We have been talking about getting a bigger dog for awhile. We have two sweet little mutts that we love to pieces. They are littermates and 2 1/2 years old. My husband has always wanted a big dog too, but I've always been reluctant. Well, we live in the country and have had some security concerns and my hubby works nights. I've been holding out because I really didn't want a puppy and a pregnancy at the same time. However, TTC has been controlling our lives and making our decisions for 7 months now....so I guess its time to let go a little and leave some things to fate! I am so excited about something for the first time in a long time. I go pick her out tomorrow and get to bring her home Dec. 29!
Don't worry animal lovers, I'm well versed in the financial and time commitments required with owning and caring for dogs and this puppy won't be "replaced" with a human baby someday
ETA: I'm not worried about getting a big dog, just about potty training again!
