Well, so far no one really has been after taking Rudy from us. I have had some people inquire so maybe. Bill and I are becoming more and more attached to Rudy. He is less rowdy and settles down better than before. He spends most of his day outdoors and I go out and sit with him or play fetch with him several times a day and then we have been going on evening walks. Short ones but he is learning. He is even starting to come in part of the afternoon and sleep on the floor at my feet. So maybe we will keep him. My main concerns are during the winters here in Ohio. He would be indoors with me quite a bit and I might be returning to full time employment which means the crate for 8-10 hours a day plus at night. If I am home, (even tho' I like to stay inside and hug the wood burning stove and stay there!) I could still go on several short walks in the snow a day and we could still play fetch several times a day. If I sub teach next year, sometimes I don't know from day to day until I am subbing, and he would still be left alone alot. So hopefully that will work out.
Do any of you get snow and really cold weather down there in the Soutwest and Texas? Seems like with a Lacy's light coat, they would do good in that climate even during winter. Our other dog was getting older and he didn't seem to mind that we stayed indoors so much and he slept alot at the end. He also had a heavier winter coat then Ruby has so he could stay out longer. He also was very good in the house and I didn't have to crate him. Never was anything out of place. So I could be gone all day and I just would hurry when I got home from school and get him outside to potty!
Well, more later. I just wanted to update everyone on how things were going. Thanks! Laura P.S. The walks are going good with our new harness and we are getting far! He pulls still alittle but not as bad and I just go the other direction! He seems to be getting it real quick! :D

I think that you made a good decision!!

Dont worry about the cold. There are lacys all over everywhere. There are lacys in Montana, Maryland, Canada, northern AZ, NY, etc. He will put on a coat that will protect him. Even my dogs who rarely see any snow absolutely love it and will play in it like crazy. I think that they expend so much energy that they dont get cold until the wind down.
