We currently have 7 dogs, but with two of them being pomeranians I don't think they really count. Both dh and I each work 2 and there are days that I would love to just hang and be a couch potato but it cant happen. If I had my way I would have more but I do work full time so we are currently maxed. As they age and retire from working we will probably add younger working bunch. DH makes it all happen though since he is gone 24 and home 48 he can provide the exercise and stimulation when I am stuck at work. Eventually (in about 10 years) I will be able to work part time or not at all and then we plan on doing german shepherd rescue in our area so we will see what happens then. I cannot imagine life with only one or even 2 the house would just seem empty.
