Every Once In A While I Don't Bargain Shop

April 14th, 2013 at 09:20 am

Usually when I have a purchase to make I take the time to shop around for the best deal. But not always.

On Friday I found out that a neighbor's dog (who we jokingly called the "girlfriend" of our late pooch) was diagnosed with cancer and is going to have an eye removed on Monday. She's a sweet little dog and the owners are fantastic people. To illustrate how kind-hearted they are, when our "boy" died they made a donation to the animal welfare group where I volunteer.

Yesterday I went to a local doggy boutique and bought a stuffed animal and bag of treats, paying full retail price. This morning I wrapped them up and will deliver this afternoon when I take my walk. No time to bargain shop this time.

People and pets first, then money, then things.

    It's the fellowship of the pet people! This morning I looked out the front door and saw my next door neighbors walking two big dogs. They don't have two big dogs. They don't even have one little dog. Ha, they were walking the dogs of the neighbor on their other side! Smile

    Since my dog died, I've been walking the dogs of neighbors who don't have the time or energy. One even offered to pay me, but I turned them down.
    I get as much out of it as the dogs and owners do. I have a legacy project in the works for my late dog and I may tell them about it in case they want to donate as repayment. Wink

    When another neighbor couple went to the hospital to deliver their baby, I petsat for free. They really wanted to pay me something so I asked them to make a donation to xxx (my "pet" charity) and they did.

    Pet people truly are the best!
