Puppy Sinking Fund Chart
When my daughter was in third grade (she’s a senior now), she desperately wanted a pet. Since my husband and son are both allergic to fur, we did a lot of research into pets we could all live happily with … and be able to breath around.
We had had fish and considered a bigger tank with a larger variety of fish but my daughter wanted a pet she could play with.
We contemplated a tortoise but quickly realized the space a tortoise would require was more than we had to spare.
A dog seemed much simpler but what about the allergies?
THEN, we discovered hypo-allergenic dogs were a thing!
Would a hypo-allergenic dog really work though?
We told our daughter if she saved enough to buy a hypo-allergenic dog, she could have one!
Hypo-allergenic dogs aren’t cheap!

When you print, I suggest using Card Stock for durability.
2. Determine how much you would like to save for your Puppy and write it on the Goal line.
3. Goal set and record a realistic date you would like to achieve your goal amount and add a Puppy to your family!
4. Divide your saving goal by 10.
5. Write each increment on the lines shooting off the graphic with the smallest on the bottom.
If you plan to save $500, you would write $50 on the bottom line, $100 on the next line, etc.
6. As you save, color in the lines!
Each increment consists of 10 lines to fill in. If you plan to save $500 and each increment represents $50, each line would represent $5. For every $5 you save, color in a line.
7. Make your Puppy Fund a part of your monthly budget!
If you would like to save $500 in 10 months, you need to incorporate $50 a month into your spending plan.
Our daughter saved every last cent she had until she had $450. That girl was determined!
She is now the proud owner of an 8-year-old Shihtzu Bichon whom our family adores!
Thankfully, the boys in the family have never had an allergic response to TeddiBear!
