I'm thinking of getting a dog and as I have 2 daughters I assume that come the bad weather I will be sole carer.
I don't want to make a rash decision and regret it as I think it is very unfair on the animal if you can't devote the right time and effort to looking after one.
My question is, who has one and how much time and effort do they really take and what have you had to give up / compromise as a result? (what I really mean is riding time)
Should mention I'm thinking about a German Shorthaired Pointer.
