Thoughts on me getting another dog
Think about my situation specifically. Gryff is 100% totally about me and me alone. He will have almost nothing to do with my husband or my son. He won't let either of them take him out for potty. He can be having a great time playing with my husband, but if I walk out of the room, he follows me. If I'm not home, he will wait for me by the door instead of hanging out with Chuck or Alec. My family feels cheated, as though they don't have a dog at all.
What do you think would happen if we got another dog? I am concerned that Gryff may get jelous and turn violent towards it or my son. What if it backfires and now I have two dogs that won't have anything to do with the rest of my family.
I really need some advice. I can't believe how expensive Gryff is turning out to be - especially if I have to pony up for another dog just to get the satisfaction of having a family dog.
My husband is starting to think we should do a trade in. Of course, I am not going to even discuss that. However yesterday Chuck and I were in the yard working and Gryff was by the front door whining. Alec went to pet him and got bit. I can't have that going on either.
What do you think?
