- Thank you for the encouraging reply
I hope it's not inevitable that the behavior will escalate. I will try to find a way to, when I can't be there with them in our weekday house, to keep them separated. Not sure what that looks like right now, but I'll do my best.
- Perhaps they seem like excuses, but I'm trying everything I can to work with what I have. And I don't have a lot. I'm wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation as mine and has been successful, and has advice on how to cope. It doesn't seem like anybody has. That's why it seems I shoot down a lot of advice because it's not realistic in my situation.
- That is very scary what you're saying. They get along 99% of the time. Is it really a huge risk to leave them alone together every now and then? I know there are stories, but there are horror stories for everything. Regardless, our situation will hopefully change within the year, so when we have our own place, we can certainly find ways of separating them when we're gone.
I know it's selfish what we're putting the pups through. I want to re-home, but this is not my decision to make. My husband will not hear of re-homing. I have tried to bring up the subject, and it's shot down very adamantly. He even brings up the "if we had twins, would you re-home one because it's difficult?" He questions my ability to be a mother to human babies if I can't handle these animal babies. Please believe me that I want to re-home, but I just can't. I guess I'm being selfish for not just putting my foot down and taking one to a shelter or something, but I really want to put the blame on my husband on this one. There is absolutely nothing I can do.
It sucks my roommate is the exception, and I'm not. I'm working my butt off every day for these two pups, and still there are issues. She does nothing with hers, and they're totally fine. It's so unfair. I guess I just wanted someone to tell me that mine will be fine like hers since at least I'm putting in the work. If that's not the reality, so be it.
Haha, thanks for the reassurance I'm screwed
I'm doing everything I can. I'd love to post to this thread in a month or so that everything is fine. I hope I can
