I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered, but I couldn't find it. I don't know if its wrong to talk about this, but I'm trying to budget my next few years out, and factor in the cost of raising the dog. I have all the numbers in including insurance and vet bills, but I don't know how much to factor in for feeding. How much do people spend on food? Is there a difference in cost in the puppy years (more expensive food, making it more expensive to feed the dog or less food consumed, making it less expensive?).
