Being a pet parent is expensive before you even figure in the cost of getting your pet in the first place. For some people, adoption is the way to go, but for others, picking out a purebred puppy from a responsible breeder is the way they want to go.
If you’re puppy shopping from a breeder, though, and seeking an American Kennel Club certified pup, be prepared to shell out a good bit of cash, especially for breeds like Samoyeds, Tibetan Mastiffs, and Cavalier King Spaniels.
We’re down to have any puppies in the house at all, but if one of these spendy pups is your cup of tea, here’s what the dog experts at Rover expect you to spend.
My Day Is 100% Better After Watching This Beagle Play Piano (and Sing!) For a Dancing Baby
Do you know what your day needs? This video of Buddy Mercury the Beagle playing piano while his cute back-up dancer bops along to his tunes. Originally posted back in April, this sweet duo is going viral again after posts by Missy Elliott and Allison Janney on social media. It’s an adorable video no matter when you see it!
Buddy Mercury is a rescue dog with a popular Instagram account and songs on iTunes. He was adopted back in 2016 by Laurie and Glen Wolfe from New York, and kicked off his own love of music when he saw Laurie play the piano. Buddy certainly packs a lot of passion into each performance – just listen to him howl! Watch the full video above to see the musical magic ensue, and then keep reading to see even more clips from Buddy’s performances.
On a Scale of One to These Photos of Miley Cyrus at a Pumpkin Patch, How Much Do You Love Fall?
It’s that time of year again: once October begins, it officially becomes socially acceptable to start putting together the <Halloween costume you came up with in May, have Hocus Pocus playing on an endless loop, and unleash the inner Fall freak you typically suppress in every other season. Miley Cyrus, we’ve just learned, appears to be one of those people.
Shortly after returning from her thirst trap vacation disguised as a desert retreat – and we truly mean that in the most complimentary way possible – the singer sprinted to the nearest pumpkin patch to celebrate the start of October. Miley did it all: she posed in front of pumpkins, ventured into the petting zoo, and braved a haunted house filled with “potential partners.” Miley noted, “Felt like I was on The Bachelorette.”
If that cozy Fall feeling hasn’t hit you yet, looking at photos from Miley’s outing might get you into the right mindset. Check them out ahead.
Target’s New Loyalty Program Is Here, and It’s Another Reason to Add Extras Into Your Shopping Cart
Target has announced its own loyalty program, and I suddenly feel a lot less guilty about having my eye on the Dollar Spot all the time. If you’ve ever seen the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic then you probably understand how I react whenever I see a sign that says “DEAL” or “SALE” – I pretty much lose it and let my inner Target Lady take control. Luckily, Target Circle, which launches nationwide on Oct. 6, comes with a whole cart-full of incentives for shopping, including birthday rewards, so something tells me my weekly Target trip just became biweekly.
Anyone with a Target.com account, Cartwheel account, or RedCard credit or debit card will automatically be enrolled into the loyalty program for free, which allows non-RedCard holders to earn 1 percent back and anyone who does have a RedCard to earn 5 percent back on every purchase. To redeem any rewards, all you have to do is give your phone number at checkout or scan your Wallet barcode on the Target app. Pretty simple!
In addition to automatically receiving 5 percent off any Target run near your birthday, Target Circle also allows members one vote per transaction to have a say in where the company allocates its charitable contributions. The only catch? Earnings can’t be redeemed on certain purchases, including alcohol, dairy products, prescriptions, Same Day Delivery items, and gift cards. All in all, it’s still a pretty good deal – so catch me at Target loading up my cart with whatever catches my eye, including all of the cutest Halloween costumes, of course.
