    Oh, no, there's this dog that needs adopting....

    ... that looks like my former dog, and she also has what looks like a sibling that is equally cute.

    Oh, man, that urge is overcoming me after 3 years of a petless life.

    Save me!

    Yeah--I'd hate to see them split up. They can entertain themselves.
    Follow your instincts.

    No help from me either. I will give it a try though.

    Based on costs for my 30 lb beagle:
    Vet annual plus heartworm,tick, flea med = $500
    Several leads, rain and winter coats = $200
    Crates for bedroom and LR =$200
    Annual food =$700
    Misc annually including licence, nail trim, anal gland drain =$200
    I made the dog beds out of an old bed pillow and sewed a few large pillow slips of flannel so they get washed when he gets bathed every 6 weeks as he starts to stink.
    Kennel fees are $25/daycare or $50 overnight care.

    Is there a friend or neighbour who can adopt one so that they may visit frequently??

    That is my best effort to help you decide.

    ooh, the voice of reason.
    How about a neighbor or one of your kids--you get one, they get the other?

    Wow, something we agree on! I love dogs but would only want to adopt one that is from a breed(s) that is(are) typically not very vocal.
