It does help. And I feel bad because I actually like Bena, it's the rescue that I have such a hard time with. Bena isn't house broken and I'm obviously failing at that. But it's extremely frustrated dealing with the rescue and THAT is the big issue. She's a very loving dog and I hope she finds a place that needs her. We're not going to foster for a while, at least, after her. I think we're a one dog household. SO has figured out he's a cat person.

And Bena did run on the long line! We ran around the lot and then she wandered for a while. She was pretty tired and she curled up in bed between SO and I. I used her butt as a pillow.

If things don't work out with an ES puppy next I might just bite the bullet and get a BC. Just when my BC-want dies down a bit, I meet one and it's reignited. I'm on the list for an ES puppy from a bitch/breeder I like way too much to back out of, but just in case things don't work out I would be so happy with a BC. My mom said the other day I should get one, lol.

I want another GSD too, ugh! If only I didn't just want 2 dogs.

Easy fix. Send Quinn to me and then get a BC and a GSD.

I definitely was convinced that I only wanted two dogs for a long time, and then three just had to happen and I love it Though I think my group works really well for me because all three as SO different from each other, they fill very different niches. I don't even want to admit it to myself but I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with 4 at some point.....

I'm hopeless.

Black collar puppy is calling your name, though!! LOL But mostly I want you to get another English Shepherd because I have mad ES want.

Also, Trent and I have already called dibs on Quinn So she can totally come live with us.

My trainer has let me run her BC some and he's a lot of fun. She really seem to be trying to pull me that direction lol.

If my plan doesn't work out I will likely get a BC. But part of me enjoys being the only person in the club with my breed. Everyone has a BC. I know that's a lame reason but...

On the other hand BCs are fun as heck.

I personally like the "novelty" of owning a rarer breed. Everybody and their brother has a BC or Aussie in herderdog land... I like having ACD's partially for that reason. Obviously the breed itself fits me like a glove and there are things about BC's and Aussies that turned me off.

Just out of curiosity, what breeds are you looking at?

Haha all of them. Pretty much every collie family type breed.
