TOO much TIME on my hands...

and MHS do NOT go hand in hand!! Thankfully we can't afford another right now, or I would have Tillie's 1/2 sister right now... LOL a gorgeous black girl with white paws... sigh....

oi vey. someone please tell me all the BAD things about adding another puppy ... and no one freak out, it will NOT happen for a very long time, I just need something to keep me busy, make me laugh, .... Help me stop dreaming and ENJOY the sweet peaceful life we have with miss tillie!!

A puppy is sooo much work. At 14 weeks I'm almost tearing my hair out and sooo sick of being stuck in the kitchen he is a cryer and howler lol

Thank God he made puppies so cute lol

ps...Hope you are feeling better and test results go well

Outside to potty train every 30 - 45 minutes when puppy's awake, after play time and eating. Going through the chew everything in sight stage and all the energy that puppies have not to mention adolescence stage. Oh shoot, even with that there are times when I still want a puppy.

I do wonder if we had another if they would tire each other out instead of me? lol Our children are grown and married. Think it makes a difference with no children around.

Wish I could persuade hubby, me and Cooper really need another. He laughs because he is still getting over the *sticker shock* as he puts it

Sounds like you don't need a puppy right now Tammy. I know, I have been fighting MHS for years. Some day I want another puppy. But let me just say... Double the vet bills, double the food, double the grooming (huge...oh my aching back and feet.) sometime double the potty breaks, Double the boarding cost (huge!) And two little faces wanting you to do things for them lol. I love my boys to pieces, and they do keep each other company... But they are opposites... Cash loves to play, Jasper not so much, Jasper loves his walks, Cash not so much... So we are Cash's playmate...and Jasper takes us on walks.
Yes you also get double "nose checks.". And double eye licks...and threw is nothing like watching them wrestle... Ohhh. Stop. Look what you are making me do. IWAP. NO.

I have the right to remain silent (on this issue). Anything I do say, can and will be used in a court of law when they institutionalize me for insanity. I'll leave this one to the others.
