Hi All. I'm thinking of getting a dog, i'm only at the beginning of my thought process on this, the reason that i'm so hesitant is that my partner and I both work full time. Is it cruel for us to get a dog and leave him alone for up to 8 hours day? Is it a definite no? Do any of you dog owners work and leave your dog home alone? Please let me know your thoughts, we had a Yorkie when I was younger and I loved having him. He was left alone in the house a lot during the week and seemed fine with it.
