3 dogs in your house?
this involves the german shepherd hunt i have been on. i have had dogs all my life and currently have 2 cairn terriers (wizard of oz.) i finally found the breeder i will buy from AND the actual puppy i want. i've already named her and have been in touch with the breeder and was preparing to put downpayment down today when my wife decides she doesn't want a 3rd dog. i take care of them and pay all their bills, along with most other bills. she says we have to co-exist and 3 dogs is too much with our 2 year old son. she also isn't crazy about all the shedding. well, i'll give her that...however...i think she's being a little unfair. i take care of our dogs now: haircuts, bathing, vet bills, you name it. she lets them out in the backyard here and there.
in her defense, there would be the training and $$$, which isn't a good thing, but to her it isn't open to discussion which really is what bothers me. she went so far as saying if i get the dog she will leave. i wanted to remind her the extra luggage is in the basement if needed. i'm still thinking about this. granted, she is right to a point, however, i do all the work. she says when our guys unfortunately pass, then she doesn't care...which, is stupid, since there will still be the shedding thing.
so, if anyone has been in a similar situation, 3 dogs with child, etc, i would like to hear how "difficult" it is. thanks
