Any tips on how a fellow dog lover that would LOVE to get a dog but just doesn't have the time for one can get their dog fix?
Due to my hour long commute I'm essentially out of the house for 10+ hours a day so unfortunately I don't really see how I could have time for a dog of my own. I don't really see my job or living situation changing anytime. I volunteer at a shelter every fortnight and have been advertising for months for weekend dog sitting and walking (so far there's been no takers in my area) but sometimes it just doesn't feel like enough!
Is there anything else I could do to get my dog fix? None of my friends have dogs and I miss being around them like crazy. Should I just resign myself to the fact that I'm never going to be able to get a dog of my own and accept what contact I do have with the shelter dogs?
