The present list is based on empirical values. The price for a DOG is unlimited. Although financial problems due to long vacation trips, demanding spouses or long-term stays by the mother-in-law usually resolve themselves by keeping a DOG, a DOG is thus reserved for the privileged. Remember, if on your next walk you come across a dirt-splattered person in rubber boots and several lively dogs, it is not an anti-social person, but at least the branch manager of the local savings bank. During a one-to-one conversation, he will ask you, smiling over the statements of your blocked current account:


"Didn't you know what a DOG like that cost?"
