Hey I'm getting a Maltese ****zu pup soon and am just a bit worried because I work from 9 til 5 30 and it'll b home by itself. I've got it a kong thing and heaps of other toys but will it be ok. I've read heaps of places that say u shouldn't get a dog if ur not going to be home but seriously who is home all day and doesnt work? My other dog died a couple of months ago that lived with my parents so I really want a new companion. I will try and come home thru the day but does anyone else have any tips to keeping her happy thru the day? I'll b keeping her outside in her kennel thru the day until she is toilet trained but she'll be inside all other times and sleep inside too. Plz don't tell me not to get a dog because I am going to but just need advice.
