I've been considering it for quite sometime. My mom has always gotten upset at me because she says its inconsiderate of me to not let Teddy have a friend to play with.
As an only child myself, I do realize how lonely it could get sometimes, but I did/do enjoy being an only child. I don't mind not having to share my moms love and attention lol I do envy my friend who have sisters because they have a friend for life.
Teddy is 11 months now. I am always arranging play dates, or at least try to. I see how happy he gets and how much he loves to play. I would take him to dog parks but I some times think its a little dangerous. Some people are not responsible owners and God knows what sickness the other dogs might have.
I have thought about expense and I think I could manage another dog. Tiny toys don't eat a lot and grooming is not so expensive. I pay $35 every two months for Teddy. Vet expenses are not a big problem since the vet I go to has reasonable prices. I am also considering pet insurance and I think if i get another poodle I will definitely get it.
My main concern is I wouldn't want Teddy to feel bad. He will have to share my attention and love. Also, I take him everywhere with me, to the mall, friends houses, and I even sneak him in to places he shouldn't go like the movie theaters. But if i get him a sister I don't think I could take him to as many places since I would have to watch two dogs instead of one.
Also, I crated Teddy when I got him. If I get another one, how would it work? Do I crate her and leave Teddy outside? Or would Teddy help her not get into trouble?
I contacted the breeder where I got Teddy and unfortunately she won't have a litter anytime soon. She told me that she would let me know if one of her friends will have one.
Do any of you know any AKC breeders near Los Angeles. I drove all the way to Yucca Valley(2 hours away) for Teddy. I don't mind driving again.
I want a Female Tiny toy Apricot/red. Just like Teddy
