Well, being that we just lost our dog, I'm still not sure this was the right decision to do so this early. For most of you know, I had to do the hardest thing I have had to do in my life last night, I put my dog to sleep whom was suffering from a bad terminal illness. Both Kris and I had a really bad night, she didn't sleep at all, she laid in bed crying all night. We had decided a while back, that we did want to give another dog a chance at a good home. After talking to my Mom this morning, she suggested I go ahead and get a pup. I got a paper, and found a new litter of Golden Retrievers for sale. I feel like it is the right thing to do, and am glad to give a nice dog a great home. He is just 6 weeks old, and man he is a handfull already. I know spence could NEVER be replaced, and that isn't my intentions in the least bit. I do believe investing your love into a new friend can help the healing process. He's untying my shoe as I type........this ought to be fun. I really hope that Kris is going to be emotionally ready for this, I know it is a big step in a fast way, but I really believe it can help us both learn to live with the way things have gone. Hopefully my surprise for her when she gets home pleases her. *Sigh* he's now trying to nurse off my rottweiler, a MALE one. Gotta go make a run for some puppy chow, and some fresh chew toys.
