Hi! I've posted a few threads about Luke, my little chihuahua/carin terrier, who has at least slight separation anxiety. I changed his name to Chico (Chi for short), because he's part Spanish, and he looks like a little man (Chico = boy in Spanish) with his dark facial markings! Within the next year I may want to add a pup to the family -- hoping that the lonilness he feels will be cured when I am away. Is this at all a bad idea? I can only imagine that his attention would be drawn to his buddy as opposed to myself when I leave. I work overnights, and I will be attending school in fall. When I'm sleeping in the daytime, and head off to school in the evenings (it will likely be only twice a week for a few hours) I believe Chico would benefit much from another canine kind in the home (it isn't just for him, I'd LOVE to have another dog!). I also think he really misses the two dogs of the home I'd adopted him from -- probably his litter as well. Surely I will need time to think about adding another pup into our home, but I really appreciate your guys' input!
