Oh my gosh how tragic!! I am so sorry to hear this!!
I THINK I want another puppy, but the reality is TOTALLY different. Besides Tillie isn't CRAZY about other dogs, so I think it would be VERY stressful for all of us. I am already stretched thin with my 2 kids, working, taking care of the house, cooking, shopping, Tillie (and all her needs, cooking her food, making her supplement mix, grooming, classes, on-going training, etc) ... ya I don't think there is enough of ME for another puppy. not for a very, very long time... sigh.
oh and I DO have a husband LOL), but, well, not only is he Russian (very traditional ideas of who does what in the house) BUT he works a LOT (is working right now though from home- he's a computer tech) so he really doesn't help AT all with day to day care of everything and everyone.
