    Itís really weird eating pizza without a dog around, am lost what to do with the crust ďpizza bonesĒ?!
    @MB53 I get it. I donít know what to do without a dog, have had them for years...And, yes I do like the looks of this one, he looks sweet. I have to be fair though, CWO has been a traveler (30 years CG) and not use to being tied to a house by pets. Iíd like to go a few places myself, just not a whole lot.

    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    When our dog(s) start getting on in years, and the inevitable is just a year or 2 off, we get another dog.
    The younger dog learns from the older dog about how our pack works. It gives the older dog a way to pass along what they've learned.
    When the time comes, the younger dog steps into the role.
    It also helps with our transition.

    This is what I have done for years, and yes the younger dog will learn from the older one.

    CWO has had his hands full with having to care for me lately with that IV I had and Iím still not 100% so it would put more on his plate too - have to be fair to the dog and CWO and I couldnít care for him by myself right now, donít have the strength. I am not able to walk a dog but could toss a frisbee or ball.

    We put ours in a kennel when she couldn't go with us. Good kennel, but Daisy sure did learn to appreciate living in her own home!

    Sister, my wife and I discovered a long time ago the best way to get over losing an old friend is to get a new friend - you're on the right track.
    Be careful of people who brag about who they are - a lion will never have to tell you who he's a lion.

    Most times the companion choses us.
    Many years ago we were living with her parents for a bit. One stormy morning I went outside and found a soaked, shivering puppy on the front porch. No idea whos dog it was. Took the dog somewhere else before my kids woke up and saw it.
    Several hours later it was back. It stayed for the next 14 years. A Chow/Husky mix that was my best friend. The dogs since have been great companions, but Harry was that special one.
    Now it's a tossup to see if I'll outlive our current dog. (ok, my daughters dog that follows me everywhere when I'm home)

    After having dogs, cats, fish etc. it is sometimes nice to be able to jump in a car, plane train or ship & go!
    We are animal people but .. at our age, nice to travel.

    I typically get a new pup not very long after a dog dies. The pup is not a replacement, rather a new beginning.
    We boarded our dogs once, never again; our vacations are planned to be dog friendly, love it.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    We have three dogs and two cats. We still travel.

    We loved our Dobie. That boy looks sweet.
