It was a valid point to make, and was my first thought as well on reading the post. That said, Mike and I both work full time, but we managed our schedules well with our little Bucky when we got him so that he was only alone for a few hours max. It's doable. We're getting our new Hav puppy this week, and we're both looking at what time we can take off from work to be home with our pup. A lot of dog owners responsibly manage work and puppies, and there were some excellent suggestions for Junior. Not everyone has the flexibility Mike and I do.
Maybe a neighbour or a friend could come in Junior?
Would be nice to see some pics
