    DefaultAm I crazy?

    So you guys know I adopted Koko (6yr) 2 months ago. I also have a 12 yr. old preteen, a 10 yr old and a 1 year old (all human). To make matters worse my husband has to work out of town till March. The closest family I have are in Arkansas, so I'm pretty much doing everything by myself. And I still want to adopt another Lab. I search rescues daily...torturing myself. We currently rent due to my husbands job relocating us so often and the way I spoil my dog financially(expensive food, pet insurance, etc) it would be a little difficult to afford another one but that doesn't stop me by wanting another one soooooooooooo bad. What is wrong with me???

    I do it all of the time too. Constantly looking on Petfinder, feeling terrible that I can't adopt . . . I don't know why I do it to myself either.

    I think you will find that we all do it here. We just love our labs so much we want more and more of them. I'm always looking for a third, but then stop and realize what that would mean to the family. I also have three cats so my vet bills are not cheap. I don't want to adopt another one and then have to skimp on the care. Know what I mean?

    Yep I am also guilty! Another dog just isn't in the cards right now. We hope to be making a move in the next year or so, and we freq. take off on one or two night trips. Sammi does well, but two would make it a little more difficult to make those spur of the moment trips. I do know once we get moved, hopfully with a little more property we will have at least one more. So until then I look and torture myself.

    I think we all do that. I'd love to have a chocolate but know that my girls wouldn't really share mom and dad well with a third one so I don't go there. However, like you, it doesn't stop me from looking, wanting and dreaming. Labs are like M&M's. One don't cut it, two is better but more would be best.

    I give you credit, you know it's not something you can do right now. It's just living with the longing for another one.

    Hell - I could afford a rescue but finding the time to train another dog and still lavish love on my current bed mates just rules that out !

    Carry on dreaming but don't be tempted !
