I’ve had three dogs in my life - an Irish Setter died at 12 years, Cocker died at 13 years, a Teddy Bear died at 16 years. I have always had dogs in my life. I love them. Now after Teddy Bear has passed I just don’t know about getting another dog. I am so lonely without him. I wouldn’t get a dog until next year. I am 67 and alone. I do think about care for a puppy, training I know what that all means. It’s like having a baby if not worse. At least diapers for baby. I am not sure I want to adopt a dog. Perhaps I am too old for getting a pup to love. Thanks to all who respond.
