    Hopefully it will work out with the cat. You are right about the instinct never going away, and smart about doing the crate-training, and it might be good to have a room with a gate where your cat can escape if he needs to.

    Being such a beautiful and exotic-looking dog, you are going to have a LOT of people coming up to you to see him or her - for its whole life, so yup, socialization is going to be really important! It sounds like you are doing a lot of research and will have a great start!

    that's a good idea. I'll have to see about how we can leave the office open for the cat but keep it off limits to the dog. A gate won't work since they could easily just jump it. Something to think over for sure.

    It's why i'm glad it's such a social breed <3 Granted of course every dog is different, but for the most part they're easy to socialize. Still am going to make sure people know how to approach my dog and pet them, but hopefully with good training he/she will be able to understand "Ok humans are weird, smooshy head pets and hugs aren't suppose to be taken as rude" and it'll be good

    Long shot and just a thought, but maybe you could buy a door to use just while you are living there, and put a cat door in that? Save the door that's in there now to put back in when you leave? (What we don't do for our pets, eh?)

    Sadly, as I was just informed... the owner of the house has a "1 pet per home" rule that was not disclosed to us during are initial inquiry. The rental agent said it was "pets on approval".

    I'm extremely upset right now. I've been waiting over 5 years for the chance to get one of these dogs, and just when I thought I'd finally have a change... BOOM! Right in my face.

    Now I'm hoping that the apartment complex that we first looked at gets back to us in July and says we'll have a place for you. It's a 2 bed 1 bath, with like 900sq ft, so still a decent space, and they're not as strict with the pet policy and it's a gated community so there is plenty of space to let a dog out and run on a long leash. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time and I want my damn dog! @_@

    AAAACK!!! *sigh* But, everything happens for a reason. Maybe this other place would work out much better in the long run. Will keep fingers crossed!

    We'll see. I was really hoping for that dog though. Hopefully we can get a 6m lease and I can see if the breeder can hold the dog for me till then but I doubt it.
