We now have a 3 year old and a 2.5 year old. They might bury me.
My point is.... don't forget there are wonderful dogs out there now needing a home. They help ease the pain.
We will get another dog eventually, but I think we need to wait a while first.
We did get a kitten in June at the animal shelter, and she is helping ease the pain for us. Unfortunately, she also loved our old dog and seems to miss her.
