ANSWER #1 of 12

The only way it is stressful is if you take on more than you can handle personally. I have 8 Cocker Spaniels and it is a lot of work, some people would only be able to handle 1 or 2 and others could handle 10. It is all about knowing limits. The dogs have good days and bad days just like people do so every day is different for us. We have health insurance on all our dogs so we are prepared for whatever comes along. That keeps the stress at a minimum, not having a big financial issue.

my dog seems to pee a lot when she is outside why is this?
ANSWER #8 of 12

well I should mum has well over over 100 pets!!
she takes in a lot of injured animals from the vets and people who find them, as well as them we also have our own pets...weve got rats, chickens, geese, ducks, turtles, turkeys, a snake, lots of different birds, lizards, possums, guinea pigs...and even a pig!! as well as others. sometimes it can be but it depends on how much you love animals and if you have the time to take care of them all. it probably does stress my mum out every now and then...because she needs to wake up early to feed them all. but if your prepared to do all that then its more of a hobby. it becomes something that you do because you love it and it makes you happy. if your that kind of person then there shouldnt be any worries!
