I stay at home, but I know many people on here that deal w/the same issues. Do you have her crate trained?!! Or what about crating an area for her to hang out for the day?!! I would say that two dogs would make for company, but it may turn into two dogs destroying your home while you are gone… Have you considered hiring a pet sitter to come by your house during the day to let her out and play w/her for awhile?!!
