I recently lost my beloved dog so I'll be posting in the memorial thread soon. I am having a difficult time with this giant void in my life. I don't want to get a new dog right away because we need time to grieve. Actually my husband is so heartbroken he said it's going to be a long time before we get one. A part of me wants a dog right now because I want to fill that emptiness. But that would be wrong and not fair for the new dog. I thought if I joined this forum it might help fill some of that void. It would give me something to do. Offer advice and suggestions. Am I doing the right thing or will this just rub salt in the wounds. What do you all think.
