Whew!! I have one dobe and two ferrets. I am an attorney and my husband is a Boilermaker. Even with our income, its hard. With frontline and heartguard for all, it is really expensive. Not to mention high quality food. And....then the accidents. Loki cut his foot and I had to rush him to the vet...which cost $300. That is great if you have the funds, but I couldn't imagine what it would be like. Not to mention the time...it seems I never have enough time. And Loki isn't even a show dog.
