We are paying $170 for shipping (to Great Falls, MT), plus a $50 kennelling fee because Finn has a layover
in Minneapolis/St. Paul. I know when MCat phoned about shipping it was the same to one of the other destinations.
So that's $220 (US, we're in Canada), plus gas/hotel/food to go to GF for the weekend. But dh and I haven't had a getaway in so long, and our 8th wedding anniversary is at the end of July, so we're looking at it as a weekend for the 2 of us as well as a puppy-retrieval mission.
If we were getting a purebred dog from a registered breeder, we would be paying at least as much as this is costing us. If we went to our local SPCA or through a rescue operation, I'm guessing it would be much less (although I could be wrong!)
But I really, truly believe that I was brought to the Pets forum when I was (first time I had "set foot" in here in over a year!) because Finn is meant to be part of our family.
I already know he is worth every penny.
(Oh, that last part was just about me/our family... not in any way a comment about anyone else who isn't able to make that kind of financial commitment. I just wanted to make that clear.
