Default We are getting a new dog!!!!

We have decided it's time. Our dear Odie passed away a couple of months ago and now we just have Bear. My husband and I have been talking and we both agree we want another dog. It will probably be another mix breed and I would like to get it from the Humane Society. I feel a little guilty because I would like a puppy. I have never had a puppy in my adult life. I've always adopted older dogs that needed homes. I would like to have the puppy experience just once in my life. But, I've been looking at the Humane Society web side at the pics of adoptable dogs and there are some that are trying to steal my heart already. One is a beautiful Chow/shepard mix (same as my Bear) that is 4-years-old. I don't know, I'm confused!!!

Perhaps you'll hit it lucky when you get there and they will have some puppies. Regardless, I am sure you will find a connection with one special furpal who will steal your heart and be a wonderful companion for all of you.

There are lots of puppies on petfinder. I'm sure that you won't have any problem finding one if you don't mind driving a bit farther.

Keep us posted

Just follow that big, kind heart of yours, Irish. You'll find the right dog.

Good luck, it's a hard decision to make when you've lost a dog, but it sounds like you're at a point where you're ready! Keep us updated on which you choose, I can't wait to hear about your new addition.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone - I am excited! I should probably wait until after my daughters Grad party, which is in 2 weeks, but it sure is fun looking. BTW, thanks for mentioning Petfinder, I found a bunch of links to shelters near me. I will let you all know when the big decision is made!
