Wow, 30 chi's! They look very well cared for so why not? They must be incredibly healthy too or the vet bills could be astronomical. Hey, if you can afford 30, go for it. It sure would be fun to see them in action. :lol:
A guy at work asked me the other day how much I spend on Lily's daycare and vet bills on average. I sat down and figured it out. For the 12 month period from June 15, 2004 to June 15, 2005... almost $3000 for vet bills and about $4000 for daycare. During that time Lily had 2 dental surgeries, she was diagnosed with a heart murmur and possibly epilepsy, we had a couple emergency vet visits (which cost up the wazoo), two annual checkups, two sets of shots, an ultrasound, xrays, and two sets of bloodwork. And yet, Lily seems just as healthy and happy as ever and that's all that really matters to me. But there's no way I could afford even one more chi. :lol:
The guy at work was astounded (I was too :lol: ). He said that was more than people spend on a kid (who would be covered on the parents' health insurance, eligible for a daycare credit, not to mention a tax write-off). But, as I told him, Lily will never want to go to summer camp, college, a senior prom, or walk down the aisle to get married. I'm actually getting off pretty cheap. :lol:
I only have three...but it i could I would have 5 at this moment....stupid landlord not allowing me to have more...lol :wink:
OMG 30 chi's is a lot. I agree though they all look beautiful. Their coats look awesome and well groomed. Hey I always said as long as you can care equally for them you should have as many as you want (you have to $$$ care for them too of course)
my breeder is a bit older. She doesnt work. She stays at home all the time to care for her chi's. She shows them to. We asked when she got her first one and she said her huisband left her so she got a chi then her friend suggested breeding so she got another chi, then she had puppies, they she just kept on going and now she has her 30!!! She's really crazy about then she has this poor rescue chi. If she hadnt taken him he would have been put down. His owner was bad to him and said he was vicous but she says he was nothing for the kind he was just really scared now. He was too cute and he seemed to love her. She has pens for them all. Every night she puts them to bed two per carte. Even that would take forever. Then she says she has over 5 loads of washing to to everyday before she can even leave the house to buy her newspaper. SHe kinda lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere to so they all can go outside when they wish. She has her house fenced of for them.
It really is amazin and shes a specially kinda person. Shes breeding zolas mum and dad again and keeping the whole litter cuz she loves his litter that much. She wished she had kept his litter, thank god she did not or I would not have my baby
