Dear everyone...

Recommended Posts

My dog Maddie is 10 yrs old. Her life expectancy is 9. I am very sad that she is getting older :coffee

I can not imagine replacing her after she is gone. However, I love animals. I would really like to get another dog now. And yes I have found one. She is a 2 yr old Border Collie mix.

Mr P hates the idea.

I would still love Maddie just the same. And I think she would enjoy the company in her old age.

Am I being ridiculous. Selfish. Unreasonable. ????

Please give me your insight....

2 takes on it TTC.

1. You wait for the inevitable day, go through a grievance period..then get another companion.

2. You start the procedure now if you think you've found "the right companion "

Either way you go, there is no wrong or right way..go with your gut feeling :coffee

As far as Mr. P's opinion goes..I prefer not to interfere or take sides in that respect...only to say that when Mr'P met you , did he know you were a dog lover and except you as being one :beer

But that issue is for the 2 of you ..best of luck in whatever your path in this decision is :)

I say go for it and get the pup.

Just make sure the new one gives the "old girl" her space and that the new one understands  maddie is the queen o da house.



I think that would be the only real question is will they get along?

you dont want the new one trying to take over.

I have the same problem TTC. Can't figure out if it's a good idea for the old girl. BUT, I've witnessed my buddies old dog come to life, when his new wife had a dog, and the dogs were brought together. Ya never know. :dunno I will say this, I have a Border Collie mix, and without a doubt, the smartest, sweetest dog I ve ever had.
