I am getting a Shetland Sheepdog next tuesday! Iam extremely happy about this and I am on cloud nine waiting on him toget here. He will be an indoor only dog (paper trained so not evenoutdoors to potty much) but he will be walked everyday outside.

anyway, Ryo is out all of the time. Of course I can change this an oldhave her out when I can watch the dog with her. But it seems terriblyunfair.

any suggestions on having rabbits and dogs together? how to introducethem, how to tell if bunny is getting too stressed being out with thedogs? etc etc

I love shelties!congratulations! Is the sheltie a puppy or anadult? I have two golden retirevers who don't seem to know wehave a bunny (I like to say they're in denial) so I can't really offermuch advice as it's run smoothly for me. Just keep in mindthat shelties were bred to herd, so it's likely that's what the dogwill want to do to the rabbit.
