Lincoln, Scout, and the Cocker makes 3
We are dogsitting my friend's 6 mos. old cocker spaniel puppy this week...it is WAY more work than when we had Lincoln's brother, Cocoa, here recently, just because he is very much a PUPPY and a different breed (they play differently). In general, Lincoln stays out of the fray while the puppy and Scout "work it out."
The first night, he was barking in his crate like crazy until I moved the crate next to my bed and put my fingers through the door at 2 AM...Thankfully he's well potty trained (no pee accidents, some poo). He is afraid of new adults and will bark and bark and bark if something bothers him...like my vacuum cleaner....
He's a very sweet boy all in all. But this experience of having THREE dogs (compared to having Cocoa here before) has shown me that having THREE can be easy or not so easy, depending on the actual third dog and the dynamics....
So, I think I'm pretty happy with TWO for now!
