I want a dog ready to compete in agility 2-3 years from now, when Lucy can't do it anymore. I don't want to have 2 dogs (1 young, untrained) + baby over the next 2-3 years though. To be honest, I don't really ever want 2 dogs at the same time. I wish there was a rescue that would put foundations on a dog for me. I also fear that I will never be able to get a small dog from any decent rescue with a young child in the house. *sigh*

Anyone want to adopt and care for a dog through the puppy years so I can take it back when it's 3ish?
I believe Jess is up to the challenge.

But, I feel for you. Having a foster dogs right now is driving me nuts. It's double the trouble. (Though I think it would be much easier with a small dog.)

Not to mention undergoing major life changes.

...Do you know what Malinois zoomies look like inside a house?

What I have seen today can never be unseen.

And with that, I'm getting off the internet to prevent further destruction.

Yeah, I used to get a foster every time I wanted a second dog...and then I'd realize 1 dog was way more my style and be thrilled when foster dog went home.

Jess--I am vetoing who you gave me for Secret Santa and choosing you instead. Your box may have holes in it when it arrives.

I did that with Elsie. Good luck.

She only pulled me off the bike five or six times.

Ugh god I feel you. I keep looking at logistics of three dogs and it's like... Ahhh. So much harder than loading up my two easy dogs. I'm spoiled. My two can go everywhere and do everything with me and a third dog will put a wrench in that a bit.

Oh well, I want it bad enough so it'll happen. It will be an adjustment. I still need to finish saving my downpayment though. never ending. Hopefully the timing is right./

LOL!!! Yeah, I might die. I took her out already for a serious game of fetch in a giant open field, did that till her tongue was hanging, then worked a bunch of obedience and jumping exercises. I'm hoping somehow that helps keep me on the bike.

...Right?

I think realistically I will just have to wait until Lucy is gone Makes me sad to think about losing her and being dog-less, but the logistics of adding an untrained dog (of any age, size, temperament) over the next couple years make my head spin.

You could always look for adult rehomes. Either from a breeder with an adult dog they need to place, or I've even seen ads on craigslist for people rehoming young adult dogs that their kids have done 4H obedience/agility with and since "out grown".

(I am not an enabler. I'm not.)
