Hopefully by the beginning of next year, but I'm not holding out on it; a couple of things have to fall into place before then.

This for me, too. Everything has to work perfectly for it to become a reality, however. I need to have time, I need to feel like Chloe would adapt well, I need to have the finances, I need to have the right apartment, I need to make sure having three dogs (Chloe, Cynder, and new pup) isn't going to cause unneeded stress, and we need to have not inherited my boyfriend's uncle's Dachshund and Yorkie.

But, if everything does work out, I would like to have a new pup/dog by the end of the year. I'm not sure I'll have the purchase price for a purebred Lab ($900 is a bit of money), so I'll most likely just end up with a rescue dog.

I wish I could say this year or next (major puppy fever going on right now), but I'm hoping I'll be ready for another puppy in about 4 years or so. And, while that sounds like a long time, it's really not all that long. I want to go back to school and get started on a career before I commit myself to another dog. So as long as that all goes well, I think I'll be more than ready for a new puppy by then. My dogs will be 7, 8 and 9 years old by then, and that's a lot of years to go for me without a puppy! I love training puppies and really miss it. I really enjoy working with my adults too, but puppies are such fun little sponges.

For me personally, not until Elsie is elderly--so in 20 years or so. ;]

In my household, 2-5 years, probably. Once we're settled and have reliable income and all.

Not until Rosey passes and I have moved out... So not for a while

ETA: I am, however, adding another ferret in say, oh, 3 minutes from now
