How about my current litter:

Cost to fly to the male for me - 1900.00
Cost to fly the bitch including health certficate - 580.00
Cost of hotel/rental car/food while there - 1800.00
Cost of stud fee - 1000.00

Vet care for birth (needed some oxytocin to get the last couple out then got a bit of a uterine infection) - 550.00

Tails and dew claws - 225.00

Ear crop (not done yet, but I know how much it will cost) - 3000.00

So, 9055.00 which doesn't include extra food that the female eats (she is getting 3 x the normal amount). It also doesn't include puppy food, puppy toys and other associated costs.

ETA: I will admit that this is the most expensive litter I have ever had.
