|shooter can be a very nervous dog,
and if we go somewhere where he can't come
and he has to stay with someone (he would NEVER do well w. boarding)
he won't even eat the whole time we are gone.
and will resist going out to the bathroom at all costs.
we even had him staying with someone he LOVED while she was at our house, and we took him to her house a few times prior.
so i thought maybe we should get another dog so that
if we go somewhere...shooter wouldn't be alone in a new environment
...maybe convincing him it is okay to eat and everything.
that theory has not been tested yet, we took them with us
on our vacation.
anyways, it took a TON of convincing my boyfriend.
we have a pretty small apartment, but are moving into a house
with a nice big yard soon. i saved up the money i needed for sumo
plus some. and i sat down and said, this dog will do well in an apartment OR our nice big yard, i have the money for him, all i have to do is tell the breeder i want him&send payment.
(i was BEGGING his breeder to "just wait one more day, i know i can get a yes!" because there was someone else looking at sumo also, but she waited for me. :whew:
on my birthday he said i could get sumo.
and all 4 of us couldn't be happier!
