    So, we put my dog down on monday, which was pretty hard. I have been missing her a lot, she was a great dog, and I especially miss her when my son eats. She was right by his side the whole time he was eating, and I never had to clean up under his chair.
    The last few days, I have been realizing how much she actually cleaned up after him. :lol:
    I do know I am not ready for another dog, but I am thinking about getting a dust buster. Anyone know any good brands, or if those Roomba's work are worth it?

    Wait. Think about it. Grieve the loss of the one who just passed on.

    I put my pup down a year and a half ago. No pup could ever replace him. Best thing
    I did was avoid rushing into trying to replace him.

    just my view

    lottsa luck and my heart goes out to you and your family.

    :cool:

    Luissa, I'm so sorry to hear you've lost a pet. You're talking tough but I know it's hard.

    Maybe you can find a good dust buster at the local animal shelter.

    My best to you and your son.

    Trust me, I have been like a big baby with this. I just cried a little talking to my cat about it. :lol: My cat has seemed like she is lost all week, and hasn't gone out much, for one she doesn't have her guard dog.
    I knew it would be hard, but never this hard.

    Don't think I am going to get another dog for awhile, I think I will invest in a dust buster or a small vacuum that is easy to take out real quick.

    Sorry to hear about your Dog, Luissa. :(

    I know what your going through.. I've lost a pup too when i was young.. Sadly, he was only 3 years old..

    Then years later, I got another Westie and named him the same name.. (Dexter).. 2 years later we got another Westie.. 2 Best Dogs ever.. It's kinda like I haven't lost my old dog at all..

    If I get another dog, it will be a shelter dog. For one we have good shelters here, and IMO you are less likely to get a dog with a parvo etc.

    And IIRC, shelter dogs get their basic vaccinations (Parvo, Bordatella, Kennel Cough) as a matter of course there.

    Some will also have spade/neutered the animal, and with large dogs, they often will tack the intestines at the same time as a spay, because that will prevent tortion and bloat. And while you're in there... may as well. It was one thing me and my ex were so happy about was that the Oshkosh, WI shelter did that to her. Another benefit of using the web, is you can search fast and they constantly update. Saves on gas. :)

    I like going down there, I love to look at the puppies and kittens.
    But the internet would be convient.
