Default They are addicting!

When I first got my chi pup, everyone told me it wouldn't be long before I wanted to add more chi's to the family. I didn't really understand how but now I do. I'm already wanting to get a friend for Ava! They're so addicting. Anyone else experiencing this?

I desperately want to get Toby a little sister. However, I know the time isn't right, so I'm waiting. But I do have chi puppy fever, for sure.

Phew! Glad I'm not alone here! I do wanna wait since having a chi pup and a big dog is a handful. I got my pup from a friend of mine but my next one I want to get from a reputable breeder with papers, maybe a long hair? Idk. They're so precious I want like 5 of them snuggling in bed with me! Haha

Provided that the dogs are well socialized and are part of a balanced group, multiples often aren't much harder to care for than one. This is coming from someone who worked at a doggy daycare with groups of 30 or more dogs, though; LOL. If you have the space, time, and finances to care for AND train them properly, a large group of dogs can be a lot of fun. The more dogs I have, the more personality I "see" as each one responds differently to another, and they all play off and compliment one another well. It is a lot of diligent work; but one very well worth it. Just yesterday my neighbor, who had their dog out, made a point to tell me she was impressed how mine respect boundaries.

All that said, I had to wait a long time before I could have and manage 8 dogs!! In those days I worked 7 days a week for a vet clinic and knew I wasn't in a position to have that many. It takes a lot of credit to be able to resist that urge, so kudos to all of you!!

Really it's about knowing YOUR limit; and that's going to be different for each person and their lifestyle. =)

I worked at a doggy day care too! I must say that the little guys are easier even in packs. Working 10 hour days in the big dog area with 25-30 dogs 50+ pounds wasn't always a good time.

I agree that as long as they are taken care of and loved there is no problem.

Right now, I am a full time law student. I may be traveling abroad this summer. My mom has agreed to take Toby but I think another would push her over the edge. Technically, I could afford to pay for another dog but I want to pay off student loans and whatnot first.

Although, if I fell in love with the right girl I could make it work. And if Eden's girl was up for adoption, that would be hard to resist

I can definitely relate! Ever since adopting 2 year old Chica last Spring, I've found myself really wanting another chi. I had no idea what great dogs they are but, now that I know, it's hard not to want another, especially so that Chica could have a little buddy. We're at our city's legal limit of dogs though (3...we also have a toy poodle and a yorkie-poo, who are very bonded/best buds), and at our own limit too, as far as financially being able to provide for them (higher rated food, clothing for cold weather, vet care, etc). So as much as we'd love to rescue another chi, we know the responsible thing for us at this point is to not. It's hard though at times, especially since I would LOVE a chi puppy !

Yep, I swore it would be one pup and then five months after getting Lady an opportunity presented itself and I got Prince. Both are fabulous pups and I love having two. I think two is my number but two is better than one.
