February dog expenses

I’ve always been interesting in reading how much people spend on their dogs every month. When I was first starting in my journey of learning about dogs, reading posts about dog finances were also very helpful to me in my attempts at planning. (For example, M.C. at the House of Two Bows has always kept a very detailed log of her dog expenses, and you can find the archives here.)

To follow in this suit, I think it would be helpful for me, now that we have two large dogs, to keep track of how much I’m spending on them each month.

February was a blessedly cheap month for us! Kind of unusual. (No vet visits, no supplies, just food and treats.)

Date Item Source Spent
02/10/2014 Kibble (Taste of the Wild, Wetlands) and training treats Tractor Supply $51.59
 02/24/2014  Greenies  Tractor Supply  $10.52
 TOTAL  $62.11

Do you keep track of how much you spend on your pets? It is helpful to you? Or just depressing?
