I'd kind of worry about each dog getting enough attention in a way. When I had four, then 5 for a spell, I always felt like one was getting the short end of the stick a little bit. When Lyric was a pup, I kind of felt like both Chi's were getting ripped off when I spent so much time training him. I really didn't do much with the Chi's besides our daily off leash hikes or walks. But you know your own situation and your own self best and how it would work better than anyone else. I'm just looking at it from my own perspective, I guess. Well....I'm sure you've given all that lots of thought.

Enjoy them. They cuddle, they chill, they walk, they hike, they are pleasant. You can still do sports with mellow dogs, just not the same level.

DARN IT.

I'm so bad at math and for some reason I was picturing six little ones.
I guess now you put two on either side of Rory.

Paps are very dog orientated. They adore their people but are very content to hang out in a pack. They prefer groups. So coming into your home will be great for her. You will find her more border collie like in energy type then the chis are as well.

Aside from that, if you take her you have to take Riley. She projection puke painted my stair case today and I'm looking to rehome. LOL

Chill dogs are awesome, as are high energy dogs

I live with 2 very high energy dogs- Rory and Emma. Rylie and Chloe are super chill. Tucker's somewhere in between.

They all get along. We don't have to crate/rotate or separate them. They all eat together, they all sleep together, and the chihuahuas kind of ARE like one. Haha.

I've always known I was going to have a lot of pets, and I honestly wouldn't want any less than 4-5 dogs. It's like when someone has more than 3 kids and people ask "how do you have time for them all?" We do a lot of things in groups, muliple dogs go on hikes with us, and my arms get a little more tired from throwing toys for a few dogs at a time.

We are the same. Anything less than four dogs would just seem empty.

I do always find it amusing that, at least in my experience, no one ever asks someone with multiple children 'How do you handle it, it's unfair to your older children?!" or "you're having another?!" when someone is pregnant. And many times,people admonish "Don't get dogs close in age" Yet, getting another dog is always 'more?! How will you keep up on attention?!" lol. Kids are WAY more attention needing than dogs. My kid wasn't even out of swaddle age when people asked "when are you having more??" Ah...just the one, thank you.

Mind you, I have the Border Collie of children....without the benefit of a "stay" command.

Things are better when they're even... therefore you need a 6th dog.

lol, I do ask that, actually. Not to anyone's face, but I often think it when the harried mother of 4+ is pregnant again. I see it a lot at my school. The older kids miss out on attention from their parents and act out at school to get that desired attention. Often it's because they have 2-3 little (not yet school aged) siblings at home, and mom and dad have no time for the oldest kiddo.
