Miss my dog

Is it wrong to get another dog soon after a loss? I miss the companionship of my old dog? I don'[t want to replace the personality of the one that passed, just miss having a dog around to take care of and love.

I don't think there is anything to be gained by observing some mandatory period of mourning after the loss if a well-loved dog.

There IS an advantage to doing your research and avoiding impulsive decisions.

Personally, I've avoided getting a dog that is too similar to the one I've lost. I would be too tempted to make comparisons that are unfair to both dogs. But that's just me.
