Default I have dog want... BAD. Help?

Ugh... I've been doing good until I dogsat Beau and Rose for a week and a half at my place. It was perfect and now the house feels empty. I keep catching myself thinking that maybe now wouldn't be a bad time to add another dog. Probably something smallish though. It's been three years since I had a herder in the house and it still feels wrong.

I think part of it is just my fear that Summer is old and Mia has bad knees and what if a year from now I have no dog to train with? I'm not that social and a lot of my new friends since moving have been from agility and dog class. That's a lot of what I do outside of work (that and church group).

I sometimes wish I was a little more impulsive and not so anal about everything being perfect. The only hangup is that I rent. My landlord told me they just wanted to be told if I added any pets so as not to catch them off guard. I have a backup place I could move to but would rather not. My lease here is up for renewal in october so if I want to move then I'd have to then.

Oh and if you're wondering why not Beau full time, it's complicated. My little sister was really upset about the idea and Rose didn't do well as an only dog either. I just don't know that its fair. :/

I keep telling myself that the smart thing is to wait. 2 years isn't that long to wait. Gah.
