I agree with Lisa. That's def pushing it. My mom moved to Rockledge to be closer to me because on occasion one of us works, or has to leave town for a day or two and having her closer makes it easier to make sure none of our dogs are left too long.
My dogs are crated for 9 hours max for 5 days a week. I ALWAYS have at least one dog day over the weekend, and they are walked at least once every morning and sometimes in the evening too.
There are tons of companies out there that will pop in and let them out for you for a few bucks per visit. If you can swing an extra few, sometimes they will waslk them too.
I don't trust anyone else to walk Ecko, so I keep it to just potty breaks when I use them.
There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.
