Heidi died two year ago today.
I still miss her every day of my life. Heidi was my soulmate and best friend and when she passed, some of the sparkle left with her.
Still, life goes on. I was planning to get a new GSD puppy in 2016, but my daughter decided to get married ( in one week), so I knew I could not afford another dog, nor did I have the time to devote to a puppy. So I would like to get one in 2017.
Here is my dilemma. We have three dogs, all seniors. Sometimes, I think maybe I am crazy to want to add a fourth one, that it would make more sense to wait until we are down to at least two dogs. But I have several reasons for wanting to get one now, first and foremost is that my life doesn't seem right without a GSD and I have been waiting for two years (and I'm not getting any younger). Also, when my husband loses his older lab (age 12 1/2) I know he is going to want another lab puppy to train for dock diving, so I would, once again, be feeling like I have to wait. And I don't wish to feel like I am just waiting for my seniors to pass, if you know what I mean. So, am I crazy to start searching for a GSD puppy right now in my life?
