Are 2 dogs really better than 1?
We're debating and debating about getting Ruby a new brother or sister sometime in the next year. I'm already talking with a few breeders that I got from the ckcsc.org website just to get some info about their litters. Ruby takes a long time to warm up to other dogs, and I'm concerned she'd be upset if we brought home another dog. It's just that we're both gone a lot (only a few days a week), and I was wondering if it would be better for her to have a companion to keep her company. Any advice?? Do some of you that have more than 1 think it's best that way? I'm just really in limbo about this. We're not even thinking about getting another puppy until Ruby has gotten completely housetrained and has developed the habits that we would want a puppy to follow. I would just feel better if we could make a decision and start the process of searching for the right breeder for us.
