- Putting one in a crate on the bed and the other just left on the floor of the bedroom... Why haven't I thought of that? LOL Yes, that could work. Our bedroom is tiny, and this would be the only option other than tethering them on opposite sides of the room somehow. I'll look into that. I need to find a crate big enough for one of them...
- I know, it's complicated. I'll be glad to explain further. I didn't want to bore people with all the details, but perhaps it would help here.
The breeder is reputable and told us the difficulties we would have. Husband didn't care. Wanted to buy two of them. The breeder was honest, but didn't talk us out of it. Wish he had
But I don't blame him.
We can't crate because, in our living situation, there is no room. We've also been asked not to put crates in the main living area of the house in which we are staying. Our bedroom (our only personal space) is too small to put any crates. No room to put one, let alone two.
Our living situation changed AFTER my husband and I purchased our two pups. We were originally in our own home by ourselves and were able to crate, separate, etc. Life changed, and we're in this living situation. Most people would have re-homed them at this point given the life change, but my husband wouldn't hear of it. He loves them too much. He said it would be like giving away one of your children if your life suddenly got hard. No one would do that in that instance, so it's the same here. Could someone please talk sense to him?
I would NOT rather have a dog injured or killed then re-home, my husband would. I'm trying to keep that from happening as best I can given our situation because I cannot talk my husband into re-homing. I don't understand him either. Maybe you could talk to him..?
I don't think you're mean or unkind, you're genuinely wanting to know what crazy person would be in this situation
If this isn't going away, I have to find a way, for the year that we are in this situation, to prevent something terrible from happening as much as possible. There MUST be a way. Otherwise, maybe this is a huge wake-up call to my husband.
I hope it helped you understand a little better
