It’s Tax Time . . . and I’ve been thinking about numbers . . .

Number of U.S. Households who have pets: 73 Million

Amount spent on those pets in 2010: 48 Billion 

Increased spending on doggie gifts in 2010, despite the economic downturn: 30 Percent

Unconditional Love:  Priceless

I love you Toki!

    well I know our dog spending went up mainly due to the addition of Wyatt. Can’t stop supporting the vendors we love right?

  2. Funny that you should mention tax and our spending on the precious one. They should let us create a Pet Spending Account akin to Flexible Spending Account. Thanks for stopping by on my blog. You are so right. Their unconditional love is priceless.

  3. Yeah, our dog spending went up too after we adopted Gretel. One, because she needs stuff but two, because it made us spoil Chester a tad more to make up for ruining his only child gig 🙂

    Thanks for visiting us new friend. Mom spent 65468656654 cents on Lilys dermatologist last year. Polo match you ask? I think it was in Will Rogers State Park

  5. First off…gorgeous picture of you and Toki!

    At first I was surprised when I heard about the increased spending, but the more and more I thought about it, the more it made sense. Our furry loved ones are so precious too us, and people realize that even more during the rough times.!
