Pet insurance - scam or great???

My vet friend totally loves pet insurance, but i've heard from some owners that they think it's a scam and we would be better off just putting the money aside. What is your experience? (my details inside)
Our situation is we just got our first dog of our own, a 1 year old female black lab. I make decent $$ in IT, and the g/f is in school for about another year or two. I can cover normal expected expenses just fine while she's in school (and we're still single income), but anything major would be a problem - hence looking into insurance. We plan to be very active with her (running, hiking, etc) too if that up's the 'unexpected accident' percentage.
So i assume people will say it's worth it... Do you suggest a certain company or a certain plan of that companies (looks like each one has multiple levels covering all different things) THANKS!
