The fuel to pick them up.
The mountain of toys.
The yards of vet bed.
The new crates.
The worn out shoes from walking them.
The trousers I ripped climbing over a fence.
The visits to the vets.
The new tent to sleep in at flyball competitions.
The suntan lotion to stop the top of my head burning when walking them.
The new cap as it was cheaper than the suntan lotion. ( only kidding the suntan lotions still in the bottle the cap was for the rain ).
The cost of a hotel room last weekend the night before a competition because my son had gone off with the new tent.

And to cap it all Ive just bought them their own freezer. Hope I'm not raided by the police it looks like its full of body parts.:eek:

Can u not get poo bags free of charge from ur council? Where I live u get them free at parks, council offices and the vets, just a small cost cutter! Hehe, but they are actually much better than the ones u buy at pets at home. Emma x

Wow I wish they did that down here in Bucks, maybe then other dog walkers would think to pick up their dog's mess instead of leaving it in the middle of the path.

We get our poo bags from poundland, 150 bags for £1? You can't go wrong :D

A 7 seater VW Sharan as it has 7 proper full size seats and two of the seats convert into child seats - you just pull a handle and the seat raises and moves back then add a child head rest to keep the seatbelt in position. It takes just a couple of seconds to change a seat from adult to child version. Also each seat comes out so you can decide best position for dog crate(s).

You could easily take all 5 back seats out and have a two seater you can sleep in (for chasing round the country doing flyball competitions :eek:)

With mum and dad in the front and 3 kids in the middle row I could soooo easily get 4 crates in the back :rolleyes:

We've got a Ford S-Max it used to be a seven seater- now with the big crate in the back even the shopping goes on the middle row, the tent on the floor behind the front seats, rest off the gear for the weekend. God its a two seater.
Now with the divider out of the crate I could fit four Cockapoo's in, don't give me ideas.
