Am I just selfish?
Hi all

I really want to know that I' m doing the right thing before I do it, as my parents are constantly on my case about it. I love dogs and our family dog died a year ago and my fiance and I are getting married soon. We both work but love dogs and wanna get a puppy after we return from honeymoon.

The dog we' re getting isn' t that active, but we will take it for regular walk etc. I am just worried that we won' t be home till after 17h00 every day and though of taking the puppy to a daycare during the week. I really love dogs, can' t wait to get one, but just scared that it will not get all the attention it needs. Although I am sure it will.....we will never just leave the dog outside 24/7....

Can we get one or will the dog be depressed?

I agree with Maria, both about asking the Cybervet forum ( gosh, it seems some other experts are falling like flies ! Sexologist, ADHD, and now Cybervet ! ) And about considering 2 puppies so they can be company for each other, and spend happy days chewing your shoe collection together
