I live in a household where the dogs outnumber the people – in my case, it is three to one! And since they are corgis, it often feels more like six to one! Dogs are pack animals; they do their best to (graciously) accept us as part of their pack, but there is also a lot to be said for multi-dog households. We, the people, can’t always be home, and single dogs spend a lot of solitary time. It’s really nice to have a buddy to snuggle on the couch with, and who speaks your language fluently, too. Having said that, owning more than one dog is not for everyone. Each additional dog needs more time, attention, exercise, food, vet care, training, grooming…not to mention money! I don’t ever recommend adding to your canine kids without a lot of careful consideration. But I have to say, I love watching the dynamics between two or more dogs who live together (or spend lots of time together). My own three are a constant wonder. Watching them interact adds daily to my understanding of the miracle that is Dog. Below are some pictures of my boarder “siblings”.
