I've had Ruby for about 2 months now…and I'm thinking of adding a second B. Ruby (will be 3 in November) is super high energy, into everything, loves people (doesn't love being left alone), getting better w/random dogs that run up to her on the street...all in all, she's adjusted great to being an only dog and show dog retiree.
When I originally chose her, I picked her high energy to give me an idea of whether I could handle a second B adult or puppy. Needless to say, things are going so well that I'm thinking I could handle a second one and that it would be good for Ruby to have a companion. There is a 5yo male that is a bit lower key than Ruby that I'm thinking of adding and the breeder thinks they'd both be fine together...neither is alpha.
I'm thinking it can't be that much more work to have 2 vs. 1...and that is where I need advice. I'm Ruby's sole provider and care taker...so all walks, bike rides, runs, play, vet, food I do it all. I could see walking 2 together, but I can't see doing the bike w/2 (so I'd probably do one at a time). I have a large fenced in dog run (half the yard) that I only let her out in when I'm either in there with her or out in the yard...so 2 could rough house nicely in there.
Anyway, I've read every thread on here when others were going to add another B. My situation is slightly different as I'm single and the sole provider.
Any thoughts you could give would help. Thanks in advance. Kim
