Whew! Dogster sure is full o' lotsa purty balloons these daze! Thanks, pups! I just got around to sendin' a few out meself this mornin'!

Went on a cancer walk last Sunnyday. It was the same Morris Animal Foundation people puttin' it on, like last year. We walked all thru downtown San Jose! Nice day and a nice walk, but I kinda liked the park we walked thru last year a bit better, even tho last year we was in the city o' cats, Los Gatos.

We walked with our GoodNeighborFriendLady, like last year. But this year we were missin' my doggy pal, Milo. He, and all our Rainbow Bridge furs, were well on the peoples' minds this day.

Yesfurday, the ma was sortin' thru all the goodies we got at the walk. There is always all kinds o' doggy related business peoples that come out to be seen at these events.

She came across a brochure fur pet insurance, Trupanion. This insurance claims to have unlimited pay outs fur cancer and congenital and hereditary diseases. Plus they have an optional hip dysplasia addon.

The ma looked into insurance fur me several years ago, when I was still a puppy. At the time, she got so frustrated and confused with the exclusions she dropped the whole idea. But now that I am 4, maybe it is time to reexplore that option.

I used to have pet insurance until Daddy died, and then Mommy couldn't afford the $1200. a year premiums. Mine was through the AKC.

Yikes! DFB, that AKC one seems pretty expensive! We are lookin' at about $40 per month. But this policy does not pay fur any regular well visits or teeth cleanin' or stuffs like that. It only covers cataclysmic accidents and illnesses like cancer, hip dysplasia, car accidents ...

No wonder we hates thinkin' about this insurance stuff! It is so depressin'! :o(

Well done for the walk Sweetie !!

We dont have Insurance. I know the ASPCA is very expensive....But I have heard good stuff about Trupanion but cant vouch for it personally.

Our vet only charges $10 for a visit and $30 for a full yearly set of vaccines including the Rabies. Small ops as a day patient (like when Lucas had a lump removal) was only just $90 with everything included...meds as well)
So stuff like that is ok and well inside the money we budget for the dogs welfare..... but if it were the very big things then .....

I will certainly go take a look at Trupanion again

Hmmm, I don't have insurance either, but at my age, it will likely cost a fortune! So far I've been a healthy dude...but of course we all know that in the twinkling of an eye...shudder!

Sounds like you had a really fun walk!
