She is seriously cute, dude :3 Congratulations!
lol I dont get it! I always hear about black dogs being the hardest to get adopted, and there was Gypsy, bright orange and adorable sitting in a sea of black dogs and puppies and ONLY the black dogs were getting adopted! poor thing has been growing in a small concrete cage, and her bones are starting to warp a little as a result her legs are looking a little wonky, so hopefully we can get her straightend out ASAP, my mom definatly did not want another dog, but even she could see what spending a very formulative time in those conditions have started to do to her and wanted her out.Awwwe ... she is really adorable ... I cannot believe she was sitting there so long without anyone wanting her. Congratulations on her! Good luck with the two pups. I raised two pups together ... it is extra everything ... but in the end it is all worth it IMO.
Haha well, chances are your're lifestyle might be better suited to a bunch of dogs like that - mine.. not so much, unforunately. I really LOVE the change of pace of having an energetic, playful, affectionate pup, in comparison to my laid-back, low maintenance, not so energetic Shiba.. they're both incredibly smart and I enjoy them both because they are so different, but living in an average-sized house, with an average-sized yard in the suburbs, us being the kind of couple that travels a lot, work a lot, etc I just don't have time for more of them like Thumper. I could easily handle 3 Shibas - no problem, just because of how low maintenace they are, and I do hope to add another Shiba to my crew in the next few years once Thumper is matured and settled down a bit..but Thumper eats up a lot of time and energy every day so I would be crazy to challenge myself more with raising two or more hyper energetic dogs at a time LOL. If I wasn't gone at work 10 hours a day, and travel as often as I do, I would gladly dedicate my time and energy to having more dogs, I really do look forward to them each and every day, but I gotta admit I enjoy having a break from them occasionally too lol.lol packmomma, given that I have 2 border collies, 1 Toller, 1 JRT x, and now 2 ACD X German Shepherds,you post officially make me feel crazy! but what can I say, I LIKE crazy, energetic smart dogs Gem is perfect, exatly what I was looking for, high energy, playful, friendly, brilliant..why not have have 2 of her? lol
