Cost of Gas to drive down there: $100
Cost of dinner out with family: $80
Cost of friend dog sitting your 3 dogs: $0
Cost of coming home to find the German Shepherd ate a green bottle of paint after the friend left for the last time that day? AND that she chewed all over the living room rug that left green paw prints everywhere? And after 2 hours of cleaning and scrubbing STILL looks like a leprechaun massacre occurred? PRICELESS.
