Understand. I feel the same way about my 16 year old Teddy Bear dog who passed to Rainbow Bridge two months ago. I love him and if I get another dog it will be a Teddy Bear. You loved your Westie so get a Westie. You only get another dog because you loved your dog so much. That new dog doesn’t replace your dog, it demonstrates how much you loved your dog or would not get another dog.So it is a month and a half since my beautiful Westie Max left to go to the bridge aged just 3 years. Whilst there isn't a single day that goes by where he is not in my thoughts I have started to think about the possibility of sharing our home with another dog in the not too distant future. My question is how will I know when the time is right? my family have always loved Westies but would it be strange having a dog of the same breed around the house again? I don't want to disrespect Max.
