Twenty Dollars

"All pet owners are encouraged to save $20 per month for unforeseen expenses such as emergency veterinary care and care for elderly pets."

I recently read this in a Spring 2011 dog newsletter. I thought it was fantastic advice!! Unless your income happens to be low and you need this sum of money for living expenses, $20.00 is not very much money!! Seriously.... One cannot buy gasoline anymore for twenty dollars!! A large family cannot purchase groceries with that amount!! And yet, each $20 swiftly multiplies!! If my math skills are correct, in twelve months, a pet owner will have saved $240.00!! Wow.... Face it: We are caring for mortal creatures here.... And veterinary bills are mighty expensive....
