Last year when my dog, Hank, died, I was devastated. We had him for almost six years, and he was very much a part of our family. Every step that I took, he was there with me. I have missed him enormously since he died.
I thought I wanted another dog, and have suggested it to Briar, Brad and Tim several times with resounding NOs from all of them.
My mom’s shih tzu recently had puppies, and I have thought about bringing one of them home. I’ve grown pretty attached to one of them. I’ve just never been really crazy about small dogs. While I like to pet him and play with him at Mom’s house, the thought of constantly tripping over him and listening to shrill barks isn’t appealing – I like the deep woooof of a “real” dog.
Anyway…. Tim called me yesterday to tell me that the daughter of one of his friends has a mastiff (which is the same breed as Hank) she wants to give away. He is two years old, house-trained and is not only the same breed as Hank, but has the same coloring and markings.
My first reaction was YES!!!! However, after thinking about it a little more, and actually shedding some tears at the thought of losing another beloved pet, I’m leaning more toward no. Briar and Brad still say no. I’ve got till Saturday to make up my mind. So… is the time right or not? Any thoughts????
