My Mom always had great sayings...and here is one that applies perfectly to my situation right now:
"Now that is highway robbery".....
So what could be so outlandish that would deserve this? How about the equivalent of $1,702.64.
That is the price that the kennel wanted me to pay to board my two dogs and cat over the holidays!!!
Granted we will be gone 24 days, but PUHLEEZE!!! I might as well not even go away!
I know it is a long time to leave my animals. Please DO NOT reprimand me for that until you have lived overseas for an extended period of time. I love my animals, and the place that I usually take them is quite unbelievable. I will add their link here, even though it is in Portuguese, just click through their site. The place is actually like the pictures. They let the dogs run free and it really doesn't smell or anything. I have been there unannounced before and it was amazing to have 20 dogs come running up to me yet no pee smell, no little packages sitting on the pathway or in the grass. They do take good care of them, even giving them a bath before they come home.
Yea, all nice and all BUT $1,702.64...
sorry furry friends, you will be staying in the house with the maid and her daughter! (and that is only going to cost me a camera, tennis shoes and a few football shirts! well, plus I will leave money for food and pay her, too! still doesn't equal $1,702.64~)
