What could I have done with $2,500?

I can think of a lot of ways to spend $2,500. Lots. Some responsible, others not.

No matter. I have been sick as a dog, so to speak, and woke up tired and cranky. Wife goes to feed Travis the super dog, and calls me down to look at him. Paralyzed from the "waist" down. Poor pup.

So, to the doc. Basically three options:

1) Kill him.
2) Treat him with meds and hope he gets better.
3) Send him to the Doggy surgeon.

Option 3 costs $2,500! For a $&(#*&(*&$ dog! A dog! But the vet claims this gives him the best prognosis.

He is family. And though it hurt$, we can afford it (it just zeros out any disposable spending we can do for the year).

I'm still cranky, but I think we are doing the right thing.
