Do you think you will get another dog when these pass away or are you done?

I think I will get another dog when these pass. Or a year before they pass so I can get the older dogs to teach the puppy. Then I am so done. I have three right now and in 14 years from now probably get another dog and then just leave it at one dog until I die. Or the dog dies what ever comes first.

  • We have always had dogs and always will. We currently have 4...1 Lab/Mix, 2 Yorkies and a Beagle/Bassett mix. We had a Black Lab but we had to have him put to sleep in January due to damage to his lungs after he was trapped in our house for almost 4 during a fire, the smoke damaged his lungs badly (it was a miracle that he even survived the fire at all) and we have won't be getting another dog any time soon...we can't replace Buckeye. When all 4 of our current dogs are gone we will eventually add 2 small dogs to our family because we love having dogs and can't imagine not having dogs around. I don't know how long we'll wait though.

  • I have 2 dogs. They are 10 & 6. We will get a new dog when my older dog dies. We have already made the decision. We wont be replacing her though until she has passed away.

  • I think if something happened to my dogs I would get a cat. Cats are just less work.

  • I have one dog and i love him just like a kid. He is DS best friend. DS won't even go outside until he gets his buddy. He is just turnned 12 and we have discussed if he passes (cuse I am hoping he will live forever) We will get another of the same breed. We have had to dogs before and both were large breeds but have decided we are a 1 dog family.

  • I think we probably will. We are just animal people. I have 2 cats, 2 indoor dogs, DH has 4 hunting dogs, and we have a snake. I couldn't imagine life without at least a few furbabies around!
