Is it better to have one pet or several?


We live with eight dogs, 3 pitt bull mixes, their mother who is border collie, a full blood dashound and her two pups and one full blood chihauhau. Often we are told we have too many pets, but my disabled husband thrives with them and the more the merrier. There are also two cats lurking about as well. Are we overtaxed with animals or can I safely claim they are here for his theraphy?

    We do well with time, physicality and emotionally, but financially has been a strain on keeping dog food in the house! LOL
