peaved
Dear Pet Peaved
Dogs are dogs, not babies. If you hire a dog walker, your costs will significantly decrease. Maybe Poo Poo can find companionship in watching Pet Planet on TV while you are at work.
