Aargh! Having finally said yes about a year ago to us getting a dog my DH is now having a wobble! Please tell me if I'm being an idiot!!! Our youngest child is 6. I don't work so I have time to exercise and train. He's worried about the restrictions it would place on us (eg we do have day trips.) I reckon we could get someone in once the dog is older if we want to go out for the day. Walk first. My mum lived round the corner so she could let it out and sit here for an hour! Walk again when we get home. Holiday. Kennels ok surely. Upsetting our cats. They are 8 month old cats. I reckon they could adjust. And then my mum started saying I couldn't ever leave a sight hound and cats alone. Ever! I'm just doubting myself I think. This is a dog breed I have loved for years. I know this breeder so I trust them. But it's a massive commitment. Thanks if you made it to the end of this garbled mess!
