What's NOT in My Wallet!!!


So...our girl is home and while she is in a little bit of pain she seems so glad to be home!

So, we have stimulated the economy of one local veterinarian to the tune of $1000.00!
We are not complaining but I can't help but daydream about wishing Riley didn't have to have surgery and how I would have liked to spend a $1000.00!
I would have loved to spend the weekend at the beach!!! One that accepts dogs of course!!

So...How would you spend a thousand dollars this weekend?
For more friday fotos visit Cute Candid Carrie!




Enjoy your weekend and thanks for all the get well wishes for our girl!

Wow! Poor puppy:-( I hope he feels better soon. I wish I had $1000 to spend this weekend.

Rhonda said...

Oh, sweet Riley!!! If I had $1000, I'd probably pay our insurance that just came in!! Ugh!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Poor baby!!!!

If I had $1000 - Mr. B and I would be headed to the Ballet in Atlanta and then we would dine someplace REALLY wonderful and then get a penthouse suite kind of hotel room....

Teri said...

Oh my goodness! She is such a sweet puppy to be in that pain. Ow. I hope she feels better soon. I once spent $2000 (over 15 years ago!) on special surgery for my kitty. Worth every penny.

If I had an extra $1000 this weekend, I would buy my hubby that Bose sound system he really wants for our den...that we can't buy right now because we don't have an extra $1000. Circular, hmm? :-)

Lauren said...

That's a BIG cut. I hope she is ok. Please let us know. SHEEEEEEEET! What wud I do with $1K that didn't need to go toward rent or bills...hmmm?

Betty said...

If I had that kind of dough, I would make an extended vacation on the beaches of Brazil. $1000 goes a long way in South America.... :)

Oh good Lord, I'm hoping NOTNOTNOT to have to spend $1000 this weekend. Your dog is so beautiful, I hope she is back on her feet quickly.

Kori said...

Sweet baby, that makes ME hurt terribly! I am glad she is home and on the way to recovery, though. If I had a thousand dollars this weekend, I would give half of it to my previous landlady so she would get off my butt about supposed damages to the old house, and the other half? Go buy my daughter a new outfit to wear for her first date, and buy myself some hyacinth bulbs to force. I am ready for Spring!

Oh my word!!! Poor baby! That just stopped my heart.
I would go buy French Doors for my back entrance so that the sliding doors could be replaced because they are a danger and constantly coming off track which scares the crud out of me, then I'd take the extra money and buy a much needed table for our kitchen ;-) :-)

Worth every penny i'm sure...Now she's where she blongs...with the one's she loves...

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Ooh, been there... last summer with both dogs, one with a timber rattlesnake bite and one with bone cancer... Love my mutts but would certainly rather have spent all that money with a nice trip to the Bahamas.

Soooo glad your Riley is home where she feels safe, happy and secure.

Scary Mommy said...

I'd check into a spa and live it up. Pretty sure that will NEVER happen!

Thinking of sweet Riley!!!

Veggie Mom said...

Awwwww..poor puppy! Glad she came through OK, and hope the prognosis is good! If I had 1,000 bucks, I'd have to spend it on college tuition, but I'd love to spend it on a trip to the Caribbean!

Tiffany @ Lattes And Life said...

Poor girl!!!!! If I had an extra $1000? I'd fly somewhere to a good dentist since I have agonizing tooth pain and NObody will give me an appointment until next week. Can you tell I'm just a wee bit miserable??? Me and your pooch should just snuggle up together and nap.

Glenda, saved by grace said...

I am taking 1000.00 and leaving the state next Tuesday...I'm going to see my 3rd boy that I haven't seen in nearly a year.
There is NO price to great!! :)

Jeanne said...

If I my dog was sick, I'd spend the thousand dollars on her. Because money is replaceable, but great dogs aren't.

Ann On and On... said...

O.k. true story. We drove from MI to NY to get a pacemaker put in our dog.... it passed away within a year. :( We would however do it again if we had too. Dogs fill that special void in our lives.
1000.00, I would fly my friend to see me. It has been 2 years since we have see each other, but we talk almost everyday. Then we would have a blast with the extra money!

I started a giveaway today...stop by if you have a minute. :)
Happy Friday!

Riley looks so sweet. I have a little Yorkie whom I love like you love Riley. I've enjoyed reading your posts here. Just came over from Suburb Sanity.

Violet said...

If I had $1000 to spend this weekend, I would buy an iPod and a plane ticket to Omaha.

Oh, and world peace.

amelia bedelia said...

OH my gosh, that looks very painful. Poor thing. If I had $1000, I would spend it on me! Clothes, shoes, nice lunch and a pedicure!

Jennifer said...

Oh ouch--poor baby! I'm glad she's home.

I always tell my kids if they want to be millionaires--become a vet!

If I could spent $1000 I would probably buy some art!

Z's Mom said...

Poor baby....that cut looks mean. Hope she's feeling better now.

Let's see...if I had it for this weekend I would like to say I would take Zander somewhere...like to a beach. I'm still afraid to fly with him though....I don't think he'll behave on a plane yet.

OH...a new mattress.....mine is 20 years old....which might be part of the reason I'm not asleep right now.....

Linda S said...

that looks so sad...but i have 2 sick animals, so I might have to spend it on them...*le sigh*

Kelly said...

Ooooh! Poor Riley...my heart is hurting for her!
If I had a $1,000, I'd probably be boring and pay bills!

Coachdad said...

Good luck to Riley! $1,000? Mad dash to Vegas!

Debbie said...

Oh, I'm so happy for you that she is OK! Seems like money well spent.

Ginger said...

So glad she is home, she is precious.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Poor Riley! I am glad she made it through the surgery okay!
