Much rather just have one.
    This makes me feel so much better about Titan being an "only child" hahaha. I sometimes want another dog but reading this I realize that I really, really don't.

    That's cool. One problem I have (2 dogs, 2 cats) anytime one comes over for loving at one or more others feel like they have to be in on it too.

    Can you please just list out all of your pets' names (possible pets too)?? These are fantastic.

    It's good they all get along together. If you had our cat with you even two would be one too many, because she usually doesn't want to share the attention of humans with other animals at home. One of the nieces had a fake fur ball (kind of looked like a cat curled up sleeping on her lap) and when she saw it she ran across the room and attacked it viciously. Every time we've tried to dog sit and the dog tries to come over to us to get attention, she's right there swatting and hissing at them. She's a bully. She even sat in front of one dogs bowl, just to torment him, until we called her away from it. The last dog we dog sat is an older dog, very calm, doesn't actively try to get attention/affection from us, and she was okay with him this week. She seems to get along okay with other animals only if they realize whose in charge

    with this. As long as your place isn't like one of those you occasionally see on the news (yuck) where the animals are malnourished and the place smells bad, why not I suppose.

    You can never have to many!
    We have 5 cats - 4 of which we adopted over 9 years ago from an animals shelter in Oregon as kittens and 2 dogs a 10 year old and 4 year old.
    My husband and I both come from families and had a bunch of pets growing up so I say the more the merrier! Ours all get along really well never had an issue with fights or stealing food or anything. The dogs love to cuddle spoon with the cats.
    I will also say that it's harder having more than one big dog than a bunch of cats. We always have to take them both on car rides, both get cookies, can't walk one without the other hahahaha
