I really miss having a dog.

We lost our dog in April just before his 15th birthday and I miss him terribly. We married 33 years ago, and have had a pet dog for all but 2 years of them.
In fact we have had a pet dog for the past 31 years apart from the time between losing our first boy, at aged 15 and getting our second boy.
It wouldnt be fair to get another at the moment as our work pattern would mean it would be on its own a lot.
Theres no point to this post, I just wanted to get it out there.

Ah that is sad, and I can understand how you feel. I feel too sad to look at the photos of the lovely doggies we've lost over the years as they really were part of the family. We lost one of our dogs early last year, and now our girl cocker howls when she's left on her own for 5 minutes. She is 12 and a half and we are thinking of getting a puppy, but we have a slight concern that she will teach it to howl with her?

My cocker has cost me a lot of money because I won't leave her for more than a couple of hours at a time, and I subsequently turn lots of work down. Admittedly I am semi retired (and quite lazy) so it's not such a big deal.

I appreciate you putting the dog's welfare first, because I get really annoyed with people who get a dog and then leave it on its own all day while they work.

I could have written your post myself so understand how you feel. We lost our 14 year old cocker in February and miss him dreadfully. With two out of the three boys leaving home in the last 12 months the house is very empty but like you with our work patterns it wouldn't be fair to have another one at the moment. I may look into the ideas from previous posters so thank you for posting.
