Thanks, guys. I don't think re-homing her is a good idea. She is very happy here and we do love her. She is well taken care of. I just did not expect this much work, but since I adopted her, it's only right that I fulfill my duties and raise her the best I can in the best home possible. She gets her exercise, plenty of toy throwing and she is in a puppy class. I guess I am just wondering if my schedule is out of the ordinary, other than the night time crating. If I was working, too, we would have to do doggy day care for sure. My goal is to one day get her to a point where she can freely roam the house. I know that's at least past the age of one, perhaps three.
I try to keep her on a schedule during the day (exercise, nap, exercise, nap) so that I have some free time to relax, too. I depend on her naps like a new mom depends on a baby's naps. That, I think is nuts, but it is what it is.
