We, too, adopted a dog and then ended up footing the bill for a lot of medical expenses. She had heartworm (not divulged by the previous owners) and $600.00 later and two weeks of IV’s she was better. She also had many surgeries for mamary tumors and ear infections. She was an adorable black Lab/Cocker Spaniel mix named “Samantha.” Would I do it again? Of course. She died at the age of ten and a half but we had eight good years with her and my kids, now in their twenties, still talk about her often. Enjoyed your book immensely and am sorry for your loss.
