    I went to the SPCA today, to take a look at the dogs...Awwww I wanted to take them ALL home!!..

    I have been thinking of getting another dog, just a small one though, I can take the dog to work with me. The only thing is....TRIXIE!!

    I don't know how good she will be?..She gets along great with small dogs..She loves playing with Pepper at my parents house.

    I thought this would be good for her, having another dog around, someone to play with?

    Than also, I don't know if shes better just being the only dog??

    I am also moving in March, going to try and buy my own place..So maybe getting one than would be a better idea??

    But I am soooo bad!!..I seen some I like and I WANT THEM NOW..haha!!

    I love dogs :eek: I miss not having many around..Since, when I lived at home we had 5!!!..lol

    Honestly, I wouldn't get another dog with Trixie being so aggressive towards them. ESPECIALLY not a small dog, that would have a harder time defending itself against her should she decide to attack it.

    Its only to our dog Bella, she gets along great with the small dogs, and Shilo.

    But she loves little dogs.

    I think i am going to wait anyways.

    So it's okay that she is only DA to one dog? :confused:

    I think you really need to work on that and if she does prove okay around that ONE dog then MAYBE get another dog... no sense jeopordizing another dog's health/safety just because you want another dog, right? I mean, good for you for wanting to adopt, but at what expense?
