    Where did you get the money to pay for $2000 worth of surgery and vet bills, but can't fork out an odd $250 for desexing?

    Anyway, on the ute issue, I have no problem with it, but the lead should only be long enough for them to be able to sit, stand and lay down. Im pretty sure I already told you this when I saw a photo of him in your ute a while back.
    I like how some people would rather bring someones presonal life into something that nothign to do with anything really..

    But because you asked, ill be happy to answer your question.
    To be able to pay for his surgery plus other things i had to borrow money from 3 diffrent members of my family plus i had to clean out my banks saving of a huge 396 dollars.
    Firstly, on the night it happend i was staring at a 690 odd dollar bill to which i had to pay 75% up front.. i cleaned out my bank account and borrowed the rest off my gf's father to which im yet to have paid back..

    The following day i was forced to call my grandmother and ask for the remaining 25% of that first bill.. she was aware that i now had 0 money for my living expenses and offered me 500 dollars to pay the owing on Lex's bill
    which had grown and extra 81 dollars because he had to stay in hospital friday night for futher examination..

    Later that day i had found out that Lex's tow had to be amputated and was givin a rough estimate of surgery costs and further costs with medication, vet vists twice a week along with bandage costs.. which was estimated to 1200 dollars, thankfully i have a loving and caring people around me, and my GF's younger sister offered me 600 dollars, forcing me to ask my auntie for an additional 600 dollars.. contimplating the bill rising, i excersised the idea of possibly putting lex down because i just couldnt afford it, even though the vet had not suggested this, im nto sure wether or not it was pheasable, it took me a whole of 2 seconds to think about that, as lex is like a child to me and id rather be doing it tough and pay people back slowly than lose him..

    So here i am now with 300 odd dollars to my name and its all for lex's future costs with vet vists..
    And on the chain, i wont say it again as i already feel bad enough.

    I made a mistake, i took a chance, i failed lex, ive paid the price and ive lernt dearly from it..

    I was working on getting him desexed for when i do my tax, for that is the only chance ill have some extra money.

    I wasn't asking for every single detail, but I appreciate it anyway.
    I get told 'oh yeah, im short on money at the moment, the dog will get desexed ASAP' a year later they come in for an ultrasound and the excuse 'yeah she got out' all the time.

    Im not gonna lecture you, but don't wait till it happens before you 'learn' from it.

    I have never done a name change, but is there an option in the first post for you to do a full edit? you may be able to change the name

    Right now - if i had a dog that needed to be desexed, i could not afford it (all my pets are desexed, but any future males will not be done) but if my dogs were badly hurt, i would do all i could to get them the vet attention they needed.

    can we have more photos?
