|Just to clarify, I am well versed in the needs of a coonie and have trained all my dogs on a bike for exercise. I'm still not sure what I want, the third option is to bring one of my babies from home down to me. I'm military currently living in barracks. One stipulation I had before joining was that no way would I be joining if my babies suffered for it. My sister takes care of them. They are quite happy where they are, large fenced yard, each other to play with and they have lived in that house for most of their lives.
I miss my current babies very much but the idea of saving one that doesn't have a home is very appealing.
Don't worry, I know many of you will be asking, What happens to the dog if I deploy or change posts. The dog would be headed to join my sister back home is the answer. I love the military but many people who join take the sacrifice to far, meaning they give up their animals. Obviously, the call is very important and we need the numbers, but your pet shouldn't get thrown out for it.
Sorry for the sidetrack. I guess I'll know what to do when I go visit the kill shelter, if no one steals my heart, I'll go back to Polk or bring one of my babies down. But I doubt I can go into a kill shelter and not come out with a dog
