Is it time???

MHS has been hitting me hard over the past month.
We're going through quite a lot as a family still and so I keep putting off adding another dog thinking that in a few months we'll be more emotionally stable and better able to keep up with the demands of another full time pet which is the rational,logical decision but I can't help but worry about poor little Todders being left all alone all day while I'm working.
I went to work today for the first time since Joe left.
Right now I'm only working once in a while as a fill in for a friend who has an in home daycare but in October she'd like to bring me on full time as a partner..which is perfect for now.
Her home is in our school district and so the kids can ride the bus to and from school and I'll still get to spend time with them everyday.
I've found another Smoothcoat Hav at a rescue about 2 hours from me and I keep fighting the impulse to e-mail them about him.
Todd would be so happy to have a buddy and I would feel better knowing that he's got someone to entertain him during the long days alone...but then I remind myself that we are only three months into this and even if our situation is pretty stable emotionally the kids and I are pretty beat up still.
What to do...what to do???

How cute would it be to have 2 smooth coats!! I think you presented your argument to get another very well.
Wait-you don't have to ask permission!
Maybe another dog will add some diversion and even more happy times for the kids.
You are doing soo great Eva.

Okay...I e-mailed..lol
I figured that it couldn't hurt
All that I know as of now is that he's young (whatever that means) playful, a cuddler, gets along well with kids, cats and dogs and isn't a jumper.
He's solid cream except for some black under his nose...he's a cutie

Cute! Think hard before you commit, not trying to influence either way.

So cute! I also have this MHS! That sounds like a fun job. Although I do think the dogs just sleep and hibernate while we are gone.

Hmmmm...housetrained??
Ya' know, they didn't say anything about that on the website..lol
I guess that I'll have to ask when and if they e-mail me back.
I'm so used to potty training dogs at this point that it wouldn't be a deal breaker if he wasn't.
I'd have until October to get him adjusted to all of the new rules of the house. We'll play it by ear and see what they say...if it sounds like he's a good match maybe set up a meet and greet over the weekend and who knows??

Oh Eva he is a adorable. Can you take Todd for a visit and make sure they will like each other? ONly you can know what is right for you and the kids. Although if you are working full time then training is a little harder.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

He is a sweetie Eva. You are an amazing lady! Good luck to you, your children and your furbaby (furbabies).
