This is Blue

She’s a hound mix and a puppy. She partially crate trained. Micro chipped and spayed, but besides the initial adoption fee. I know there are a bunch of other stuff. Like vet costs, shot costs, grooming costs. Time spent potty training, if i want to travel. kennel costs. I don’t want to turn into one of those people who can’t take a shit without their dog. As well as what do I need to do, I work a standard 9 to 5 with a significant commute. I have a good friend who I can leave her with during the day. But I don’t want to rely on that. Doggie day care? Also Pet health insurance? I know nationwide actually offers it, but is it like a thing?

help.
