Adding a Dog to the Family

Guest post written by Dawn Cooper:

For year's I've put off bringing a dog into the household because I was so devastated when my childhood dog passed away. I didn't want for my kids to have to go through that too. But it occurred to me when I saw them playing with a neighbor's dog that they still are missing out on a great childhood companion and I don't want to rob them of that any longer.

I want to figure out how much a dog is going to cost us more each month, though. That's definitely something I have to consider before I tell my kids that we're getting a dog. I was trying to figure that out through some online resources last week when I saw some info on relief from credit card debt. That's an issue for us and I've been unable to find ways to help with that for years. So I'm going to do that and get us on a better financial track.

I now know that we're going to be able to take care of a dog. I can't wait until we bring one home and can watch the kids play with it in the front yard.
