I'm sure it's been done a thousand times...
Me and my boyfriends have split up a last week and I am moving back to live with my mum. We have decided between us that I will take Smudger with me, my ex works long hours (14 hr shifts) and even though it means Smudger moving homes he won't be locked in the kitchen all day
So Smudger is moving back to my mums with me.... here's the problem, my mum has an 8 year old Yorkie, what kind of things should I think about?? I'm going to get him neutered asap before moving in..... is it expensive? and how will it affect him...
Can anyone give me any tips, my mums yorkie has been the only one in the house for 8 years so it's going to be interesting

I'm sorry to hear about your breakup but you do whatever is best for you to be happy, I understand. This whole past week I've been living in my parents' extra room b/c of "issues" with my husband (grrr, men!!!!) Sully has been with me the whole time and has really done well. And he's been such a comfort to me as Smudger will definitely be to you!
I don't know much about having 2 dogs in the house (but I'd love to get another, haha) but I'd just say keep them apart during unsupervised time until they really get to know each other. Good luck with your transition! PM me if you need to talk!

I am sorry about the break up. I had an 8 year old crabby Pom when I got Cali last year. I just supervised at first and they learn who is boss and work it out. So far no problems and it's been 10 months. They now lay around together sometimes. The only time we have issues is when Cali jumps all over Maya and Maya isn't in the mood. She will give her a little warning growl and if that doesn't stop her, she will get up and chase her away. It should work out fine.

my grouchy princess(chi/mix-Tinker) didnt like at all when Tootie came along but very quickly they have learned, or Tootie has learned, who the boss is and they do fine.... he learned quick to be submissive to her, leave her alone and all is well, LOL.... cant mess with the Princess.
