Just after your thoughts...
I am hoping to get a puppy for my next dog (who knows though I might end up getting another older dog from a shelter).
However I won't be able to get another dog for at least 3 years, by which time Taya will be 9 (eek!).
I'm wondering if introducing a puppy when the first dog is getting on in age would upset the older dog too much. Would it be kinder to wait until Tay has passed on? (I hate even saying that - it sounds like I'm wishing her dead!)
