|Some people spend a lot of money to go to Disney World on vacation, when they could stay at home or choose a different destination and save a lot of money.
Some people spend a lot of money to buy a new television, computer, tablet, or other electronic device, when they could make do with what they have and save a lot of money.
Some people hire professionals to mow their lawn or do their landscaping, when they could save a lot of money doing it themselves or hiring a high school student.
Some people buy books, when they could save a lot of money by borrowing them from the library.
Some people spend a lot of money to eat out, when they could save some by staying home and cooking for themselves.
And on and on . . . bottom line, it's not always about what is the cheapest. It's about your personal preferences and making the best choice you can for your family and your situation. If it's within your budget, it's what you want, and you know it's the best choice for you, then do it.
The only time I have a problem with people spending large amounts of money on things like this, is when they complain about how they can't afford their groceries, they can't afford to buy clothes for their kids, they can't afford gas to drive to work (and they borrow money from other family members to purchase these needed items) and then they walk around bragging about how they just spent $1000+ on a new pool, or a vacation, or an electronic item, or a puppy they got at the mall.
But I assume you're not like that, this sounds like something you have been planning and saving for; in that case, get the dog that's right for you, and don't worry about what they say.
