World's Most Expensive Free Dog

That would be T.D.; a.k.a Tiny Dog/'tardo-dog.

I mentioned his seizures before.

Well, now he's been diagnosed with Intervertebral Disk Disease. Which is common in dachshunds. He just one day had a hard time with going up and down stairs. And jumping on the couch.

$200 later we have prednisone to give him to help with the inflammation.

All I know is that the medicine better work. We love our animals but we just are the type to pay for spinal taps, mylograms, and disk fusion for a dog.

I'm pretty sure we'd be willing to do it for one of the kids, but not so much the dog.

Had to do prednisone and 30 days of cage rest for ours. It worked! She wasn't real crazy about being caged except for potty breaks, but she made it and was good to go!

I just don't understand how people can put dogs on par with people or finances. Dogs are a possession, and a costly on at that, I wouldn't spend a penny on medicine for a dog.

Thanks Leah, hopefully he'll recover quickly.

IDNKM, well, I don't understand how (or why) a married a man not only ogles women but also writes about it in a blog ad nauseam.
