    Default Are we crazy or just blessed?

    Just wondering what everybody does with their EB while they're at work. I just got out of school when we got Goob so I was able to spend my entire day with him; training him and loving on him. About a month later, I got a part time job and Goob stayed in his crate while I was gone. Now, my husband and I have our own house and Goob is 3 years old. My husband doesn't want me to work full time so I can take care of the house and of course...Mr. Goob. Some people look at us like were crazy because I stay home....with our dog (no human children).

    My husband makes enough to run our household and I am still working part time. Crazy???

    Is anyone else a stay at home mom of an EB?

    For the first year, i took Billy with me everywhere and he slept in his crate at night. Now (he's almost 2), he would rather sleep the day away in his crate than jump in the car. I'm away a maximum 8 hours, but usually can swing by home for an hour or so for lunch.

    There's isn't a ton of time where the dogs have to be home alone but they stay in their crates when we do leave.

    You are definitely blessed, if you can do it, Why Not? You have the best of both worlds, who wouldn't want to stay at home and enjoy your baby, and snuggle time? And you can still get out and work part time, but because you want to, not because you have to. I say we're crazy for our bullies, and blessed to have them.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Blessed, definitely blessed. I have to travel next week and I skype with Bocephus so he knows I miss him.
    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    I'm home with our dogs, not that I can work anyway cos of permit issues but I think I'd probably not work full time even if I could... and that's ALL because of the bulldogs

    I think you are a very lucky person. I hope to be retired retired in the near future. Then I will be home with my bully kids except for an occassional round of golf.
