well if you can afford a pet ( = dog I assume, not a goldfish) you cant be that badly off. I would like to have a pet but cant afford one, with all the vets fees etc. Last week saw a guy begging out side Lidl and he had a well looked after some kind of semi pedigree dog ( not just a mutt ) and it was truly well fed. I dont intend to give the likes of him any money.
