I've hit rock bottom... or at least as low as i'm willing to let myself go and I need to start making some changes in my life. For the most part i can make the decisions that i need to make, but there is one that I've got too much emotion tied into to make it on my own, without at least a little outside help. I've got 2 dogs. One is deaf and the other is her best friend. They get along like you wouldnt believe. About a year ago, i was able to handle having 2 dogs (financially and emotionally) LAtely though (as in the last 6 months) I've really been having some trouble tending to them. I find myself so stressed out that i am constantly yelling at them for donig things that dogs do, I dont have the time to train them any more than they already are, and I never pay any attention to them. I'm working most of the day and they spend about 9 hours in a kennel 6 days a week and I'm starting to have a problem with that. I dont want to give them away. That's what my heart says. But logic and sympathy say that they could find a better home now. There is no question that i can change my lifestyle and make it work with them... but it would take some serious sacrifices on my behalf to make it work. I would have to cut hours (meaning risk failure, I'm self employed), I would have to dedicate a ton of time to them (which they deserve, but i'm unable to provide) and i would have to figure out a better way for them to live. Now, lets throw another problem into the mix. I would like to relocate to a different state in the near future. The place i want to go (Seattle area) is a bit more expensive than my current place meaning that i would have to be able to find a place with a back yard and the accomidations for my big ass 120 lb dogs in my price range, to make it work. That's not likely. So, essentially they are making it hard for me to relocate. I feel like a piece of shit for even thinking of turning my back on my dogs, they're always there for me, they would never turn on me, and they would save my ass if i needed them to.... Input please?
