Meet Mocha, My New Birkin Bag

Came across this article tonight, and thought, ‘what coincidence?’  Apparently, J and I aren’t the only ones who will spend bundles just to save their pets’ lives.  There are tons of others who want the latest and greatest medical care for their pets.  For those who don’t have pets, it would be hard to understand why we’re willing to ‘waste money on an animal’; but to those of us whose dog has spent a decade with us, the dog is more than just an animal.  Mocha has kept me company during my loneliest times during residency, seen me struggle past a few boyfriends before finally meeting the one, kept me active along the way – as I didn’t have a choice but to keep up with her, provided constant hilarity (mixed in with a few headaches), and has taught me what unconditional love really means.  For her I am grateful.  So it’s a no brainer.  Sure, at the end of the day her medical care will cost as much as a Birkins bag, but it’s all worth it because the dog is priceless.

    Yes, do whatever you need to do, and are comfortable with, to take care of Mocha. I have no regrets–I did my best to provide Jefferson with the best care and life. Like you said, it's the least we can do for someone who loved (loves) us unconditionally.
