To pet owner Donna Hill, "She is just as much a part of my family as any child is to another family. Kattle is her everything. You can't beat the unconditional1 love. The same from Roxy's owner  Jeremy Bret. She's our baby. She is cute but expensive. The first month we had her, I mean, we spent almost in the range of 2000 dollars.
Both Roxy and Kattle also go part time to doggy day care. Their days here, something their owners could eventually deduct2 on their taxes.

To have a tax credit would be a great thing. A great thing to some maybe, totally crazy to others.
At a time when Congress is dealing3 with reforming health care, saving jobs, and sending more troops to Afghanistan, a Michigan Congressman4 is proposing this, the HAPPY Act. An acronym5 for humanity and pets partnered through the years. Pet owners could deduct up to 3500 dollars in expenses. Only 150  less than parents deduct for children. The only thing not included : the cost to buy or adopt the animal.

The question still is who would qualify for this? What if your pet,is, say, penny here, a dumbo rat. Would you get the full tax credits? What the bill specifies6 is for domesticated7 animals but legislature might wanna be a little bit more specific about exactly what that means.

The way it is now supplies for your bald python, your bearded dragon or gerbil or hamster would qualify. Really ? A lot of pet owners will want tax breaks, even though he owns pinfold pets. John Couch here thinks this bill is bull. The way I look at it is, if they can't afford the pet they shouldn't have the pet. He worries about hoarding8 animals just to get a break. I don't think we should be, you know, paying people to keep pets. Back at Dogs all day, owner Anita Williams likes the concept of a tax credit. People may look at it as a luxury. She is skeptical9 though that it'll actually happen. I like it I think it's a long shine ,but something Roxy's dad , "definitely give it a chance " , and Kattle's mum, "I buy a lot of things for ..." hope it will go from a long shot to the newest law. "Bye, thank you."
