I got my precious furbaby at the animal sanctuary. She was a rescue dog, but she is the one who rescued me. I can't imagine life without her. She was a year old when I got her, so I didn't have to do the training stuff. She's lying next to my desk right now, snorking gently.I have, in fact was looking at miniatures online just yesterday.
It's all the training, vetting, fencing yards, etc that I can't face.
Plus would a dog help lift my depression.... or just depress the dog
Doesn't seem fair to the dog.
I've always said that..... for 23 years, but now it's here.....Pros and Cons for sure.
