Should we or shouldn’t we?

Pros and cons of adopting another dog.


PROS

CONS

  • Doggy friend for Coal (#1 Pro)
  • Desire to rescue sweet lab after her family gave her away because she was “too much work”
  • New running buddy with a lot of energy
  • Likes to play fetch (Coal, not so much)
  • More dogs = more to love
  • More dog hair to sweep/vacuum (more cleanup in general)
  • More cost
  • Sometimes a struggle to get up early enough to walk one dog, now two?
  • Unknown/unpredictable animal in the house.  The one we have is pretty darn good.
  • Small house for one dog and 2 big boys – how much more room will second dog occupy?
  • Will pet sitter take second dog?  Most likely yes

What would you do?
