    Default Nurse Job and balance life with your Bulldog.

    I am a CNA with job opportunities to work 12 hour shifts with 4 days off. Before , I consider getting another dog. How do you balance your work life with that many hours a day and your dog? I donít want to leave him or her alone for that length of time . The hospital is very close to my home thatís a big plus! I havenít applied to any 12 hour shifts at the moment.

    Looking for recommendations

    We have an office job, but a little under an hour commute, one way. Which has us gone for 10 hours.

    We have a pet sitter come midday for 30 mins. Potty/play and Lewis works from home on Fridays.

    I work from home but most weekends I’m out working n gone for a good 7-8 hrs. You won’t able to do this with a puppy unless you bring the puppy to have it babysit or pay someone babysit at your house for 12hrs cause of puppy needs. Having chosen Jake, Duke’s brother was much easier as he was already potty trained. I still crate him while I’m gone them long hours. It’s a big decision to have a dog n work long hours. Wouldn’t be fair to neither.

    Good idea , I can always get a pet sitter to come in for 30 minutes during the mid day or afternoon before I am home.
    I to get another rescue.

    Good job!!! I know it’s extremely hard to lose our fur babies and wanting to replace them not long after. I know I needed a break. If it wasn’t for Nyala laying in front of the back door cause it was Duke’s last exit and waiting for days n not moving, I sure wouldn’t have gotten a 2nd one. But you know, Jake helped/s a lot of the healing. Keeps you busy n you move on.

    Can’t wait to see photos

    Right now, I am just looking before I get back into being a bulldog mom again. I miss Porkchop tremendously! My grieving still kicks in and I lose it. She will never be replaced my one and only PC
    When I am ready, it will come from Southern California Bulldog Rescue.

    I became a foster mom to a six year old male English Bulldog. I just got him yesterday. Everything is new to him.

    He does have a very habit , humping. I used a squirt bottle to keep off my leg.

    He loves to cuddle but he takes it to a higher level. Heís a love machine , I asked him donít you get tired? Lol

    He brings me joy after losing my sweet Porkchop. Sheís gone but not forgotten.
