we already have 5 dogs in our house and the truth is they are really hard to manage at times since these days we don't have a 'helping hand' in our house. so aside from the daily household chores, attending to all our dogs' needs can really be tricky at times. but we never failed to feed, bathe and groom them. we have 3 male dogs and 2 female dogs. and it is inevitable that one of the female dogs will get pregnant. if ever they bore more puppies, our family would select a friend whom we know can attend to the dog's needs well and we would give them the puppy/ies at the right age. a few months back, we had a new addition - this one cute little puppy, her name is trix. she's so cute and sweet. she would always approach us when we arrive home and wiggle her tail happily. it's really good to feel that someone is so happy to see you after each day. she would always follow me everywhere i go and would always want to play with me. but our family decided to give her to a friend since we know that she will be taken care much better in their place since we already have 5 dogs aside from her. it's been almost a week since we gave her to a friend and we still feel lonely and miss her. trix brightens our days with her playful presence. we miss her terribly. even if it is for his/her own good - it's really hard to let go of someone so dear...
