It isn't working...it has been a long week of frustration. I'm not giving up but may have to let go of the idea of the specific girl I was wanting. Wrigley starts obedience in a week and so I'm hoping after that - DH will be more open. Also, the yogurt in the food each meal has REALLY helped on the gas. So both of those things are in my favor. Money is a bit tight (like it is for everyone) and so that is one of hubby's issues. SO I'll just have to start tucking money to be ready for down the road.
