My friends bitch has had puppies and I am very tempted to offer one a home. I have grown up with dogs and worked in a boarding kennels when I was in school, attended a few puppy classes with my school librarian (long story!) when I was in school, and generally always been into dogs. I have been doing my research on the net about training etc etc and know I would give a dog a fantastic home (well, I hope!). I love walking dogs, and live near a park, countryside, beaches etc, so no problems in that respect. I understand the demands owning a dog puts on you, and everything to expect! Now, the only problem I have is that both me and my boyfriend work full time. I live close to work, and can get home on my dinner break from work, but I am worried about leaving a dog alone during the day. I would really really love to get one, and in all respects feel ready and willing. I have had advice off some people who had this same dilemma and got round it, and other people saying no, no no! Please help!
