The Rural Virginian

  • Pets’ temperament should dictate its needs for boarding

    Q: We are planning ahead for our summer vacation. How do we decide if it is better to leave our pet at home with a pet sitter or send him to a boarding facility? Is one better than the other?
  • Spaying, neutering is an imperative

    Q: We recently adopted a puppy from a shelter. We need to get her spayed, but my husband says it costs too much, and we already paid a lot for the puppy. He was mad when he heard how much the adoption fee was. I told him we signed an agreement saying we needed to spay her by a certain date, but we just don’t have the money. The vet says it would be about $300 for the surgery. My husband wants me to go back to the shelter and insist they pay for it. He’s mad they didn’t do it before adopting the puppy and says they broke the law by adopting the dog before spaying. I’m afraid they will take the puppy away from us if I go back and explain our dilemma. What should I do?

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
