    Default Should I get a new pup?

    I found an adorabull male that has me itching to bring him home. Hubby and the kids are all rooting me on but....I am a little skeptical. That little face is calling me. Hubby definitely wants a boy this time around. I figured it would be best so we can avoid any fighting (hope so anyways). I think the biggest thing holding me back is the thought of house breaking again, well aside from the cost of the new pup. I think it would be great for Raven to have a playmate but I am worried about when we go on vacation, if we can't take them, if it will be too hard to get a sitter for two pups.

    Anyone have some input for me. Was it easier to potty train your second seeing as you had the first one already to show them the ropes?

    LOL...I know rough group to ask. There are so many pros and then the little cons jump up.

    I think it's on hold. I called the breeder and she wanted wayyyy more than I am ready to pay right now. My husband was laughing. He said since the pup is only 8 week old, give her a few more weeks of holding on to him and she will drop that price. LOL. I can see that...an expensive dog is up there with a nice luxury purchase and times are hard.

    Oh well guess I will go buy some more toys for Raven.

    Seriously, potty training depends on you and the pup. Banks was our second and she was a breeze because she just followed the schedule we set for Nitschke. As for vacations... I always line up family to stay at our house with them, but 1st choice is they go where we go.

    I have been checking out rescues as well but it's hard with them wanting a fully fenced yard. Mine is partially fenced as there is a shared drive with my one neighbor so they won't let me adopt Guess for now Raven will continue to be an only spoiled child.

    I figured the potty training would go a bit better since there would be a ready example for him. Last trip (cruise) my sister stayed the 9 days with her in our house. Wish they would allow you to take your pups on a cruise..lol. I can see it now, Raven and I up on the top deck sunning in the chairs.

    I think that if you have doubts, don't do it.
