Having anxiety with 2 newly adopted dogs. Help!
Hi all, I am new to this and using a forum, but I am in search of help, suggestions, advice, and if anybody else has felt the way I do. My fiance and I adopted two wonderful dogs yesterday, one a Maltese and the other a Mini Pinscher, and they are the most adorable little dogs. I love dogs, grew up with dgos, and have always imagined myself owning a dog. This is the first time I have a dog for myself in my own home, it's been great, but I continue to have more anxiety than I thought I would, I already suffer from anxiety, and I thought having dogs of my own would help with this and be an added benefit to my life, but I am in day 2 and very uptight. I worry about them (in a good way) since I got them. I know I am still getting to know them, so this may be a stressful process, but I shouldn't be crying for no reason, almost as if I am worrying I will fail these pups and what if it doesn't work? As I sit and type this, I watch as they sleep so soundly and I can't imagine not having them. Did anyone else feel this way or have any advice for me? My fiance is The calm one and tells me I will get over these feelings, but any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!
