[quote=COFF]This is maybe the only time I would ever say this, but get a cat instead. My grandmother-in-law had a yorkie that died a few years ago. Just before Christmas last year she went to the pound and came home with a 3-4 year old min schnauzer. That dog is going to be the death of her. Turns out the dog has some type of skin condition and she takes him to the vet at least once a month. She can't walk him, so she puts him on a long tether in front of her apartment. He has nipped at two or three of her neighbors (this is a retirement community, so old folks walking around everywhere). Then she can't keep any kind of schedule so the dog ends up locked inside all day long and makes messes everywhere.

I know you are thinking this is just an all around bad/unlucky situation for all involved and you are right. But overall, a cat is much lower maintenance than a dog. If that can satisfy you for companionship, then it may be a much better fit. Also, it will help out catching spiders or anything else in your trailer. [/quot

There are four cats and three dogs on the place now.
I had cats before Buckwheat.
All were good pets.
Two things I don't like about cats.
Claws and litter boxes.
The first hurts and the second stinks.
I live in very small quarters. No place for a litter box.

Have you considered rescuing a senior dachshund?

My wife and I have fostered about a dozen wiener dogs over the years. The rescue we hooked up with has dogs with all kinds of backgrounds/personalities. Special needs, senior, puppies, etc.

I’m not trying to sell you on the idea...this is informational only:
Although natural selection may change this over time, at present goldfish don’t have claws - and like most pets, they don’t require a litter box.

I have heard that Boston Terriers are great due to their need for companionship.

Don't you read? I cannot get out of the trailer to do much of anything. Physically unable. I can't walk 50 feet without having stop and sit down. I'm getting damned tired of explaining that to people who really don't or can't pay attention. I promised not to say anything about my health but some times I half to

Get a long haired miniature Dachsy. Greatest dogs ever. If it outlives you, I’ll welcome it here.

Again, not selling but...a goldfish won’t need to get out of the trailer and depending upon the size of bowl/tank, their range is generally less than one foot.

There are no goldfish rescue organizations, so no home inspection would be required.

I think that a lot of rescue organizations do home inspections before letting the dog go. Not sure how that would play out.

Naw, I don’t read every one of your post and don’t really give a chit what kind of dog you get. Is that better?
