OK, yeah, I'm cured. I used to think I wanted a second dog. They have fun when they are playing in the yard, racing around, neck biting, etc. But when they're in the house, and bored....not so much. Two dogs is twice as much work as one. Actually, I'm thinking it might be three times as much work as one. And then there's the jealousy. I thought it would be Lacey who would be jealous. No. Lily is the one who gets jealous of any attention I give Lacey. Then Lacey gets torqued at that, and then neck biting and howling and moaning and groaning ensues....IN the house. Lily is a wonderful dog, but I can't wait for her to go home.
