My husband doesn't want another dog. We have a one year old bichon frise, Izzie, who was hard to train and is very hyper. We both work full-time so she is alone pretty much all day during the week. I have a friend who works at an animal shelter near where I live and she sent me a picture of a dog, Scooter, who is having a hard time being adopted, because he's 6 years old and people generally want puppies. He's house-trained and crate-trained, and I think he'd be a good companion for our dog during the day. And look at his face!!! How can you say no to that? But my husband continually says no everytime I ask if we can get another dog. I love Izzie and with all her energy, she loves being around other dogs and I think it would help her during the day so she doesn't get so lonely. And this one is even house-broken so we wouldn't have to go through that drama again. Anyways, anyone else had to fight their DH for another animal in the house? I want to make him see that this can be a great thing for both us and our current dog!
