    spending $50+/month for healthcare or $25+/day for a baby sitter seems awful silly to me
    I love dogs and shit but it's a fucking dog

    this makes me seem meaner and more heartless than I really am

    Well, I work in San Francisco. And judging by the sidewalks here, the cost ain't because anyone is cleaning up after the pet.

    That's why I run a cattle ranch at my office. I pass on the costs of pet ownership to the end user.

    Prescott, AZ is a great place to live. And one if those reasons is that EVERYONE takes their dogs EVERYWHERE! I take my dog everywhere too, but I keep her in the car. These people take them EVERYWHERE!

    People who have jobs, long commutes, homes or apartments with no lawn, and like to arrive home to a shit free smelling home.
