I posted something like this a few months ago only my post was about wanting the 4th one and people told me it was alot of work etc. They were right--lol. Of course I've been dealing with one that just recently had sm surgery. 3 wasn't bad at all but I must admit getting the 4th one is alot more work. I think it also depends on the personalities. Our 4th was almost 3 years old when we got her and also a little hyper which makes it a little harder. Do I regret it? Nope. Love them all. You need either a blenhem or ruby in my opinion. lol. In a way for us getting Chelsea has been a blessing as there's only so much of me to go around with this deal with Abbey and Chelsea and Bentley are very close. Chelsea thinks she's his mother I think--she cleans his face etc. and they play all the time. I say go for it!!! I'd also recommend pet insurance. We never had it until a few months ago and I'd never have another animal without it. We've had close to 5,000 in vet bills. Chelsea and Bentley are insured but was too late for Abbey. Its pretty dang cheap considering the alternative.
oops forgot to mention--I can hold all 3 also--one on each side and Bentley is a little guy and he just kind of squeezes in where he can--lol. Luckily our shih tzu is not a cuddler at all or I wouldn't have gotten the 3. For me all I can hold is 3 of them and they all like their attention you know.
