While sitting at lunch this past week, we were talking about vet bills, dog’s shots, Kitty MRI’s. I was explaining that our country Vet, The Parker Veterinary Clinic, was low cost and worth the drive. I reported that we pay very little for our animals…In fact, my Yellow Lab was given to me. She was free.
There was a pause in the room and Amanda stated the obvious: “There’s no such thing as a free dog.”
And with that, we returned to eating. Silenced by this simple and painful truth.
