Anyway Julep has been sadly neglected lately due to the twins‘ arrival. She keeps acting out – eating the trash, destroying entire jars of the babies’ coconut oil, etc. etc. etc. These are things she hasn’t done before, and well, it’s getting kind of epic.
She keeps eating strange things and then throwing up in the middle of the night. I always think it’s my son choking so I bolt out of bed only to find it’s the dog who has tried to self-destruct yet again.
I’ve hired dog walkers, let her cuddle with me every night to make up for it, and it’s still not enough. She’s pissed that she’s been replaced, and that’s that.
So, I’m starting to wonder, should I buy pet insurance? Because I sort of feel like Julep is going to do something really stupid that will cost me a lot of money to fix. And, as annoying as this dog is right now, she is pretty justified. I mean, she was my baby, my one and only, for 5 years and now she has to compete with two other babies.
Think about it: we always insure certain things without question – our vehicles with vehicle insurance, our homes with homeowner’s insurance, and even ourselves with life insurance. We all probably work with several different insurance agents for our homes or cars or whatever every year. But things like pet insurance are viewed as optional. I know some pet owners wouldn’t dream of caring for an animal without insurance, while others wouldn’t give a pet policy a second thought. I mean, I never did until my dog started to act like this. I should mention, though, that she loves the babies and licks their faces all the time. She’s just mad at me for not paying attention to her.
Anyway, I looked it up and pet insurance can range from $30-$100 a month with a $500 deductible. It just seems so silly though since my dog is so healthy… until she decides to ingest an entire diaper or something like that.
