I have found the hardest part of this Post is figuring out what to call it ....... ?
Which may seem weird as I know what the concept is , and I know what I'm going to write about. Normally the problem is figuring what particular Manic Tale, I'm going to bombard you all with, at this time or that time :)
But nope this time its the Title .... I had originally called this piece,
Justifying the Cost ..... Verses ...... Your Own Need for your Pet !
Which I know is a mouthful, and it's more than that and I didn't want it to be just about, if you Love your Pet so much, you'd do anything to get them treatment.
Or If you don't have the Money, then You Don't Love Your Pet !
Because if you are here to get help, or catch a Glimpse of how to deal with Cancer, or whether your Dog is a viable candidate for Amputation and Chemotherapy. Then I already know you love your pet, so that is not what this piece is about ...... there is no Judgement Here, and as always I am talking through, my own thoughts and parts of my life stories.
I just want to talk about the reactions that I have come across, from my own Family Friends and People in Passing. Talking about how they feel with me paying out so much, for just a few months more with Fizzles. Justifying using all my profit on a 9 week old Puppy worth £650-00, as was the case for our Milly Mooz. Who's story is told in the last 3 Posts on this blog, telling her Miracle Tale and her Saviour, who's decision after a 15 minute meeting with Milly and I, that led to his wonderful Gift, in Giving Milly the Chance of Life <3

This is something that I feel very hard to understand, because the Love for my animals leads me to, Jump in Boiling Water without Armbands nor Kevlar Clothing ! Its also leads me to get to a point, where I would almost have no lengths, that I wouldn't go to ????
It is something that I feel very strongly about, as I would never have been able to Keep My Fizzly, with me for as long as I did. In fact in all eventualities, I would have probably had to have her put to sleep when she was 15 Months Old. When her Crutiate Ligament went, in the same Leg that, she developed the Bone Cancer in 5 Years Later !! I must admit the Irony of paying for the BEST operation, for the Crutiate Surgery instead of Amputating the affected Leg, is NOT lost on me.
Especially as Fizzles may still be here, had she had that leg removed ...... instead of having the leg altered and fixed !! Its something that has made me wonder, especially once you start writing things down on Paper, or in my case Laptop !! When writing you seem to spend more time wondering, and contemplating and my contemplation is, had I not had her insured I would have picked the Amputation, and then ..........
Would Fizzly still be with me now ???

This is something that I have found confusing, and sometimes really upsetting, and the fact that the Site's I have used are supposedly, Animal friendly based and Non~Judgemental !! The fact that anyone would judge someone else's stories or their actions is beyond me. It goes against the grain of what I was trying to achieve in the first place, which is helping others who find themselves, in the same place as Fizzle's and I during her Battle with Cancer.
I have spoken about the trials and tribulations, that I have found myself in, while starting this Blogging Lark from the beginning. But what I have found is that one site in particular, seemed to attract some seriously judgemental, and in my eyes not so nice people ! When I made the choice to have animals in my life, I take that very seriously. This is how I feel everyone should be, when they take the monumental decision, to bring an animal into their lives and homes.
It's something that I try to instil into my puppy families, that Insurance is a major part of being a good pet owner, as we are not all as lucky as our Milly was that day. The question is though when does it become too much ....... I believe this is a personal choice !! Its when your head must overtake your heart, but with insurance this is something that will ensure that your heart will always be able to win ! Its just a shame that not all battles can be won, and not all hearts will be left unbroken </3
