To dog or not to dog?

Okay, so that is a weird way of saying it ;)

I have recently succumbed to the puppy dog eyes of not one but TWO chihuahua's!

My dilemna... HOW in the world am I ever going to be there for these two adorable characters?!

I just work way too much and with that dear DH hi-tailing it out of here for that all too 'wonderful' place called Iraq, how am I to care for these little tykes?



As much as I have fallen in love with these cuties, I'm afraid I'm going to have to say no to keeping them. It's breaking my heart.

These two were dropped of at the Humane Society a few weeks ago. DH found them when he was going there to get the now 7 mo. old kitten 'altered', he saw that they had these chihuahuas. When I inquired about them, I was talked into a week trial with them.

Now it's decision time. To keep or to not keep.

Do I dare send them back to the possibility of being put to sleep???? Can I care for them the way they need to be cared for?

Don't get me wrong, they are practically perfect. They hold it in until I get home - no messes. They are absolute cuddle bugs. They are not yappy or hyper. They are in a word - adorable.

But, can I provide them with all the love they need?

Please chime in - do tell me what you would do - please?

Okay, so I know it is much easier for me to say this, because while i will be able to help out, it isnt my full responsibility, but i say how can you give them away? At the same time, i know you work alot, and are worried about leaving them so much, I can come by a couple times a week until Jason gets home, and then we will be living there... but the first couple months might be lonely for them... so i dont know... i do love them and hate to see them go, but this decision is yours. Good luck!

I'm no dog expert so take this for what it is worth. Is your concern that you won't be able to spend enough time with them? Since there are two of them, aren't they able to keep each other company? Or does it not work that way with dogs?

So....did they stay??? They are really cute. Maybe there is something in the air because I've been thinking alot about getting a dog (considering a chihuahua, chinese-crested mix) and I'm not really a pet person. Hope you are finding your way out of your scrapping slump. I'm starting to get the itch again...could be the sneak peeks of new products that is making me want to scrap. Or maybe since I recovered most of my photo files after my hard-drive crash. Miss you! HUGS!
