So now that I am settled into my house and 95% unpacked (still got the sewin room to do), I want a dog to complete the little happy family.
I am thinking of getting one that is not a puppy, but a year or so older and house trained. Trevor and I are out of the house working at the same time 2 days of the work week, so the dog will be on his/her own for 8 hours during that time. Besides those two days, someone will always be around. Come the Fall season Mum will be retired, living in my basement apartment (actually her moving day is this Monday), so someone will be around all the time then.
I want to get the dog early Spring/Summer so he/she is used to the garden and lots of walks.
Any other advice?? all is greatly appreciated. I am thinking of getting the dog through the local SPCA.
