wont agree to it! I do all of the training, walking, feeding, poop
scooping and everything! I want to get a rescue dog! I want to
provide a home to another lab who needs one, we have a nice
fenced in yard, and they get walked every day, and would have
two other labs to play with! Any ideas how to persuade hubby?
What is hubby's issue with adding a 3rd exactly? Expense? Time (his or yours)? Space?
My SU is not a huge dog lover but he lets me have them because he knows I love them. I could have as many as I want as long as they stay outside. Since I want my dogs to live with the family, I started with one then quietly brought in the 2nd thinking he wouldn't notice. It didn't work. I won't push it to add a 3rd...at least not right now. ;D
Really, unless everyone is on board for adding another dog, I wouldn't do it. It isn't fair to the dog.
He needs to tell you exactly WHY or else you can't understand why he's balking.
My husband loves animals, but I am the main caregiver. He would have been fine with 1, I wanted the second, and held me back for several years on the 3rd saying he didn't think it was right until we owned a house of our own (we rent). When we decided that we would have no kids, he allowed the 3rd.
You two have to talk it out, and if he says NO, then you can't do much.
Don't mind Colin - keeps threatening to kill me over his lack of kittens, of which he NEEDS more - like it's MY fault - and - after the day I am having...I'd suggest replacing recalcitrant hubby with 3rd lab!
